As a Fashion and Textile Designer I have always been taught to keep an eye on current trends, from haute couture to street fashion there are always design lessons to be learned. Part of my way of keeping up with everything and archiving style information was to keep inspiration scrap books. I must admit over the years these have become quite addictive - I can paste in magazine cuttings until early hours, as long as I have a sketch book at hand for ideas that pop into my head!
Inspiration books are great for new ideas, researching past fashions and noticing up and coming trends too. I've decided to share some of my book pages over on DIY City Community and will add a few here as I go to.
I hope they can be helpful to you too?!
