Fashion Inspiration: A Conversation With Andrea Sisson


There are many designers and artists in the world who create amazing works of art, but they are rarely ever functional. Andrea Sisson is the answer to that problem. Entering her fifth year at the University of Cincinnati's DAAP program, Andrea is studying Fashion Design that fuses both creativity and functionality for the individual. Her Violin Suit, for example, was designed specifically for a violinist's needs emotionally, functionally and physically, and has garnered a good deal of attention.

Fashion Inspiration: To the Moon!

This year and last year have seemed to be all about getting as vertically high as possible in fashion. For fashion inspiration today, I have some images of incredible and innovative shoes that I like to refer to as "moon shoes." They can help get you closer to a quasar or even to a black hole. And a fashion collection from Setareh Mohtarez of Antwerp's Royal Academy of Fine Arts third year class. The collection is entitled "Brightness Dawn" and is truly out of this world. Sit back and please enjoy!

Fashion Inspiration: The Uniform Project

Tired or bored with what’s in your closet? Look no further and seek advice from Sheena Matheiken and designer Eliza Starbuck. If you haven’t heard of it already, The Uniform Project is an effort that started in May 2009 for Sheena to wear one dress for one year in 365 reinvented ways. Sheena wears seven identical black cotton dresses, which were designed by Eliza Starbuck, for each day of the week. She uses vintage, handmade or donated accessories to reinvent her outfits and documents said outfits on her blog each day. Sheena also gladly accepts any donated accessories or personal designs, as well as any collaborative or conceptual ideas for the project.

Fashion Inspiration: Crystal City

As a young girl, I had a deep fascination with crystals, rocks and stones. So much to the point that I had quite the rock collection (I know Maija did too). I recall some of my favorites from my rock collection being amethyst, desert rose and fools gold. I think I may have even found a fossilized dinosaur tooth once, however this is still yet to be proven. It wasn't just the colorful and sparkly features that attracted me to these small treasures. As I ran my hands along the buckets filled with smooth jade, tigers eye and other crystals, I realized that I loved them so much because, like snowflakes, they are all so different even if they are the same.
