It’s hard to believe that the Spring 2013 runway shows are already in full bloom and we haven’t even scratched the surface of fall 2012. It’s always interesting to see what motivates the creativity of designers and what their thought process is behind each collection. Fashion reporter, Taylor Harris, challenged some designers to drop hints of the inspiration behind their work for 2013. Without giving too much proprietary information, they were to submit a picture and a few sentences of what we can look forward to in spring.
Picture 1: “All things bright, bold and playful.” ─ Kate Spade
Picture 2: “Decadent Splendor” ─ Jill Stuart
Picture 3: “When one door shuts, another door opens… the American dream!” ─ Alice+Olivia
Picture 4: “Anything pink, bubbly with a little sparkle” ─ Julie Rasmussen (OK- I had to put my 2 cents in and pretend that I’m a designer.)
Picture 5: “Believe in yourself and your dreams.” ─ Julie Rasmussen (OK- you caught me again!) This picture was sent to me by my dear friend and creative colleague Heidi to encourage me. And if I was a designer, I would do an entire collection around this!”
Spring should be fun next season. And remember to be yourself and you will always be beautiful!
