Trend Research


Since I am using Despicable Me as my inspiration, I researched to see if there was any other designers who have used cartoons or children’s toys/characters as their inspiration. I came across Moschino who used Barbie in his Spring/Summer 2015 Ready-to-wear collection. He used the style of Barbie dolls to dress real life models.

Moschino's Fall 2014 Ready-to-wear collection was inspired by Sponge Bob, a children's cartoon. Moschino used the bright yellow colours with polka dot prints of the Sponge Bob image printed on garments.

For my collection I will be dedicated to silhouettes, shapes and colour. I will need to remember not to draw too much attention to the image of the cartoon like Moschino has.
