I started documenting the process of designing a Spring 2020 collection on my YouTube channel. We’re chugging along with the collection. What was suppoed to be a quick update, quickly turned into a long one.
A little background on me. I am a fashion designer, and am specialized in knitwear design. Knitwear design is mostly associated with sweaters but knitwear means any garment made out of knitted fabric. This includes tops, pants, jackets, dresses, and accessories.
A great book to learn about Garance Doré. This is more of an autobiography, than a style book. It’s somewhat personal. She talks about her life and describes philosophies that have worked for. You will learn more about Garance than you will about style.
For a long time, I never cared or thought much about what I wear. This is quite normal in the culture of fashion designers. Very unlike the culture of fashion media and journalism, where style expectations are impossibly high for those that work in this field.
