Designers’ Inspiration for Fall/Winter 2013

All throughout the month of February fashion designers have been showing off their Fall/Winter 2013 collections on runways around the world. Buyers, editors, socialites & fashionistas gathered in the major fashion capitals of New York, London, Paris and Milan, to see what the designers have in store for us come next fall. While the models revealed bright primary colors, classic prints, super-sized silhouettes and tons of texture on the runway, do you ever wonder where the designers draw their inspiration from to create the things they do?

Women’s Wear Daily published some of the images & ideas that motivated designers to conceptualize their cold-weather collections for next year; and in hopes to inspire some of you, here’s a look at what inspired them…

I challenge you to choose one of the designer inspirations you see here, then review that designer’s runway show (click here to see photos of the shows via www.style.com) and see if you can detect the underlying inspiration in the collection they introduced.

Do the designs they styled coincide with what stimulated them, or did you miss the connection?

Send me a comment to let me know which designers you looked at and if you saw the link!
