Rita Saardi

"Inspiration is a complicated thing... Especially when you can't afford your Imagination...
That's why I always work on my collection one or two month before the deadline otherwise I would get too depressed knowing that I would want to take my ideas further then the limitations of my sewing skills and what I can afford to buy in material... this is frustrating, people think that fashion designers are always in a creative mood and that life is a walk on roses, it's not, I have so many ideas and so litle time to work on things add to that my limitations in sewing and draping plus my poor economy and you have what I call " La mort de l'inspiration" the death of inspiration...
For all of you BAD designers out there with time, money and a staff you should be ashamed of what you're doing to the lovely fabrics you can afford and the priceless workmanship your money can allow you to abuse of...

For my Between Heaven and Earth collection I maneged to keep the inspiration alive even though the deadline and the economy was eating me up alive... After Christmas I am supposed to create a new collection for my press agent... I hope I'll be able to afford it and that I can finish it on time...

I am sick and tiered of working under those circumstanses, creating is supposed to be fun... But I would rather die then give upLinkp cause far to many untalented designers are abusing of the catwalk and it would be ashame to let them rule in peace...

I'm bringing poetry back.... count on that..."

A qoute from a Very special person and of that, Designer. You can follow her process HERE. A designer I Highly respect. As a person with values but too one with the Most talent to go with it. She is one of those.....one of those untouchable.

If you like my blog, you'll Love hers, which is a diary of a creative process.

w/ love
