Creation starts with an emotion I want to convey through my designs. And then, it's a matter of letting the creativity flow. I love playing with different colors and patterns, experimenting, and seeing what works together. I never stick to one particular style or pattern. I like to mix and match and create something new and unique every time.
When I'm creating a new garment, I first start with the fabric. I like to work with natural fibers, like cotton, linen, and silk. They feel soft and comfortable against the skin and have a natural flow that makes the garment look and feel alive. Then, I choose the colors and patterns that will complement the fabric and bring out the best in it. I never try to match the colors or patterns too perfectly; I like to leave some room for improvisation and unexpected combinations.
Once I have the fabric and colors and patterns chosen, I start to sketch out my design. I don't like to plan everything out too precisely. I like to leave some room for the garment to evolve as I work on it. I like to try out different shapes and silhouettes and see how they look when combined with different fabrics, colors, and patterns.
I like to think about the person who will be wearing the garment. I like to think about how they will feel in it, how it will make them look, and how it will make them feel. I like to think about the occasion they will wear it to, and what kind of mood they will be in. I like to think about how the garment will make them feel special and unique, and how it will make them feel confident and comfortable.
When I'm finished with a garment, I always take a step back and look at it critically. I like to ask myself if I am happy with the final product and if I think the person who will wear it will be happy with it too. If there's something I'm not happy with, I'll go back and fix it. I never release a garment until I am completely satisfied with it.
I have been creating garments for many years now, and I still love it just as much as on the first day I started. Every time I complete a new garment, I feel like I have created a new piece of art. I love seeing the final product, and I love seeing the smile on the face of the person who wears it.
The living garment is living for me because I do change it. I never stick to one particular style or pattern, and I never stop evolving and growing as a designer. I love the creative process, and I love the feeling of bringing life to a piece of fabric. The living garment is a reflection of my creativity, my passion, and my love for design.
