It's in my Nature.

As a fashion student I often wonder where designers draw their colour inspirations from. In most cases, the best way to get your creative juices flowing and your brain ticking is by putting together a mood board.

Long gone are the days where I actually used to enjoy sitting down with a pair of scissors and  glue together things that inspired me. I much rather utilize the computer skills I have and whip something up that avoids me having to bust out the PVC.

You may have picked up on the fact that I rather enjoy taking pictures of nature, so I thought this time I would  put together a visual comparison of the natural colours around us versus the consistent colour trends we are seeing on the streets. 

Whilst your scrolling through, don't forget to keep scrolling down to my NATIO GIVEAWAY and enter! 

All nature photography was taken by yours truley, all other fashion images were sourced from various blogs and tumblrs.
