Design Inspiration

I am itching to start the next collection although this is NOT the right time. I am also trying to finish some interview questions from a Japanese fashion website. I used to ramble on a bit more about my thoughts on design then I have recently. Since I'm lazy I will post some of my answers here. Answering these questions make me realize I am very much of an 'unplanned' type of person. It seems I purposely not think about how to go about things. I just let things happen and follow my first instinct and reaction and see where they lead me. I used to not be like this. Probably as I get older I find that I don't need to control things or have controlled situations anymore. It does feel freer and I feel good about being truer to myself.

Here is a part of the interview that relates to spontaneity. The question is 'What is your greatest inspiration when you design'.

My inspiration come from the materials I happen to use. The materials I use is what I happen to see and fall in love with. It’s all very unplanned and I have no idea where the next collection will be until it hits me. I know this is probably not the way most designers work but I love working this way. I have complete faith that it will be good in the way that I will love it. The suspense and surprise of the future is what feeds me.
