After releasing the last collection 'Merry Fete' I realized how much you guys like to see more of how it all comes together behind the scenes and how I am inspired to create each collection. I thought I would share some bits about my creative process with my shop and each seasonal collection. I will admit that right after I am finished posting every single item online and sharing the collection through this blog I immediately start thinking about the future. I keep a sketch book and I start drawing designs and thinking about textures and color stories. I browse my local vintage and antique stores and rummage through clothing racks and pick up every single vintage hat or fascinator I see. I think about how each new piece I'm dreaming up will look with different hair styles. The one important thing is that I always think about this event (which I usually make up in my own imagination) where women dressed in pretty dresses and wearing my hair accessories. I think about what kind of dresses they'd be wearing, what the theme of the party is ...etc. This helps me narrow down a specific feeling for each collection. Last season I was specifically stuck on this very retro tea party feel. This season I'm still very into this retro tea party feel and I want take my original inspiration one step further. I can't wait to show you it all. I will say that this season I'm very inspired by color...if you couldn't tell by these behind the scenes photos already.
Hope you're having a great week. Tomorrow I'm sharing a new 'Living in Color' post. Can't wait.
