Way back in October 2014 I posted a blog called ‘The stillness within’ all about my day at the Swarovski trend and presentation launch. I did decide there and then what my Autumn/Winter 2015 range was going to focus on and having reviewed my notes, the images I took as a reminder, my new bag collection (which I’d already made a head start on )I felt my first inspiration was still the one I was drawn to.
Like a child who gets offered a large box of sweets and is then told they’re only allowed to pick 3, the final decision making process is a tough one and also, it’s vital to feel you’ve chosen your favourites.
Might sound odd but even the simplest pair of earrings requires much thought and preparation- settings need to be made, plating colours need to be chosen, chains need to selected, co-ordinated styles need to be thought of and there is always the issue of affordability, will this sell or is it too costly?
In October’s blog I outlined my vision for this collection to be as follows:
The keywords being: retreat, escape, unplug, simplify, tranquillity.
The colour pallete- right up my street- neutrals, opalescent whites, hints of blue and shards of grey. Frosty but sparkly.
When I looked at it all laid out today, I felt satisfied- inspiration realised.
