Seaside Trends, CHIARIstyle

Creative notes from the sea.


Story and Mood boards get the conversation started with manufacturers, designers, sales teams and retailers. Taking a week to slow down the design process is something every designer should master. So many ideas come into play with the brain in relax mode. Fashion has the ability to create new from so many sources. Last weeks beach vacation has inspired new mood boards for the 2019/2020 trend season. If you are looking for trend in all the fun places, stay tuned.

Morning Walk. The tide pools are showing off and the sea, well it is inspiring, calming and just beautiful. No one is up so we have the sea all to ourselves. Yummy.

Glitter This

Create your own patterns from nature. The camera takes the shot. Close up, this is a rock filled with life from the tide pools at the beach. When the sun hits, the tiny creatures have a glittery look. Reworking this photo for a glittery sea effect for our storyboard on Midnight Glitter.

Fashion is...taking time off to recharge, reflect, create.
