Above are two of my inspiration boards for the Spring 2010 "Lightness" collection. An inspiration board is really a tool to narrow down what the theme of the collection should be. You always have so many themes running around in your head, but an inspiration board really forces you to commit to an idea (though I usually end up changing it again ;))
An inspiration board is also just a piece of paper that you can look at all the time. Sometimes an idea will sound right in your head, but when you're combining it with fabric swatches, you realize, Okay that might not work together.
People always ask me how I get inspiration for my new collections. I usually just go on the internet and look for something that I have an instant conection with. This season, there were lots of colors and African themes. As you can tell, it actually morphed into a collection of lightness instead. Sometimes what you start off with is not what you end up with.

And finally, here's me wearing the Lolita dress from the collection at the recent Lightness show supporting The Fairy Godmother Project.
