Design Process: Colorways

Traditionally, the fashion and apparel industry ran on a calendar of Spring and Fall collections. These were shown on runways in major fashion centers, available to wholesale customers. The products were eventually released to retail customers six months later or more. Now, of course, with the internet and global production cycles, fast-fashion and consumerism, the…

Creativity Generates Creativity

And energy generates energy. While it might seem to run contrary to the physics law of conservation of energy, we can use this as an emotional and inspirational truism. Everyone knows the feeling of being sluggish, tired, and having no energy. Then, you go to the gym or for a long hike- and the next…

Creative Rituals While On The Road

There is this age-old truism that travel is inspirational. Travel shakes up the stale thought patterns and brain grooves, jumbles them together and allows something fresh to emerge. This is true. But there are the practical realities of traveling as well, apart from the theoretical creative benefits. Bad food, depressing hotel rooms, too much time…
