I'm currently working on SS16 and it's safe to say the colour pallet is quite girly, amongst the odd hint of jet black. This editorial of Charlotte free for Chanel seems to be dominating my sketchbook pages.
After the Muuse newsletter dropped into my inbox I was immediately inspired and excited for SS15 colours and prints. Although it's absolutely freezing outside and I wasn't adventurous enough to wear a skirt to London Fashion Week last week (for fear of frost bite), it's still extremely inspiring and motivational to know spring/summer clothes are just around the corner.
I think introducing these designers as 'upcoming' doesn't quite do their refined design skills credit, but there may be a few names showcased below that you've never come across before.
Featured in the collective lookbook in collaboration with Muuse is: Louise Korner, Elias Hogberg, Damien Ravn, Huang Ting Yun and Lina Michal.
As that time of the year approaches when all fashion loving eyes are on our capital city, I turn my attention to the innovative designers who deserve center stage during London Fashion Week. I've attended the Fashion Scout event at the Freemasons Hall in Covent Garden a few times now and love the eclectic mix of designers they showcase. I'm most looking forwards to seeing what Joáo Melo Costa displays this season because JUST LOOK what he has previously achieved:
urghhhhhh so good! I'd wear that very last outfit complete with embellished scarf in a heart beat.

I gather images like a hoarder, so here are a small clump of things that have ended up in a folder; collected together for one reason or another. Some images my own, some not. Some used for mood boards whilst creating print collections and other may not have made the final cut.
