Fashion Clothing Design and the Secrets of How to Never Run Out of Ideas and Inspiration

As a fashion clothing designer you have to be able to come up with many new, hopefully, original ideas in a consistent time frame in order to produce a new garment collection for every season.

So where and how can you get those fashion design ideas and concepts from? And in the middle of all that creativity, how do you stay within the realm of marketability and wearability at the same time?

Inspiration is sometimes thought of as some mysterious magical occurrence that only blesses a few of the most talented, creative people. This is not the case though. You can create your own inspiration and motivation by developing a keen eye and an avid appreciation for everything around you and I mean everything.

All aspiring fashion clothing designers are advised to research costume history, and the work of the many top fashion designers before them. This is correct to do but it shouldn’t be the at all and be all of your ‘inspiration’ resource.

First step, start learning about fashion history / costume design in other countries around the world, including the one’s you don’t like or aren’t interested in, you never know what you’ll find out. For example, the mini skirt was a tribal Chinese costume and the bikini was everyday wear in Brazil. You never know what kind of neat facts you’ll discover.

Start imagining how you can combine styles from various periods with elements and garment designs from completely different cultures and see what you can come up with.

Second, now it’s time to get away from fashion altogether and take a look at the rest of what’s happening visually and ‘texturally’ in the world. Some examples to check out are

- coloring and markings of lynx and bobcats
- patterns and shapes of seashells
- textures and forms and lichen
- architectural styles around the world
- interior design styles around the world
- shapes of insects and beetles
- pattern and coloring on birds of prey
- shapes of bird’s bodies
- ‘architecture’ of flowers
- delicateness of bat wings combined with their furry soft bodies
- the ‘look’ of some art and fantasy films
- the style of different ‘futures’ from various Sci-Fi films
- how seaweed looks underwater

All of these very beautiful things, from water falls to moon craters can be fuel for new kinds for fashion designs. Think outside of the box and combine totally non-related things like tulips and Tim Burton films with the architectural elegance of Taj Mahal. That’s the main idea for manufacturing originality, combining unrelated things or things that have not been put previously combined.

This can come out pretty crazy, garment wise right? How to keep your collection marketable than? Simple,

1. between which ever colors are ‘in’ and what would look great in your collection, choose the right color combinations

2. depending on who your intended market is, think about the garment styles and fit they already wear and modify them, incorporating “pieces” of your inspirations and combine them into the kind of look you’re after

3. make sure your designs are comfortable

4. where ever possible, incorporate or adopt what ever happens to be the season’s trend as long as you can do it in a way that works well together with your fashion clothing design concept

How to Keep Up With the Latest Fashions and Styles!

Are you stuck in a fashion rut? It happens to me once every three years. My problem is, that when I find a style I love, I want it to be fashionable forever.
Take bootleg trousers for example. I adored them. They made me look skinny, long legged and were suitable for work, shopping and clubs. Perfect!

What happened?

Skinny jeans happened and now jeggings.! (Jeggings are leggings styled to look like tight denim jeans.-just in case you’ve missed out on this particular fashion must have) Indeed my 15 year old cousin told me last week that he was wearing “meggings”. Apparently that’s the male version!

So how do you keep up with the latest fashions and styles?

Wardrobe workout!

Firstly I split my wardrobe into sections. “Classic Can Wear Forever” and “Was On-Trend At The Time,But Think I Need To Move On”. But stop, don’t throw those clothes in the bin just yet, keep them long enough and they will come back into fashion. A few years ago you wouldn’t have thought you’d ever be wearing shoulder pads would you?

So now there is space in your wardrobe, it’s time to update your style. Great, how do we start?

Personally I start with the fashion magazines and remember its not just clothes we are looking at, but hair, make up, nail varnish and a million and one different accessories.

I always plan for the season ahead, there is not much point in updating your summer wardrobe at the end of August. Prepare for Winter 2010. Have a good look at those magazines and get an idea of the colour trends, cuts and must have items. Circle the things that you like and start to build some outfits in your mind. Always bear in mind your shape, age and lifestyle. Restrictive ball gowns are not that great for doing the school run.

Have a fashioned themed party at home. Invite your friends and crack open a bottle of wine. Ask them to pick items they think you would look great in. Its sometimes interesting to find out how other people perceive you whilst remembering that your opinion is the most important.

Once you have got an idea of the outfits you want to create, its time to get down to money. Money talks. Set yourself a budget and stick with it. With all the high street competition available these days its easy to look on trend for less.

Be brave. Sometimes I dismiss the latest female fashion trends because they won’t suit me, but how do you really know if you never try them on. Set yourself a “try on” day and just keep trying different styles. You will be really surprised to see that clothes you would never normally dare to wear, can look super cool.

Once you have some staple outfits, accessorise, accessorise, accessorise.

Remember that you can also update older outfits with new accessories, scarves, gloves, headbands, handbags or shoes. Whilst on the subject of shoes, there is a simple fashion rule to remember, new season, new shape.

Once winter approaches, everyone starts updating their wardrobes according to the season. Winter is all about outfits that keep you cozy as well as make you look stylized. Going minimalist will not make you stand out this winter and Christmas, but will definitely make you go unnoticed.

Winter is attached with Christmas, an occasion everyone is waiting for. People wear new clothes, buy gifts for each other, cook delicious foods and decorate their homes.

You cannot always wear what your favourite celebrity is wearing this Christmas, but you can always grab various fashion ideas and can then decide to buy outfits, shoes and accessories that fit you and your personality the best.

This Christmas, to keep the spirit alive, go for greens and reds. Invest in trendy coats, long sweaters, skinny jeans, printed leggings, scarves, knee length skirts, jeans, cardigans, wool head gears, printed socks and gloves and winter boots to look stylized and fashionable. Gone are the days when men and women preferred big sized cardigans and sweaters. This Christmas is all about looking fit and wearing outfits that make you look sleek and fresh.

Black has always been the colour for any occasion. Women and men loved and still love wearing black and dull coloured outfits. But, this time around, go for something brighter. If green and red does not excite you, go for purple, grey and hot pink.

Females should wear a short fur, leather or wool coat over a long fitted sweater or a top. If you choose to wear a long sweater, you can wear printed leggings underneath, along with your favourite knee length boots. If you decide to wear a top, you can wear a knee length skirt underneath, with printed leggings and long winter boots. Do not forget to grab the most important Christmas evening essential, scarf. Once you are all ready, wrap a cashmere scarf or a wool scarf around your neck. Wear accessories that make your Christmas outfit look trendier. You need to invest in cool clutches, belts and jewels that can be worn during the day as well as in the night. Christmas jewel items are available in stores all around you.

This article covers enough about what you wear and how you look; you should equally be concerned about your partners, father, brothers and male friends are wearing this Christmas. Males should wear bright coloured cardigans, along with neutral coloured blazers or a leather jacket. Women can wear jeans underneath and winter boots. They can wear a scarf; it will make them look classy. Males do not have many choices to choose from accessories; therefore, they should wear a designer watch and a brooch, once they are all ready.

All in all, this Christmas, the idea is to choose the right colour, the right cut, the right accessory and the right texture, creating attire that is unique and that enhances your entity.

1. Work on your hair

You can find out what the latest hairstyles are and learn to do them yourself or look for a hair stylist you can trust with your needs. Fancy updos will always do the trick in making you stand out in any given outfit. Using bobby pins to hold the hair up offers a simple but elegant way of looking as stylish as you wish. The pins can transform a bad hair day into elegant statements.

2. Pay attention to under dress

What most women don’t know is that what they wear underneath their outfits has a huge impact on the general outer look in those outfits. It therefore pays to give attention to your underwear to look your best in the end. Invest in good quality undergarments and choose those that fit you well so anything you wear on them comes out great. To create that perfect figure, consider wearing spanx especially if you are going to wear a tight dress.

3. Bring out your waistline

It is something you can easily do with any body type to look attractive. For instance, skirts with high waists will flatter any body type and give highlights to the waistline. They have a way of achieving that hour glass figure every woman dreams of and you can pair up with shirts that flatter your feminine physique. The secret here is to understand your body type and how to dress it so that you can make the right choices when buying your clothes. You can easily get outfit ideas online or from your stylist to get it right every time.

This is optional since there are women who feel more confident without makeup on. Before applying any makeup, ensure that you buy quality products, know how to apply the makeup and choose colors that work great for your complexion or the outfits that you choose. Sometimes simple eye makeup is all you need to add some elegance into your outfit. The cat eyes, for instance, are always dramatic and can be easily be achieved. When applying your makeup though, make sure you know what is ideal for what settings. This is because party makeup is not necessarily considered appropriate for the office.
