You have not heard from me for a while because I have been VERY busy creating an On-Line course that will be ready to go in a few weeks. I’ve done extensive research and could not find anything that I would consider enough. As you will know if you are following me already I have done a few YouTubes on how to draw a Derby shoe. I have now created a course that will take you through the process at a good pace with templates and guidelines. The course is available at The Fashion Student’s Hub
I always do non-destructive edits in Photoshop so that I can adjust all images until I am happy with my final image. I will then save the original version and I will also save the image as a JPEG file. I would suggest you download a quality image with some good contrast to follow along with my video
“Select and Mask is a great way to edit your selection professionally!”
Finding good images to create mood boards is very difficult. I think it is so important to understand image size and the final output of the mood board first. Will your mood board be electronic? Will you be putting it on a Pinterest page? Are you going to use your Mood board for a printed presentation? In this blog I will discuss how and where to look for good images.

What is a mood board? Why do we create them? What are the design principles we use when creating a mood board?
Once you have finished the mood board reflect on the following questions:
- Have I created an easy reference tool to use when developing my range?
- Have I reflected on the season and target customer?
- Have I finalised my colour palette?
- Have I used the most important images?
- Have I summarised the theme?
