Do you ever go through periods where you lack motivation and inspiration and am in desperate need of some sort of pick me up? This past weekend I decided to check out the fabric being sold by a company that was closing their business and liquidizing everything. In occasions like these I don't usually know what I'm looking for or even what I want. But the moment I walked in and saw the fabric, I started feeling excited and ideas began popping into my head.
Usually, when designing a collection a designer will first draw out their sketches and look for fabrics accordingly. Sometimes however I have to feel the fabric before I know what I want to do with it. I ended up buying more than I expected to as the prices were amazing. About $5 to $30 for an entire roll. Fabric is so expensive so when I see a good deal it's hard for me to pass. I ended up buying things I don't usually buy, like the lace and trimming. I secretly love lace but don't buy it often as I don't feel it appeals to everyone. I'm excited to start some new projects though and will update when I begin working on them.
I'm a 20 something fashion designer with a love of all things beauty, skincare, health, food, travel, inspiration, and design.
