Be a hivestyler, How to get inspiration for your fashion design work and creativity

Hello Family.

It is a pleasure to be here again and you need to see the way I was blushing thinking about how I will spend the rest of the day seeing beautiful work and art from all of you.
It is indeed fulfilling to come around here every single Monday and to laugh and smile with everyone, it is one leisurable moment for me.

Today I just want to hear your opinion about how you all go about getting inspiration for your crocheting, fashion work, art and all not like I did one serious needlework to showcase.

Your designs and source of inspiration for the designs are two important tools that go hand in hand.

Whenever I am short of inspiration, these one of various points usually help and I believe every fashion designer might find this helpful.

  • Reading fashion magazines.

You can get inspiration from reading fashion magazines and billboards, you get to see different color matching for outfits. Other professional designers give you hints from experience about what to do with colors and fabrics.
Fashion shows and models will display a whole new world of fashion you never thought exist.

  • Attending Fashion Seminars and awards.
    At these occasions and big events you meet top designers who will put their creativity at best attending such programs, a whole lot lies there that will cling when we attend.

Away from these sophisticated ones...

  • Environment and nature
    They all have a role in inspiring us about fashion.
    Imagine when @blezyn crotcheted a sweater with fire symbol, the mixture of colors did show a real fire and till today, that memory sticks.
    I also read about how @smilestitches made a design getting his inspiration from a running tap, that was totally awesome.

A flying butterfly can teach you about colors and am sure you have seen fabrics and designs made from snake or lion skin patterns, these are all lovely art and creativity we can pick from nature.

I would like to know how you all get inspiration for some of your creativity at the comment section.

Away from all the talk, let me say that I have been on holiday from sewing since last Wednesday after I was forced to make two graduation dresses withing 48hrs.

It was meant to be 4 but I made the two most important ones for the graduands while the other adolescent party was postponed till 13th... The blue dress is still a WIP.

I decided to relax and its been 5days I haven't sewn a thing.

Such a lovely African print

About my outfit for today, I have found this lovely trendy gown in town and I felt like trying it out to see if it will indeed fit me.

I will be making a long flowing off shoulder dress. I can see that the half length of the gown sits well with my black top already and I hope that after making the dress I would be able to still wear it because I haven't worn something this long before except foe one native dress that had to remain long but it was an A line dress.

Measurements was my waist X3 pulled into a gathers.

28" x 3. 84inches breath and 45" length.

How I want to make the dress is still cooking in my head.
This is just to add some light to my post today.

Thank you for coming around.

Yeah yeah, social media is just another great place to get inspiration from.
Sometimes I just look at a design and think of how to manipulate it into something else.

Date kor, calendar ni 😎😎😏

I saw your title photo and thought: wow!!! I love this long dress on you. It‘s different from your usual garments (which already lovely too) and I like it a lot. For me the look is very sophisticated and „noble“ (no idea how to describe it). ANd yeah to you for your speed sewing, I have no idea how you managed to get two dresses finished in this short time.
I miss sewing right now… sadly no time, I am either painting (work) or trying to get some of the knitted wips done (or headaches 🤮)
And with the inspiration… I never attended a fashion show, but this sounds amazing. I also have a look at magazines or often on YouTube or instagram. I have some designers I follow and some sewist who are much more daring in their style then me 😂

Is there a place you upload the paintings, I want to see them.
You are so good with art and representing contemporary human challenges through art, I like that.
My besties @gloriaolar is an artist but she does a different kind using drawing, although she is beginning to learn painting too.

I often have this special connection with artist, their talents wows me most times.

Thanks for the compliment.

I hope you will make quality progress with your WIPs amd hopefully we get to see you sew something nice soonest.

What a beautiful write up,.I love it. However, regarding creativity, I get inspiration by following trending news in my area of interest.

The pattern of the fabrics are undoubtedly an important part of the design of the garment. When it comes to colours, the main tool I use is the chromatic circle. Yes, the one we were taught at school and that many people underestimate. If you get to know it better you will realise that multiple colour palettes come out of it and you can relate it to nature, elegance, extravagance, warmth, among others.

Oh, I once saw that circle but have ignored it ever since. It should really help with the color stuff.
Thanks for mentioning that.
