Hi everyone, it’s Emily!
I’ve done a few videos on mood boards, and they seem to be consistently my most popular videos, so I thought I’d share my process for making a physical mood board. In this blog, I’m going to show you how I assemble a physical mood board utilizing colors, fabrics, textures, sketches, photographs, and magazine clippings, and then I will show you my sketching process using the board as inspiration.
I’m so excited to do this video, because I genuinely love assembling mood boards. It is definitely one of my favorite parts of the design process. I have so many ideas and inspirations that I want to pull from.
So, let’s get started!
I remember when I was in school for Fashion Merchandising, the first time we were instructed to make a mood board, I had way too many things stuck on my mood board. I sort of liked what I created but you have to keep in mind that a mood board serves a purpose. If it’s for yourself then go crazy, but if you are creating one professionally you will want to refine it. I’m sort of in between that because I work solo for my own brand. I might go a little crazy so stay tuned!
I usually start out pulling things that I like and then see what goes together - or doesn’t go together in some cases. That’s when things get really interesting. Now I’m going to take you with me as I search for my inspiration!
