Inspire me: what's in my visual diary
Hot models. And puppies, and jewellery, and art.
Do you keep a diary?
I don't, but I do keep a visual diary. In it I keep drawings, photographs that I collect, imagery that inspires me, and plans and ideas for fashion shoots and stories. I find it a total pleasure poring over old inspirations, and these are some of the ones that have been exciting me over the past wee while.
I draw fashion inspiration from all sorts of imagery, and it needn't be totally obvious. Sometimes it might be a simple colour combo of two pieces of art together which I'll then try to replicate in colour with my clothing at home. Other times it might be a DIY inspiration, or a photo of a clothing combination that seems so obvious but that I've never thought to try. Paolo Raversi's shot of Arizona Muse in a white dress inspired me to put together a white on white feminine look. Ruby-Jean Wilson's smoking photos for Oyster magazine got me experimenting with purple eyeshadows again. I hope that you get something out of these too, enjoy!
