Hi everyone, This video is the 1st, in the series of 4 videos on Ã¢ÂÂHow a garment collection is designedÃ¢ÂÂ. I am creating this series on request, by Irem and Sherlly. This is long pending as I was traveling last month. I am going to briefly explain the stages of the design process from research to the detailed tech pack which will be later submitted to a manufacturer. TodayÃ¢ÂÂs video is about "how to do trend researchÃ¢ÂÂ.
When you think of designing a collection of garments, you need to be aware of latest trends in colors, fabrics, styling details etc. This is the first step in the whole process. I will show you some of the easy ways to get information on the trends.
Trend research is basically for opening your mind to create new stuff according to what people are liking around the world. This will take you out of isolation and help your creative juices flow. You may get inspired by anything and everything around you. Trend research will guide you to narrow down all the ideas which are popping in your head.
Now, Where do we start? Start from searching on Google. You can type anything regarding fashion, google will give you hundreds of options to look through.
Keywords: Latest fashion trends, Fashion Trends 2017, Spring summer 2017, Fabric trends 2017
Subscribe to online trend report like Ã¢ÂÂpatternbankÃ¢ÂÂ Ã¢ÂÂ PromostylÃ¢ÂÂ Ã¢ÂÂWGSN" I will leave a link in the description box. Be part of fashion groups on LinkedIn, Google+, Facebook, twitter. Pinterest is the great place for inspiration. On social media follow well-known designers, fashion bloggers, brands. You can look at latest magazines, books. (Show my book collection) Visit a library, thrift markets. Start observing a group of people on the street, their way of dressing. Movies can be a great inspiration. When I was in college, there used to be movie watching assignments. Watch a movie and write about the costumes. This goes same for museums, and art galleries.
Gather all your inspiration and put them all together into a board. Take printouts from the internet, collect fabric bits, if you like a button or a lace grab them,tear pictures from a magazine, take photographs of architecture, nature. Collect everything and make an "inspiration board". You can create different boards for colors, fabrics, styles, trims. but I prefer putting all of them on one board. It can be as big or small as you want. pin it on your wall or keep it on your computer. whichever is convenient for you to look at.
Your research is done. You can add or remove things from your inspiration board until the time you finalize on the design ideas.
IsnÃ¢ÂÂt that simple? My next video is about "how to plan a collectionÃ¢ÂÂ I will talk about: client profile, number of designs, design details for each style, etc., If you have any doubts from this video, let me know in the comment section below. LetÃ¢ÂÂs have a discussion there. If this video was helpful to you, give it thumbs up and subscribe to my channel as I make videos every week. Start creating your inspiration board today. have fun.
