Throughout February I will be sharing my museum inspirations and my subsequent fashion related creative output.
I will be:
- Visiting each museum
- Taking photos of items which inspire me
- Posting a selection of them on this blog
- Selecting one particular item which could inspire a garment or outfit
- Creating some of these outfits based on specific inspiration
Here we go!..............
Sunday 1st February Pergamon Museum & Bode Museum
1. Inspiration from the Pergamon Museum
I chose this textured stone wall as my Pergamon inspiration. Perhaps I will use the technique of quilting to achieve similar shapes in a skirt.
Quilting does seem to be one of the "in things" at the moment. Here are some examples of quilted garments.

2. Inspiration from the Bode Museum
Sculpture is not exactly my favourite type of art, especially if it is teamed with religious art. For this reason the Bode museum was not exuding with inspiration for me. But of course there were some nice pieces throughout the collection.
For the Bode Museum I chose this painting by Giovanni Domenico Ticpolo (1754) with it's pinks, yellows, whites and greys.

Next museum stop is the Kunstgewerbe Museum (Museum of Decorative Arts) which currently exhibits a history of fashion.
GET INSPIRED! and explore your neighbourhood.
