Some Great Clothes and a Quote

Hi, beautiful creative minds! Im working day and night for the submission. As my theme is Hollywood Classics, I’m researching and collecting pictures of that era all the time! Those days, and those clothes!! Oh my God!! My favourite time period is 40s to 60s. What’s your? At that time clothes were functional and feminine. The patterns were so amazing! I was looking at all those mail ordered patterns and they were incredibly beautiful. People used to make their own dresses. I remember how my grandmother used to have a Singer sewing machine , a very vintage one. I think watching her working on her small projects made me fall in love with sewing and clothes. As a kid I made a dress out of an old curtain and mosquito net 😂 Grandmother was very proud of that piece. 

Ok enough of my story, now enjoy these beauties !! 




Sooooo obsessed with this green satin dress. 😍



Some hair styles for the beauty lovers and fashion illustrators. 
And now it’s time for the quote 😎


😂😂😅

Have a great day !! 😊

Beads & Sequins Motif : Tutorial

I shared this picture with you guys before. Now I’ll teach you how to make this simple motif on your own .

For this tutorial you will need 

1) beads

2) Sequins

3) thread

4) needle ( ask for the thinnest one)

5) scissors

6) fabric

First, draw the design on fabric, preferably  by pencil. Thread the needle and take 5 beads of you choice and stitch them like this –

Secure the line of beads in the following process –

Another picture if you still can’t understand –

Make 3 small lines containing 5 beads per line. Then use a sequin and 3 beads to create a dot in the motif –

These three beads will keep the sequin on place. Finish the mofif with a knot at the wrong side of the fabric. 

That’s it! It is this simple! You can easily use this motif on your top/ skirt / collar / bag .. almost anywhere you want. It’s not even time consuming. 

Let me know if i was able to explain it properly or not!! 

Love you beautiful creative people 🤘❤

How to Create a Collection : Part 3

Hi beautiful creative people, in this post I will talk about the 3rd stage of creating a designer collection. In previous two posts I have talked about the process of mind mapping and making a Themeboard. Now it’s time to make a Look Board and a Colour Palette. 

We need a Look Board because in the process of creating a collection we must be clear about certain things :

1) Who are the target customers?

2) Price range

3) Casual wear or Pret/ evening wear / bridal wear etc . We should be clear about what we are going to make. Afterall fashion is a business.

So to get a clear idea of the range of clothes we are going to creat, we will refer to the look board . 

Creating a look board is easy. Get few magazines and cut out those pictures of garments that you feel will go with the look of your collection. Now make a collage with those pictures. 

For example : My theme is Books and I want to create a collection which will be a little vintage and feminine and full of day dresses. So I collected pictures accordingly. You can download pictures from internet as well. 


After creating a Look Board we have to think what kind of colours will go with the Look as well as the Theme and also with the season. I’m going to create a collection for Spring Summer 2017. For that I hade to do a little research. There are many sites which forecast colours, go to any of them to get some ideas on what colours will be trending on 2017 summer. I did that and came up with these colours.


Note:

1) colours must have Pantone numbers.

2) in a Colour Palette there should be more or less 3 warm tones , 3 cool tones and 3 nutrals. 

That’s all for today’s post. On the next post I will discuss the process of fleshing out the designs. Till then enjoy making a look board and selecting colours. 😊❤

Ps : I love you guys 😊
