Wondering what you want to wear this Fall?
It’s a common concern.
Recently I held a collage workshop at which participants put together a “portrait” of what they’re gravitating toward right now, sartorially speaking. They pulled images from current issues of popular magazines (they could have used other types of magazines for inspiration, too, like interior design ones — or even non-designy ones, as long as they were full of images) and created a little accordion book with them. It was a lot of fun!
Here are a couple images of what we did. You could easily do the same thing on your own with just a pair of scissors, glue, some magazines, and a small piece of poster board. Of course, you wouldn’t get my guidance and insights along the way, or the pleasant chit-chat of the participants as we worked.
Oh, and we used these very wonderful accordion books, so the finished result was more of a look book or inspiration book than a simple collage. But the beauty of this is you can make it as plain or as fancy as you like.
It was so much fun, I’ve already decided to hold another one in month or so. Stay tuned for details!
