I have been meaning to do this post for a while now. This editorial shoot dates back to the spring of this year when Sara Gheydy had just finished her final pieces for Blanche Macdonald’s Spring 2015 graduate show. I am so glad I got to be a part of her amazing journey and see her designs flourish from the initial sketches to the final garments. Here is a little bit about Sara’s ideas behind the creative process in her own words.
“My inspiration came from the Middle East, with a focus on Iran. In the south of Iran, they use Mongolian Lamb’s wool in clothing and hats. I centered my collection around this material, imagining and playing with design elements to highlight the wool during my time sketching. I am attracted to fabric; I always buy my fabric first, and my process is then inspired by the chosen material. ”
