You're never fully dressed without a smile!

I was inspired by flowers and the springtime. Diane von Furstenberg’s designs were also a source of inspiration for my own collection. The prints that she uses and the silhouette of her wrap dresses were the main sources of inspiration that I drew from her. I wanted to incorporate floral prints and floral colors for the fabric throughout the collection. I knew that I wanted to design a collection of rompers because I had never made any.

Concept Statement: 

Rachel and I were inspired by the Mesoamericans, specifically by their use of colors. We wanted to create a collection that was wearable but still had the influence of their dramatic dress.

I was inspired by all of the fashion elements in The Devil Wears Prada. I mainly drew inspiration from the characters Andy Sachs and Miranda Priestly. I loved the way Andy transformed her style throughout the movie and Miranda’s overall classy but fashionable style. Throughout the movie, the characters wore fashionable outfits whether dressed up or down. I drew different elements from their wardrobe for the color and texture swatches. The main color elements throughout were black and white with pops of color, sequins, and lace.
