Admittedly, it’s been quite some time since I looked at runway. When I was a textile designer, I used to get caught up in Fashion Week, following each runway show and pulling looks to inspire my next designs. Somewhere along the way of going totally freelance, I fell out of this habit. Lately it feels like my creative mojo is majorly lacking, so I’m refocusing and thinking about what used to work for me, fashion week inspiration being one of them! Here are few of the looks I’m digging now and how I’d pull inspiration from each.
So about this first look… bear with me you guys. I love love love pleats. And my personal style is veering way more ’70s inspired than ever before. I can’t get enough of this Co show!
The wallpaper… the color palette… the silks, tweeds, (hopefully faux) fur…
I find myself really digging layers lately. Not in that unkempt Olsen twins sort of way, but in a textural, architectural vibe. This look from Rosie Assoulin is also in my favorite color of the season that I’m calling peacock, so maybe that’s why I’m into it so much?
I’m also really digging miniature one-color prints in oversized pieces. How gorgeous is this tie + ruching detail? I’d use this as inspiration for a curtain design or deck pillows, while the olive green pant is the perfect color inspiration for some amazing rug designs.
Speaking of good inspiration for rugs… the Tory Burch show was spot on. The color palette really lends itself to home decor, especially those shades of navy, cornflower, and green.
And these next two looks are basically on my short list of looks to copy for my own style.
There still tonssss of shows to check out, but these 3 felt really inspirational for me. What do you think of them?
