One of the great things about fashion design is that you start getting inspired and design within the season you are designing for. Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. It has always been a nostalgic time, signifying the start of a new school year, the excitement of the upcoming holiday season or even just a much needed change in weather. One of the questions that I always get is, “What inspires your designs?” There are so many answers to this question, but there is always one inspiration that can get me going…fabric! Sometimes I feel like a hoarder with the amount of fabric I collect. It’s addictive. Sometimes it is just one print that can inspire the entire collection. It is an exciting experience watching the collection naturally form on its own. Here’s a glimpse of what I use to get the creative juices flowing.
