We always find the process of design very interesting, therefore we wanted to share our inspiration for the Spring/Summer 2009 Omelle launch collection. Cherise & I are constantly collecting inspiration from all sorts of sources. We have piles of tear sheets, cupboards of material swatches and iphoto libraries overflowing with beautiful images and color palettes. We look at fashion, read about design, absorb ourselves in textiles, and look at elements outside of footwear such as graphic design and furniture. As the Omelle collection is getting ready to launch, here is a little insight as to how we organize the first steps of establishing direction before we begin our initial thumbnails and sketches.
