Costa Rica is beautiful. It sounds like a cliche but I don't really know what else to say. People are lovely; the countryside is breathtaking. While I wandered around and searched for fashion design inspiration, my friend took notes to write her own blog (we have a lot in common!). Read hers about our trip here.
Back to inspiration for fashion design ... I have written a lot about my interests and how I incorporate them into my design work. Costa Rica was a bit of a challenge. As in, where do I look first?!? So much to see! Colors and textures are essential to fashion and textile design and therefore Costa Rica is the place to be.
Take a look below at a few examples of flowers I came across. They are all in the pink/orange/red family yet they are so outstanding in their own right. I often print photos I take on my travels and then incorporate them into my 'dress of the day' sketches. You can check these out on Instagram.
As my friend and I discussion our next trip, I am already excited about the colors and textures of the chosen destination. Creativity rarely sleeps when there is so much beauty in the world!
