Inspiration is everywhere:

"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening."

— Coco Chanel

A little about myself:

I'm drawn to feminine detailing, prints, mixing hard & soft fabrics, and I love a good pop of color! Style shoud be effortless. A few of my favorite designers are; Kate Spade, J.Crew, Marchesa, BCBG, DVF, Oscar de la Renta, Jason Wu, Monique Lhuillier, Rebecca Taylor, Zac Posen and many more...  

For this project:

I was inspired by Taylor Swift's music video for her song Begin Again 

I have always had this fantasy of going to Paris and falling in love, like I'm sure a lot of girls have. Taylor gave the perfect description of the video to MTV stating, "It's gonna be, like, a love letter to Paris". Taylor was a vision in lavender when she wore a flowy, Maria Lucia Hohan dress. The short-sleeved, silk gown was the perfect match for her romantic and heartfelt lyrics (and Eiffel Tower backdrop!) and it made Taylor look like a goddess. Taylor's video is the starting point for my inspiration, I will be researching looks as if I were given the chance to escape into this Parisian fantasy. What would I want to be wearing? Gorgeous gowns. Yes, please!
