Inspiration struck me one late night. I spent probably an hour and a half just thinking and thinking. I was thinking about my future, mostly my career, and how I planned on getting there.
This blog has changed my life pretty dramatically. Before I was thinking of going into graphic design to do commercial advertising. Now I’ve gone a different route, changing my major to business so I can hopefully turn this blog into a pretty good job and develop my career in fashion.
So every now and then late at night, restless inspiration and motivation will hit me like a lightning bolt. I’m up when I should be fast asleep just on the floor painting, drawing, and creating like how I used to be. So I wanted to share some of those creations with you all. And maybe we can watch these dreams of mine become reality.
This one is kind of hard to read due to the lighting but in big bold letters it reads “Fully Capable of Everything”. I see this phrase on the back of a jean jacket or black moto jacket with bandana patchwork. I drew inspiration from the bandana and think it would be a fun new way to incorporate pattern, color, and text into a fashion staple.
Next we have this pretty girly, totally fun design. I used watercolor pencils to design this look. It’s a high neck, scoop back crop top with a high waisted skirt. The point of this look is to feel weightless. The sleeves fan out in a way that reminds me of a butterfly. I think this look is perfect for Spring fashion taking into consideration the color scheme and overall feel. The top is unlike any other I’ve ever seen, which I’m totally excited about.
This last one I really like. It’s called the “Boss Ass Bitch” collection. Basically, it’s a few different articles of clothing to make a girl feel powerful or even kind of bitchy I guess. I used a lot of red and also a checkered pattern duck tape to tie in the vibe of these clothes. The shoes are by far my favorite, taking inspiration from Vans, these shoes have “pucker up” written across the sole because the girls it’s designed for are not afraid to kick ass. The crop top reading “As If” is obviously inspired by the movie Clueless. Also, I drew in a choker with a money symbol. I notice a lot of boy’s clothes have money symbols but not that many girl’s clothes do.
So yes, that’s what I’ve created so far. I love fashion sketching, and I think going with this scrap book technique is totally my way to go. Sometimes I want to draw ideas based on the materials, and then sometimes base materials off of my drawings. Let me know what you think of my creations! Thanks, as always, for reading. Check back on Monday for some more warm summer looks.
