DESIGNER’S RETREAT| THE 'LOVE FOR SOLITUDE' OF FASHION DESIGNER

Whether it's a short or long duration, fashion designers carve out time for themselves, be it to brainstorm solutions for ideas, focus on the creative process of sewing and pattern-making, or simply unleash their creativity. Additionally, spending time 'alone' has been statistically proven to enhance their work efficiency.

FINDING LIBERATION OF 'YOURSELF'

Liberating "the self" through the language of fashion allows designers to express their individual style, creative philosophy, and worldview. We often see fashion designers or Creative Directors working with their teams in the studio. However, in different moments, they maintain certain moments of silence to engage in dialogue with themselves. During specific times such as creating mood boards, sketching designs, or finalizing the lineup, most designers choose to detach themselves from the crowd, colleagues, or distractions that might divert their focus.

SOLUTIONS FOR MAJOR FASHION CONCEPTS


Fashion products are seen as powerful bridges between designers and their customers, as well as their communities. Many designers and Creative Directors dedicate time to travel extensively, broadening their perspective on both the domestic market and neighboring regions through business trips. These journeys serve as wellsprings of creative inspiration for their future collections. Fresh ideas about materials, colors, and silhouettes, coupled with an understanding of emerging trends, will chart new directions for the brand.

Sewing and pattern-making inherently demand specific focus due to their intricacy and precision. Therefore, a quiet space is essential, especially when designers are researching and working on complex silhouettes or investing deep thought into their creations. With complete concentration, mistakes and errors in minor details are minimized, helping alleviate pressure.
