History is a treasure trove of ideas

Fashion design can be fun and easy. All it takes is a desire to be creative and the willingness to let go of your fear and need to control. The history of fashion is one place where you can find inspiration and excitement. Go to the local bookstore or select a fashion book that you have on your shelf and skim through the pages. It's important to allow yourself time to do this leisurely and without pressure. I bet you'll be surprised at how inspired you are and all the creative ideas that will pop into your head. Find a period or a fashion object that really fascinates you and focus on that. Envision it in your style and own it. Now begin jotting or scribbling down your creations. Surprised??...No! You had it within you all this time. After all, to begin designing the only thing you need is an inspiration, a desire, and oh, don't forget the marker.
