'The Royal Buffalo Hunt' Look Book
Posted on 22 September 2009
My design process starts the same with each collection:l
- First, I research what is happening on the runways in Paris, Milan, London, and New York.
- Then, I look at what is happening on the street and at retail.
- Next, I do a little history research.Â I look at vintage textiles, embroideries, and key details for whatever the collection calls for.Â Many times this includes doing actual historicalÂ research into events and cultures of a specific time period.
- Finally, before I ever set down at the drawing board, IÂ compile my 'Look Book'.Â My 'Look Book' is a collection of everything that inspires me.Â It usually includes magazine tears, runway shots, color poms, fabrications, key silhouettes, construction details, ephemera, etc. - just whatever excites me.Â Only then, can I begin the actual design process.
