fashion scrapbook

i scanned in some interesting pages from my most recent fashion scrapbook, pages i love and find inspiring.

i pilfer american, british, and japanese fashion, interior design, and art magazines, and i glue in things that strike my fancy. sometimes it’s something i love unequivocally, sometimes i fancy something about the design, like the cut, color, texture: how someone uses their materials in an innovative way. sometimes it’s about styling: a neat way someone put clothes together, that’s particularly interesting. it can and is anything that makes my eyes smile and tickles my fashion bone.

clearly: i favor the colorful, the quirky, the twee.

i clip and paste in clever street fashion shots whenever i find them. of course, japanese mags are great for this, but street fashion spreads, i have found, can also be spotted in titles like “teen vogue”, “WWD Fast” and “nylon”, for starters.

i also paste in DIY articles, when i find them, and information about new and upcoming designers, artists, etc.

i try to completely fill a page, if at all possible.

i’ve been keeping collages/sketchbooks full of clippings like this since high school, so hmmm, that’s about 16+ years.
