I would not consider starting to design a collection before constructing a few mood boards. They are an invaluable resource while designing.
For my new Autumn Collection the key inspirations are:
- Autumn fog combined with colourful autumn leaves
- Warm wooden interiors with an open fire
- The structure and stitching of the quilts of Gees Bend
- The paintings of William Crozier, Wolf Kahn, Emil Nolde and Judith Cain
