Fashion inspiration can be found everywhere you look. It can be found in nature, on the television, in magazines, on the Internet, and it can even come in the form of a song or a piece of music that you hear. The key to finding fashion inspiration is to be aware of what is going on around you at all times. You will also need to keep a sketchbook or a camera with you so that you can record the inspiration when you see or hear it. If you are running out of fashion inspiration then fear not! This article provides several places that you can find some fashion inspiration.
One of the first places to look is in fashion magazines. Popular magazines such as Vogue are available to purchase on the highstreet, while there are also so more obscure ‘indie’ fashion magazines available to purchase online. You can subscribe to these magazines so that you receive a fresh dose of inspiration through your letterbox on a regular basis. It is worth cutting out pictures that you like the look of, and then using them to create a moodboard which you can refer to as and when you need to.
There are millions of fashion blogs out there, many of which feature individuals expressing their own unique views and thoughts. Try searching online for some of the most popular blogs to see if anything takes your fancy. You can also try starting up your very own blog to express your fashion sense and your creations. By starting a blog you may get some good feedback and find that it helps you to feel inspired and create more designs.
YouTube is a great source of visual inspiration. You can check out other user’s latest fashion purchases, and see what is hot at the moment. You can also subscribe to user’s channels, so that you are alerted every time that they make a new video.
Pinterest allows users to pin images onto a static webpage, which they can then share with others. These images come from blogs, websites, magazines and things that they may have seen while out and about. You can even create your own Pinterest page and use it like an online moodboard. Pinterest is completely free to use.
Nature has been known to be a powerful source of inspiration for all different types of creative projects. A simple walk in nature will allow you to let go of limiting and negative thoughts that you may be repeating in your mind regarding your recent lack of inspiration. You can also use the nature that you see around you as a source of inspiration in itself. Look at how the flowers bloom so perfectly, how the tree branches in a certain way, and how to birds flutter across the sky. Also notice all of the colours that are found in nature. You will be sure to find some design elements which you can incorporate into your fashion work when you are out in nature.
