Sometimes you come across a website, which keeps you going back for more, the website ShowStudio has an array of pages to inspire anyone. Having a fashion design background I was drawn to a project on the website, which invites designer’s to share a pattern. The project began in 2002, offering patterns from designers such as John Galliano, Yohji Yamamoto, Alexander McQueen, Martin Margiela and Giles Deacon. My favourite so far is the Giles Deacon dress, the pattern which was taken from the Autumn/Winter 2007 collection, is a basic dress which you can transform into your own and can easily be transported into 2013. With the currently print trends you could design a print featuring cactus, cats, crystals, florals, anything really and you could print this on one of our great fabrics and get sewing; to create your own personalised designer outfit.
Head over to ShowStudio and get inspired. They have great articles on designers and artists and you can download the Giles Deacon pattern to create your own.
