Monday Morning Inspiraion

While surfing around on the computer, looking for a little inspiration, I came across this article http://www.cosmopolitan.com/celebrity/fashion/weird-fashion-week-inspirations#slide-6. My first thought was, "wow, this is inspiration at its best." Now, you may not like what the designer came up with, but you must agree that the pieces are quite interesting. I enjoyed this so much and thought that you might as well, so I thought I would share it. 
Phillip Lim
Inspiration: geodes. You can see the full collection here, http://www.style.com/fashionshows/complete/slideshow/S2014RTW-PLIM/#1
Oscar de la Renta
Inspiration: Fritton Sisters portraits.http://www.style.com/fashionshows/complete/slideshow/S2014RTW-ODLRENTA/#1
Lela Rose
Inspiration: Egg Chair by Danish Architect Arne Jacobsen.

Donna Karan
Inspiration: Native American chicness in the '70s.
Sally LaPointe
Inspiration: deli flowers.
Zero + Maria Cornejo
Inspiration: an archaeological dig.
Katie Gallagher
Inspiration: pink carnations.
Carolina Herrera
Inspiration: kinetic art by Carlos Cruz-Diez.
Jill Stuart
Inspiration: rock star girlfriends from the '70s, specifically Marianne Faithfull.
So you see, everything and anything can inspire something beautiful, quirky or off the wall!!!
Wishing you a wonderfully inspired day!
p.s. I've included a link to all of the collections, so there is a lot to look at if you choose. Hey, it's the week between Christmas and New Year's, how much work do you really need to do this week?  ;) Enjoy.

    1. It is really pretty and isn't it interesting that you can see the inspiration and yet it looks nothing like the inspiration piece.

  3. It is always so interesting to see where the design originated in it's first thought! Creative juices run in intriguing ways ... J

  4. Oh, I want that dress in the second row of photos, the one that looks like Queen Elizabeth I's blackwork dress. Absolutely gorgeous!
