However, I have a question:Which part of the library do I go to, to find these type of books with pictures in them, because in my library, all the books are reading books and I guess it's fine to be inspired by something you've read and have not seen visually, but I don't even have enough time in the day to start reading all these books, and I might not even be inspired by any of them. I know my other option is to go out, visit places, museums, countries, etc. but I won't be able to do this all the time because again, I so busy all the time with other stuff.

Reply Paloma Roque says: June 18, 2018 at 2:33 pm I just watched a bunch of your videos, don't know why I find them so interesting even though I'm a graphic designer/illustrator and have nothing to do with fashion but your creative process it's so inspiring Reply victor b says: July 4, 2018 at 5:01 pm @zoe hong what's preferred in professional portfolios, digital moodboards or physical? in school I've done both and have skill in both but what is seen as more professional usually? (especially when most of my source images would need printed out and that might not mix with glossy magazine pages) Reply Nick Mozzicato says: July 5, 2018 at 4:27 am Issey Miyake does a great of at taking inspiration from traditional elements of Japanese culture and making it more modern for Men. His textiles are beautiful too. Reply Nick Mozzicato says: July 5, 2018 at 4:35 am I'm here watching because F.I.T. requires I make a mood board to inspire illustrations for their fashion design admissions. And being a fine arts major in community college currently, I have no idea how to make a moodboard or draw fashion sketches. This video taught me I was going about my mood board all wrong this week. I picked 2 photos I took from my trip to Morocco and wanted to create a board focused on the bold colors I saw and geometric prints. So I attached to a foam board my photos of the gardens I saw with bright colors in Morocco next to geometric shapes from magazines of dishes and furniture. And I laid out strips of fabric next to it. I basically confused my friend who is a graphic designer professionally and uses moodboard for work. I skipped all the steps and went straight to the board with an idea in my head lol Reply jammersss says: August 9, 2018 at 2:12 pm Do you think it’s more helpful to be able to cut out and assemble a mood board hands on or can digitally making one also work to brainstorm ideas just the same Reply Emma Reed Inspired by Life says: August 12, 2018 at 9:12 am After 18 years I am finally getting my ass in to gear, facing my fear of failure and just enrolled in a Fashion Design course. I have to say a massive thank you you videos are massively helping me! I have watched a few now feel less overwhelmed. My biggest worry though is that I used to be great at drawing, especially fashion figure however, I had a Stroke almost 3 years ago which affected my right side and I struggle a bit with my fine motor skills, I can still write and draw but not as well as I used to…. Will this hold me back in the Fashion world? Reply stylish muva says: August 16, 2018 at 6:50 pm Hey Zoe! I'm watching all your videos and I'm also currently trying to Set up a fashion portfolio but I have a question….can I create more than one mood board for a portfolio? and if so do the different mood boards have to be the same concepts as the other?… Reply Hadeel Eltobgy says: August 17, 2018 at 12:54 am I wanna ask sth that maybe moodboard in final section may be look messy" different pictures black and white and different colors but it leads to same idea.. I feel if I stick to only one thing like furniture as an example to be inspired I will be stuck into it in my project not to be open-minded "you know what I mean" Reply Haemi Lee says: August 20, 2018 at 6:10 am i had literally no idea about the design process and was super stressed about creating a portfolio for college; i'm 2 videos in and have already learned SO much. thank you everything, you're a lifesaver.

I feel more confident to go to fashion school now Reply Amanda Queiroga says: January 16, 2019 at 2:06 pm i have no interest in becoming a fashion designer or doing it as a hobbie tbh, but as someone that has had the idea of being a freelancer illustrator on my free time, this is a wonderful method to build a good concept for composition and color scheme. Thank you very much! (Sorry for the bad english) Reply Laura Williams says: January 24, 2019 at 9:02 pm ..a designer after my own heart.

Reply Joenys Fraticelli says: February 26, 2019 at 6:37 pm I love your videos and it frustrating for me that I go to college for this and they do not talk about this stuff the way you do. They just want us to be exactly what ever they think it should be the inspo and they limit us. They are making me loose my passion and have frustrated me to the point that I doubt my talent. I don't know yet if I am gonna still stay or try to learn by my self and nailed it on my way or stay until I graduate Reply Seth Dylan says: March 9, 2019 at 6:57 am Hi 🙋I was looking at beautiful chicken before i came here, they are so cool xD Reply joseph duenas says: April 3, 2019 at 4:07 pm Nihongo o hanashimasuka?

Reply Luciano Brancato says: April 15, 2019 at 10:17 pm I can only sew by hand. I still don’t know how to use my sewing machine haha. Reply Ansel Croft says: April 28, 2019 at 11:47 pm Howdy, Zoe. Is that okay to use photoshop to make Mood Board and put in my portfolio(website)? Cutting pics from books kinda ruin the book, and printing color photoes are also costly. 🙁 Reply J Still says: May 22, 2019 at 11:33 pm I’m new to visual communications and I’m absolutely loving your channel!!!!!

Reply فاديه الصيعري says: June 22, 2019 at 3:47 am 👍🏼 Reply Zahira Rosado says: June 24, 2019 at 3:23 am omg i think the same, i hate when they say "why do i need to sew?" , " i know how to draw so i'm studying fashion" or " i'm a stylist and a blogger" . 😒 i had a friend that draw amazing but once he new pattern making and sew his drawing turn realistic and wearable . so that's when i really saw the big reason. Reply yamila sterrenburg says: July 10, 2019 at 4:30 pm I’m about to start a fashion design study in the Netherlands and I was looking for a youtuber like you to help me prepare for the things that I’m about to learn.
