Anna Sui's board includes fabric swatches



The design team Proenza Schouler has stuffed a thick scrapbook.


Peter Som took design cues from Edie Bouvier Beale of "Grey Gardens."


we should be prepared for a strong forties mood, seems to be all over those designer boards..

Thanks so much for these pics - I love to see the background inspirations behind collections.

yea.. what is with the wrestlers.

maybe there's some unknown trend going around we dont know about.
i was just downtown the other day in a gallery that was just blown up photographs of wrestlers (some with ringworm) eww.
I know this has nothign to do with the actual post...
But thanks for the posting the pics of the inspiration boards.. I love seeing where all the diff. ideas come from. I'll have to keep an eye out for any wrestler inspired designs.

Thanks so much, Lena!!!
Narciso Rodriguez's board is a lot different than I thought it would be. hmm...I still like it, though.

I love Francisco Costa's board...it's beautiful

I like Posen's the best.
I actually have the back wall behind my computer decorated with pictures that inspire me. I never thought of it as a "mood board" before, but I suppose it is one in it's way...

I'm gonna make mine today and I'll try my best to upload it. It was always in my mind but I never made one.

PS Narciso is way influenced by sport that's why there are pictures of wrestlers there. Last Spring he said he was influenced by basketball, etc. so it's no surprise. But I'm sure the wrestling influence won't be literal like seasons' past.
