Inspiration: Rugged Denim


Regardless of the setting there is something so utterly American about denim. It's iconic. It's also very inspiring to me. When I was in fashion school the projects at which I excelled (bragging rights: and which were later exhibited at the school's open house as examples of creative student work) usually contained denim samples. It is, without a doubt, one of my favorite textiles.

These particular tear-outs are inspiring to me because they evoke a sense of adventure, boldness and self-confidence. The model's hair styling and makeup add a touch of glamour. Love it.

Inspiration: Ethnic Romanticism


I like the layering, choker, beehive, turban-like effect created by the scarves, lace, ruffles, transparency, and (while I'm not a big fan of bows around waists because they remind me of gift wrapping) the ribbon detail. Plus, I'm a HUGE fan of models who proudly show the gaps in their front teeth, or as they're known over here: "dents du bonheur" (teeth of happiness). We need models who show their gaps more often.
