Inspiration! for a Spring Collection!!
I am trying something new! Something that to almost everyone else would be obvious, but to my scattered & distracted brain, never occurred to me. From the prompting of two very good friends of mine. I'm going to be designing 4 collections this year!!!
I don't look to trends to decide what to do/wear.... but I do know what I find to be beautiful and what I like.... I am a minimalist who loves timeless & wearable clothing. I'm most often barefoot, but if you do catch me In shoes, I'll be wearing my favorite Bedstu leather boots that are about 3 years old with a pair of jeans... Anything I design/wear needs to be authentic & complement a pair of jeans! More than likely in combination with a grey t-shirt and a comfy sweater... so for the spring I've looked to pinterest, my favorite idea gathering spot. I looked for looks that I would wear, that could be worn this spring, and that I felt were timeless in design. The ideas on my Spring board are looks I'd love to wear. I am going to use these looks to inspire my 2018 Spring Collection.
With those in mind, I took to my beads and metals, and started pulling things that I thought felt light fresh and very wearable. I am really feeling mixed metals.. So I am going to have an emphasis on that. Turquoise.. It's a stone I've had a long love affair with... So that will be there. Definitely oxidized brass!... but I really do love pulling silver in again..
I can't wait to show you what I come up with!!! Stay tuned!!
Have a great day!
