This week for my Fashion Marketing course I had a really amazing lecture by Victoria from inthefrow! She was talking about taking inspiration from designers and it really inspired me to go home and look at all the beautiful designer clothing that is out at the moment. I love reading Vogue and scrolling through the designer websites looking at what they have in and then trying to recreate my own version of the look with high street pieces.
So I made two different boards filled with designer pieces which were all found on net-a-porter. One is the more classic and cult designer pieces inspiring that timeless style which I love and the other is more adventurous and unique encouraging me to take more risks in fashion. I know I will probably never be able to afford any of these but I think it is lovely to look and take inspiration from designers. A lot of the time high street brands are taking looks and creating there own versions of designer pieces for a fraction of the price. So when I go shopping I like to shop for items that are designer inspired and look more expensive than they really are.
These two boards are just my personal inspiration but I would really encourage you to make your own. It’s great fun and then you can start searching for high street versions of the items that you love.
