HOW TO CREATE PERSONAL INDENTITIES IN FASHION DESIGN?
CONFIDENCE IS THE FOUNDATION
In fashion and style, sometimes confidence is halfway there. Believing in ourselves and constantly digging and developing our creative ideas will help us improve daily. However, confidence does not mean pride, it is the foundation for us to have more motivation to learn, try and have more faith in ourselves.
DISCOVER DIFFERENT "VERSIONS" OF YOURSELF
If you don't like someone's design, don't laugh at it, because it's not necessarily their most complete version. Every designer will explore and experiment with different concepts, materials, and color palettes. Some people want to keep a style for many years in a row, others go through many stages to understand what they like. To fully develop your identity, allow yourself to go through each stage as naturally as possible. Because this is a journey not day 1, day 2.
CREATE " THE TWIST" IN DESIGNS
The "twist" here refers to the breaking way, the irregular way of developing the design and breaking the normal framework (Go for the unexpected). This does not mean that we will design too unrealistic costumes, but only encourage each person to step beyond their own limits to create their own styles through detailed arrangement when drawing, styling, and using colors...
FOCUS ON PERSONAL IMAGE
"Determine how you want to show up in the world" is the advice of many experts on what individuals should ask themselves: how do we want to appear to others? With Fashion Design too, the designs need to reflect partly its owner. Not all designers dress like their designs, but this is one of the suggestions you can refer to to add a more personal identity to the collection.
IMPORTING PERSONAL STORIES & MESSAGES INTO COLLECTION
No matter which concept we choose to design the collection, the context and message must connect directly with the designer. The collection's inspiration should be based on the values in life that we care about and aim for or our actual experiences but now develop through fashion. We can refer to other fashion houses/designers to learn how they put a "background story" into each collection.
