This little 'mini-series' was fun...the most interesting thing was reading about each of these female designers. In spite of how different they felt about their work, their inspiration, or fashion in general, their words definitely struck a chord with me. Creativity is necessary and inspiration comes from everywhere. Whether or not we're aware of it, what we do and how we do it is influenced by everything and everyone around us, by experiences, upbringing, opportunities and the environment to which we have been exposed. It's also interesting to see how some felt that creativity is political and others not, but that the greatest influence on each of them is the fact that they are women.
