WIP | Collection Moodboards

July 16, 2012

When I first got serious about learning everything I could about fashion illustration, I decided to make some mood boards of collections I wanted to put to paper. What are mood boards? They’re basically an idea board you follow during your creative process. From colours, and muses to inspiring photos & quotes. Below I will share my favourites and my personal story behind them.

“… you start out on a creative journey you might think you have a firm idea of what you want in mind but by creating a moodboard you actually go through a creative process”  – MummyLish

Sueño; Something between dreams and reality. When I think of a “dream” I think of flowing airy silk, dream-catchers and tribal prints, the ability of floating, wavy hair, wings, ladders, and basically a mix of ethereal bohemian-goodness!

Birch-esque; Birch trees, in my opinion, are the most beautiful trees ever. The colour white (beautiful!) + a texture similar to peeling paint = love.

Radically Quaint; This came to be thanks to my friend Lauren Dunning – She wanted me to mix the Victorian era, and the Hippie fashion of the late 60’s together.

Into the woods;
Thanks to my friend María Méro this came about – she wanted me to create an elegant Fairy themed Collection using any fairy element of my choice. Can you guess which fairy I choose?

Simply Peacock; And lastly, does this look familiar? Of course I couldn’t go by without making a peacock collection – I’m currently working on this. Sketches will be up soon on my art blog – Natalie Brooke Designs

    Hi Natalie! Thanks so much for the link through to my tutorial :) You have made some fabulous moodboards, I love them! My favourites are the peacock and fairy one, although did you know I love birch trees too? I make carvings in birch for my Etsy shop! I am currently planning a fairy party for my little girl and might just follow your lead and make a fairy moodboard for inspiration. Lovely to find your blog, it is beautiful xx
