Where do your strengths lie when it comes to fashion and creativity? Do you know how to spark your own creativity and find what works well for you? Many times, creative people find that they are inspired by various things. What those things are sometimes all depends on what the person likes, what they’re accustomed to being around and even the things that DON’T appeal to them.
Many designers use creativity sparks when they work so as to help them make their pieces all genuine and as original as possible. This also holds true for anybody who has an interest in creative things. That creativity can be in designing, structuring, building something or in the smallest details in all of it.
Think about how you feel when you’re working and you get a rush of creative energy. What was it around you that made you feel that way? Whether it was a picture, a person or music, try to have that same thing around you each time you need to fuel some creativity. Over time, you’ll find yourself reaching for that creative help when you need to produce something great.
If you require a catalyst for your creativity, then by all means use it! Don’t apologize that you have to use something, and never feel like you’re using a symbolic "crutch" just because you have to use something. The best and often most famous designers are those who will say that they are sparked when a particular event happens or when their circumstances are ideal, for them.
Creativity is such a conditional thing, that it’s hard to say what will and even what won’t work for someone. The best approach is to find the things that spark your own creativity, use those things as often as you can and take those results for what they’re worth.
