Seeing as this is my Designer Diary, I feel obligated to tell you guys I have been in a moment of severe designers block. It’s like writers block, but for fashion design. I’ve tried everything to shake it, trip to the beach, visit to the alpaca farm, watched 6 winter sunsets in a row – and still – nothing. I even did something completely out of my norm – I went to a football game! However I know there’s only a few things that can really cure my fashion design blues.
So over the weekend I did what I always do, got the latest issue of Porter Magazine, took a long drive out in the country, sketched over a glass of wine, listened to The Cure, and pinned some mood board images from my favorite Sofia Coppola films. Maybe I have the winter blues, but at least I have cashmere sweaters and Christmas spirit to keep me going. Where do you go for inspiration anymore when everything online feels so disposable? Feel free to send me inspiration images via Pinterest and in comments below for my 2016 collections, xo Alyssa Nicole
