Colours and textures of fabrics from different collections always inspires me, and at the beginning of each season you can usually find me looking at what’s on the runway and trying to source something similar locally. On the odd occaision it’s a case of knowing exactly what I want to make, but most of the time I find the fabrics first and then decide – for me you kind have have to find the fabric to work out what it would look best as. I recently spent some time gathering pieces for the coming summer season online and in markets, inspired by the runway as well as the fun of festivals, picnics and everything the warmer seasons promise. I’ve already started working on something with the pink lace, but wanted to put it out there to you guys – what should I make with the other fabrics?

Spring fabrics

Pink lace (let’s talk Burberry), white mesh – cos it’s summer, and silver metallic silk (a little bit Altuzarra)
