Moodboard: Carter Rae


I have notebooks upon notebooks full of these kinds of collages. For a bit of nostalgia, I look back at old ones to reflect on the person/seamstress/artist I was then versus now. Just as much as the tangible papers, I also enjoy making digital collages. It’s just another opportunity to stretch my creative muscles. Instead of painting a picture with my hand and a paint brush, I create an image using a mouse. Here is just a little something I made to document Carter Rae, the green dress I just completed.

    Our design professor advised us to keep a scrapbook for our projects. And write down all the sources where we got out inspiration, draw our design, write down how we expect it to work and how we are going to sew it(technological solution and the order of work) and after we are done, make conclusions and compare our original ideas and final product. It seemed a bit too much for every skirt or dress or whatever we made. Your collage makes a lot more sense to me. Maybe I’ll start something like this as well. Thanks for the idea! πŸ™‚

    Very informative details Maddie and what can I say about your posts. They are so artistic. Love it. I used to make lots of inspirations boards and collages in school before I even knew they were called inspiration boards or collages. I didn’t bother to keep them since my artistic mind died few years back. Wish I had known it would be born again πŸ™‚

    I had read about the petersham in one of the couture sewing techniques books. I haven’t tried it though. Thanks, Preethi.
