Fashion Week – A board mood

Fashion Week has come and gone from NYC never again returning to the tents of Bryant Park. And while most New Yorkers have had their share of fashion for a bit I’d be remiss not to post here this slide show Vogue ran before the hoopla began. It highlights designer mood boards and inspiration walls. I find it fascinating to have a peek into the  the creative process. And I also have had fun taking the mood board image and comparing it to the actual collections that were shown. The image above is from Jason Wu. He wrote “My fall 2010 collection is inspired by Irving Penn, by both his work and personal style. I applied the grainy textures of his photo negatives to intricately woven and printed fabrics and paired them with a slouchy menswear silhouette he often favored.”

The image below shows one of his looks. It’s pretty true to his original concept.
