Anyone who thinks that stylists’ daring ideas emerge a few hours before they hit the catwalk is wrong. To create a clothing collection, an extensive creative process is required, which involves a long creative search. Before throwing themselves into making the pieces, stylists need to choose a source of inspiration. It could be a work of art, a building, a character… Anything goes!
O awesome.club decided to unveil the creative process of major luxury brands. That’s why our team separated images of the inspirations behind iconic clothes. Even Rachel, the character from the series Friends, inspired the creation of striking pieces. Check out!
