Design Notes

Freelance has its virtues! As a designer working both full-time and as a freelancer, I have found that the freelance process creates a well-rounded focus on all things fashion. There is a connection that every category has, research. Fashion is best when looking back is just as crucial as trending forward. As a freelancer, we tend to overwhelm with newness when it may not be what’s needed. Sometimes it is structure. Taking a look at a brands history to find what works and what failed is important when working in a freelance position. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and set timelines but most important be on time, and never make a promise you can’t keep. I once ran a department where the owner loved freelance designers; they came and went like water flowing through the design room. “Be nice.” He would always say to me, the full-time design team would get all caught up in the danger of another designer walking on their turf, but I understood because I was one of those freelance designers, but that’s another story.

Fashion has a history.

The Basic Box is moving into the Trend Shop

What is the Basic Box?

Always love new ways to trend out a story, introducing the Basic Box. Every company has basics that dominate the design transition for change. At CHIARIsytyle our basics usually start the trend before moving into new style concepts. The Basic Box will showcase the basic silhouette for a quick look at trends that are showing up in the sphere of fashion. The Basic Box storyboards will work with The Dressing Room and our new space the Window Box which is the fun side of creating a floor space that can work with all of the accessories that go with trending intimates, moving into the 2019/2020 trend season.  22 Tees have been re-worked and will hit the shop this month; the tees are part of the Limited Edition WorkBooks. Fashion is trending in so many directions; intimates are transitioning from sleep to street, street to the gym.  As a designer, creative director, CAD artist, lover of all things fashion, enjoy the new additions to the site. Fashion is…change.

Trending Storyboards

Watercolor prints are in the mood for storyboards. Creating new concepts starts with, well a concept. Story and mood boards get the conversation started for new creative ideas. Intimates are in transition; excitement is held back with repetition of the same old thing in a different color. As an active consumer of the trend, new concepts sometimes need confirmation, which makes creating concepts with proven bodies a part of the design style for mood boards. Once the storyline has merit, then the bodies can translate concepts that incorporate silhouettes that can trend into the future. If you are looking for new trend concepts, we have a lot to offer with 100% original content. No magazine pulls of someone else's stuff.  All illustrations, CADS, story and mood boards take you somewhere. If you find something you like click contact and we will send you a quick pdf overview. STYLENOTES  are sent once a month. Novembers notes will include 22 tees WorkBook concept that is going into the shop. The tees were to preview in September but some of the tees sold before shop date. New designs are in work and will be ready for send-out end of the month. Product development is key to new ideas that translate into sales. Looking for trend in all the fun places?
