Keeping a strong focus in my design as a freelancer is one of many obstacles I face when deciding exactly what to sew. Having inspiration boards such as the ones I use on Polyvore.com help me with capturing the visions and inspirations that pop into my mind. Visualization is powerful and these “idea” boards are often times just the motivation I need to create and stay connected with my creative daydreams.
This site puts everything I could possibly imagine in fashion and design right at my fingertips! It also provides a link, price points and designer information helping me to keep my own original design pricing as a custom designer in line with demand. If you start a Polyvore account after reading this post, I should warn you that it is the equivalent to window shopping – ADDICTIVE! So have a blast creating your boards and at least you know of a seamstress who is willing to sew up a few pieces to your liking!
