Inspiration - The Vertical Lines of Valentino Fall 2016
I love looking at fashion show pictures of different designers. It is such a great source of inspiration. One of my favorite designers is Valentino. The designs are so elegant, classy and full of different design elements. With any collection, there is a general theme or design element that you will see throughout the collection. Some elements are adacious while others can be as simple as a color. Often, one design element is a combination of several little details that create a look or style, whether it is vertical lines of intricately worked beads and embroidery.
For my current work in progress, I focused on a very simple design element that I saw throughout the entire collection. That is vertical lines. The vertical lines are in many of the garments; they are translated into seams, trims, beads, and patterns in the fabric. Here are a few garments for the Valentino Fall 2016 collection.
