    Hello guys, how r u? i would ask you if you could help me.
    well, i study for fashion designer and every end of the year (june) we make a show wich every student make own creations.
    so this year i will produce mine 2 or 3 dresses, i'll start in december to choose texture, make graphics and everythigs.

    This year the theme to get inspiration is the '1500', the clothes im going to do are haute couture. but not necessary.

    i would tell you if you have some material about this time, some pics, info, clothes and everythings is ok for me, or as alternative see some collections with me about some actual designers that got inspiration from that time (if i dont wrong this winter a lot of designers were inspired by that era, like gucci no?)

    i wanna make amazing clothes, i wanna be a professionist and be determinated, so, i wanna put all myself in this work because my clothes must be the best, the most capturing.
    i hope you understeand my help and my objection to make a hot show:blush:
    so even if you make a minim contribute i will be endlessy grateful.
    i thank you in advice, i know you're always nice and amazing.

    love you all
    :heart: :heart: oomarh:heart: :heart:

    I hope this doesnt sound rude...but the RESEARCH is one of the most important parts of a designers (or creative people in general) work...so do it well... it's an ongoing thing with sketchbooks, pieces of fabric, flyers, pages from magazines, snapshots, postcards.etc...

    You never know when you are going to use thoose things..but something made you choose them..

    I studyed fashiondesign in Milano long time ago and I went to maybe 4 exibitions a week..after a while the gallerists thought I was a journalist cos I was always around with my sketchbook...

    good luck!

    If you can find a library that has them (I don't know that they're available in any language other than English, but you'll mostly be going for the pictures), Janet Arnold's books Patterns of Fashion are amazing. She documents surviving garments from that period, including detail photos and line drawings of the pieces (including the individual pattern pieces). The books were recommended to me by a former coworker who has worked for several large opera companies in their costume departments.
