Designer Update - Summer 2010 Season Inspiration Stage

I know the name of the blog is Diary of a Young Designer and I kinda realized I don't post much about the progress and the procedures of how my sis & I develop our accessory line so, decided to write a little about how we gather inspiration for our new designs.

Lately I've been totally inspiration-less, as dry as an old dried out well; so my sister decided to gather lastest trends and fabric samples and build up this super portable inspiration board.

In designing the collection there are a billion steps to cover. From inspiration gathering to sketching to finding the perfect materials and the final product, it's all one huge adventure. We both divide tasks; my sis is the researcher, she's the one that predicts trends, finds inspiration & fabrics/materials, and programs and styles all photoshoots. I am more crafty. I'm the girl behind the sketches, the needles and glue and the sewing machine.

Well I'm thinking about making this a regular post, so probably next time I'll post some sketches and drawings. =D


  1. thanks for the comment! :)
    i've only recently started composing music, but yes, it really has to come from something personal, from my heart.
