'The Royal Buffalo Hunt' Look Book

Posted on 22 September 2009

My design process starts the same with each collection:
  • 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.  I look at vintage textiles, embroideries, and key details for whatever the collection calls for.  Many times this includes doing actual historical  research into events and cultures of a specific time period.
  • Finally, before I ever set down at the drawing board, I  compile my 'Look Book'.  My 'Look Book' is a collection of everything that inspires me.  It usually includes magazine tears, runway shots, color poms, fabrications, key silhouettes, construction details, ephemera, etc. - just whatever excites me.  Only then, can I begin the actual design process.
l My 'Look Books' have varied widely in the past.  Some are slam dunked, 'get 'er done' projects and some are very elaborate.   I remember one particular season where I replaced every model's head with Annie Oakley's and placed a skeet rifle in their hands.   When Audrey saw it she  said I had way too much time on my hands! Well, whether simple or elaborate, each 'Look Book' is very personal; it is what guides and inspires me during the design phase.   In the following posts, I am going to pull out some of my favorite pages from this season's Look Book.  It is called, The Royal Buffalo Hunt, by Double D Ranch™. Enjoy! l [caption id="attachment_750" align="alignnone" width="575" caption="Royal Buffalo Hunt, Look Book Cover"]Royal Buffalo Hunt, Look Book Cover[/caption] l
