Every design needs a main inspiration, it can’t be just random things like chairs, birds. It need something to be put in the middle then everything goes around need will be easier. After I have the idea the next thing I wanted to do is to find this key inspirations. I was a little bit distracted by lots and lots of nature pictures because they are so wonderful, but then this thought came to my mind: why dont I go find inspirations from the air plane itself?
Most of the air planes are designed likely to flying creatures, with the metal body and stiff look, it will be a good inspiration for garment that wanted to show protection and feminine look. It took a while to decide which way to go first. I choose these moving air planes with smokes to resembulance different kind of fabric. Like I said, this was only the beginning, so I’m just as confused as everybody, I didn’t know where this was going to be like in the end, but I just kept doing it.
These 4 pages are taken from my folio. I was still exploring the beauty of moving air planes. The writting and doodling shows my initial ideas and what I’ve thought was amazing from the air plane itself. Of course massive planes pictures was found and printed out, I selected some of the good ones, pasted on my sketchbook and wrote explaination. This is a good way to record the path I’ve been through, maybe not long later, I will be able to use these information again !
(All the pictures that taken from the internet was noted researces)
At the same time, I keep the research of travel with planes and kept the useful information with notes in my portfolio. Going through website is easy, everyone can do that, but how to record it? How to show that the information is or will be useful to my further design? You need to find your own way to achieve that.:)
