Finding Inspiration

The first assignment in the illustration class is to begin finding inspiration for our final runway look. The instructor, Katie Rodgers of PaperFashion, gave us some online resources that she uses to find inspiration. I spent hours last night perusing gorgeous dresses! It was fun and exhausting. There was one point where I wasn't sure if I was going to find some designs that really spoke to me. But then I hit my stride and started pinning like crazy. We are supposed to narrow down our search to 5-7 looks. I uploaded 11, but I did categorize them into 6 categories. I think that counts! You can see the full mood board in my skillshare project. Here are 9 of the looks:


I think the 2nd and 3rd, top row, are my favorite, although I love the movement of the dress on the bottom row, middle. Which are your favorite? Next up...sketching! Can't wait to start! I'll post some sketches tomorrow.

Dresses are by 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9
