Flora and Fauna

Nature has always been a huge source of inspiration for me when designing clothing, patterns, or accessories. But you don't have to be a designer or a seamstress to incorporate nature's inspiration into your wardrobe. 

Below are pictures of two beautiful flowers that I found here in Australia. The soft butter yellow is pure perfection as it melts into the white. Similar to what Annelien is wearing on the left: soft yellow and white top, complimented by white linen shorts, and the entire outfit reflects the cool casual feel of summer. 

Here is another example of how colors can inspire your outfit. Take a look at the Hibiscus below. The pink just pops off the bright green and kelly green background.

You can also see here how the pink and green combination on this dress are extremely flirty and fun!

 I've also learned that color is not the only inspiration that nature's beauty holds. Take a look at the structure of the flower below. 

Similar to the felt flower on the pillow I designed.

Isn't it just amazing how much nature has to offer? The colors and intricacy of the designs are just breath taking! Next time your out for a walk, take a look around and see what inspires you!
