With the deadline looming for our Fall/Winter 2014 photo shoot, we are all sneaking in knitting whenever we can. To keep up my physical and creative energy – and to keep from going crazy – I’ve been consuming copious amounts of coffee, tea, chocolate and good music. I can’t remember how exactly, but sometime during my design process for this upcoming season, I stumbled upon the music of Joni Mitchell. I was hooked from the first song. Of course, I recognized a few but I had never given her music the attention it deserved. Her music is timeless and feels just as relevant today as it was when she first performed. Both her beautiful songs and fabulous sense of style, helped inspire a collection of garments and accessories that I am so excited to see come together.
I think River might be my favorite song right now. It’s so sad, but I can’t help but be captured by its lyrics.
It’s funny how music can stir up such strong emotions and inspire.
What music inspires you?
