Creative space is a concept embracing the mental, physical and emotional environments within which creativity operates. It can’t be given to you by a manager or spouse, it is something you must carve out and claim yourself.
Disciplining myself to remain in a state of creativity is one of the best commitments I’ve made. It clears my mind of anything that does not revolve around fresh ideas to apply to my portfolio, blog and Instagram page. Style blogging requires consistent and in-depth research. I refer to magazines, fashion and style blogs, fashion editorials, music videos and interviews for inspiration and informative purpose.
I am inspired by Vogue, hence my love for the FIERCE Anna Wintour who is nothing short of amazing. Her gift in identifying aspiring designers who are sure to become influential in the fashion industry is impeccable. Diane Von Furstenberg, who has shared a table with Mrs. Wintour while judging the CFDA/ Vogue Fashion Fund program, is a light of inspiration as well. If you love a wrap dress, thank this woman.
Many people may not know this, but I love to create concepts for fashion designs, photography and videography.

Planning the concept behind the shot above that embodies the Woman in Her Creative Space was so fun. Submitting yourself to a creative space is so important because it’s self expression. I genuinely enjoy the process of bringing my thoughts to life and watching it unfold is the best part.
I’ll never forget the video I watched of Grace Coddington where she was behind the scenes of a Vogue shoot. Seeing how she carried herself with so much grace (no pun intended) and confidence while enjoying the moment of thoroughly getting her job done on set was beyond impressive. At that time, she was the creative director for Vogue. That’s a HUGE position and she did that. There is so much passion that goes into being creative and it separates your mind from chaos or things that are totally out of our control. Your creative mind is what directs you towards your future so continue to be inspired and protect your creative space. ✨
