One of the most interesting things about the Marc Jacobs show last week was his use of unexpected combinations, layering and rich variations of color on a diverse range of materials from leather to gauzy silk dresses. I completely fell in love with this collection.

The Rodarte show evoked a very worldly feel to me. From nomad prints and geometric patterns to Chinese blue and white porcelain inspired embroideries, they were really able to capture a sense of global design. They also utilized a broad range of materials from sequins and leather to carved wood and metals.

I was so unbelievably inspired by last week’s fashion week and I look forward to using this inspiration in future projects! Who knows, we may see a mandarin orange Carolina Herrera inspired bellyband or an Oscar de la Renta embroidered carnation design motif in future invitations!
