Hey!!! I am so happy to be sharing with you my first steps into building my first mini capsule collection. Going through this process really took me back to my university days. I realized that I had forgotten how exciting this is. It also made me realize that I am not sure about how I want to use the Sanguesita platform. For the last 2 years it has evolved in many different ways, which showed me that I am personally still in a “figuring-out” process.
At the end, what matters to me, is how much fun I am having, and how happy and excited this makes me feel. In this “episode” I am sharing some my drawing or sketching process. It is the most exciting part of my fashion journey. To me this is when your ideas become a reality. I always have so many designs having fun dancing in my little brain. I can always envision them but nothing beats putting them on paper.
This is when I figure out if the idea was strong enough as a look and as beautiful as I imagined. It is also the part where I refine it, and get deeper into the outfit’s detail. I then start coloring them in the fabrics I have seen or been inspired by. At that step I decide whether or not it really works for myself. Once I am done I usually find myself just starring at the sketches, which I want to grab and run to the fabric store with.
This is what I will doing today. Since it is Friday, which is the day off in Qatar, I have to wait until 4PM for the fabric stores to open. I want time to fly!!! It never does when you really need or want to ahaha. I will keep you posted on what I find!!
Have a wonderful Friday!!!
