I’ve been gettings requests to make a coloring tutorial.
Hey guys! Thanks for all the new follows, I have some following back to do. It has been a busy transition back into my last semester after studying abroad but guess what? I am starting a personal designer research project that I will be sharing with you as I go. I hope to compile a “book” of sorts of influential designers, whether they design in my (always changing) taste or not, and pull out what made them successful and the best advice I can find from their interviews and books over the years. I think this will be helpful not just for me, but for others too. This idea started with the realization that although my influences are far and wide, they are not very deep into any one field and I think starting with THE PREDECESSORS is the best way to refresh my perspective and fill in any gaps in knowledge. There is much to learn from the great designers other than sewing techniques. Anyway, here is a preliminary list I just brainstormed of designers I would like to research:
Marten Van Der Hoorst
Issey Miyake-Notebook on cities and clothes
Rei Kuwakubo/Comme Des Garcons
Viktor & Rolf
Creatures of the Wind
Who else should be on this list? I’m looking for “genius” designers rather than only rich/well-connected designers but I guess there are a few more Italian ones I could include. I am not really interested in covering Chanel, because I know the label inside out and I feel it is so much a part of almost everyone’s fashion vocabulary. With that one excluded, what else?
Happy New Years Eve Eve. 2013 will bring a new era for FDD, including reviews, interviews, interactive things and such. Please do submit your own resources or send an ask anytime. Cheers!
