It began with an inspiration board..

Oh, I love inspiration boards!! They are like a mix of different things you like...prints, colors, fabrics, magazine pictures, photos, fashion trends, accessories, name it! An inspiration board is a piece of you reflected with different elements. It's a great start whenever you want to design something and the great thing is that you can make it as the way you like. Once you have collected all the little things for your board just begin the process of editing. Spread all the pieces out on a table and start picking the ones you like the most. Favorite color combinations, textures, prints, expressive images, etc, will be coming together to become a whole. Try to relate things that can be part of one theme so you can get to your final inspiration in a better way. Once you finish the process of editing, save the rest of the pieces that you're not going to use because you might need them again for this board or another.

These are some of my designs inspired by embroidery and colorful prints..

Boho and Hippie chic... Love them!!

There's something about bohemian and hippie-chic fashion that I love. The prints, fabrics, textures, color combination, the vibe, etc. Many designers are incorporating this unique trend in their some of my favorites...

Inspiring places always inspire beautiful things...
It's great to have your work space decorated the way you love.
It is well worth it to go to your place and find beauty in every corner.
Simple and unique things make the difference...

Get inspired by exotic and unique creations...

I love unique and lovely accessories to spice up my outfits. It could be a little piece of jewelry, or a lovely purse, those things make any outfit interesting and especial. You can find something unique shopping at indie boutiques such as Modcloth, Free People, etc. or Vintage stores and even Flea Markets. Find that little something that represents your individuality and style! Above you can see some little examples. xoxo

Inspiration comes from everywhere. Some people get inspired by specific things such as art, photography, fashion trends, nature, fabrics, etc. I specially find inspiration in fabrics. Whenever I go to a fabric store I look for colorful and interesting prints. When I find them, I immediately think about what to create with that piece of fabric or what kind of garment would be more suitable for that fabric. That's why it is very important to be surrounded by things that inspire you. I believe that creativity is the main key in the fashion world. Creativity is something you can't learn at school; however, you can help yourself to find inspiration in order to create something fabulous. What helps me a lot when I'm not feeling very inspired (Because it's impossible for a designer to be inspired every single minute) is keeping things that I love around me. For example, I really appreciate handmade things, specially accessories or decoration objects such as rustic frames or jewelry boxes. Those things inspire me to create something new. In addition to that, I also like to take my camera and walk around the streets trying to find interesting things that catch my eye. I love photography so that helps me a lot whenever I need to get inspired. Visit museums when you have the chance and take pictures of the work of art you like in there. If you can't take pictures inside the museum, take a notebook and pencils for sketching. Art in general is very inspiring and I love it!!. Finally, be as close as possible to fabrics, swatches, trims, etc. Feel the texture of each fabric. Go to fabric stores as much as you can, even if you're not going to buy anything, just go to get some inspiration.
