Rawrrr... so been swamped with hw like always =-=
This was a group assignment that I recently did with my friend. Our inspiration was tribes in Ethiopia Africa and to create a range for summer 2013. We worked on the clothes together in terms of designs and then I rendered and added details :3 (hence face painting)

I'm going to try not to sound brash or rude, but quite frankly I find this to be the problem with fashion these days. I'm not saying you have bad taste or anything, but I feel like all fashion is the same these days because people keep trying to stick to what is popular and trendy. I mean this is coming from somebody who takes strong influence from game design, and personally I find some of the outfits in games better looking than a lot of fashion designs I see now. There's nothing "cool" out there, it's all so froo froo and boring. I mean I would literally wear some of the outfits I see in video game concept art just because of how badass it looks, disregarding what's popular or acceptable to most people.

I'm not saying your designs are bad, but if there are any tips I could give I'd say you could try something outside of your normal stuff. I don't really know what to reference for you because I'm sure my sense of inspiration is different from yours, but all I'm saying is that fashion designs seriously need to change. I'm a boy and I'm sick of the only men's outfits being t-shirts and jeans. This is why I design some of my own stuff sometimes. I guess I'm just tired of seeing stuff in stores or on fashion shows that I know I could do better and I don't even care that much about fashion design unless it applies to a character of mine, it's like people have no sense of what looks cool, they all seem to follow some set of rules.

Lolol i know what you are saying but ummm these arent real clothes? Its just homework pieces and you follow a brief. At school they teach you about trends and wjat not and when you graduate you can decide what to do but for now its abt being innovative with stuff tahts already done lol

No I know but it just seems like nobody makes anything different, like truly different, not just changing something that's been done.

haha, oh wells. Just because you don't see it doesnt mean it doesnt get made~ most 'differnet' stuff gets rejected by buyers as in not consumers but business people who buy clothes to sell because they know wat the public buys. Designers have inventive and exciting stuff but it is perceived as impractical and rejected by buyers unless you go couture then anything gives. People know what is normal and although they like things that are... lets say different they won't buy it and if they do it is really in the minority

But it takes one person to set a new style and then it will become something people will buy. It's just that the businesses and companies don't take these risks even if they should, they just want money.

precisely. And as fashion designers just startig out / whatever there is hardly any capitol - we have to rely on these types to buy our stuff then we can have funds to create more extravagent pieces - which the public will never see in their everday shopping malls. You can find boutiques around they sell really quirky stuff but don't expect to find too exciting garments in normal shopping malls because it won't happen. Also never fail to realise setting a new style means taht it will become a style that everyone will like and buy and that means other brands will do the same thing so eventually it will again become something that is normal etc because it has been overdone. Everything was a once a 'new style'

Well I've looked all around and I can't find very interesting stuff anywhere really. I mean I can't even find the boots I want because it seems as if nobody makes them.
