Notes of a Designer - Part 3
Asia has always been a major influence for me in search for fabrics, trim and bid. And the culture, colours and vibe that can be found only enhances this vision.
I personally find amazing inspiration through the chaotic way of life and confused structure of the cities.
This was the 3rd time I have sourced materials in Bali, Indonesia and I always find incredible fabrics full of colour and alluring prints. But I really love what they do best. And that is my favourite fabric to work with… SILK!
My previous two trips to Bali brought plenty of new experiences and challenges and this time was no different.
The combination of all these elements will always make my time there and work more pleasant. Even when you have a unexpected/forced holiday in between where you cannot go on the streets, talk, watch tv, use internet or any other form of technology that requires power. YEAH! It was the NYEPI Holiday which happens once a year in Bali. To my very luck it happened in the middle of my trip, which resulted in me losing 2 days of productive work but also gain 2 days of deep reflection and wisdom (I guess hahaha).
The people, the smell, the colours, the madness, the peace, the sunsets, the naive ambition, the hard work and every single little detail that I see when I’m there reflects in the finished product. So I feel like I should share this fundamental stage of my creative process.
And here it is… Thanking you Bali for inspirational times!
