DIY Street Style Inspiration

1

We love looking at street style photographs for DIY inspiration. M&J’s Garment District location allows us to see many creative individuals on a daily basis. Although many people working in and around the garment district may not be renowned designers they are often the inspiration for many runway designs. Fashion styling is always open for interpretation. We love looking at street style for inspiration.

Editorial Prints Featuring Chains

Chains can be used in many forms especially in editorial prints. Chains can be considered glamorous, punk, gangster, or even precious based on how they are styled. Each of the following editorials have used chains in a series of ways yet one thing remain the same they are all created from similar metals. Similar to chains, people are born the same but shaped differently based on their culture, or upbringing. Fashion editorials may be selling clothes but they have can be considered an art form as well. Next time you pick up one of your favorite magazines try and examine the meaning or relevance of the glossy editorial. You may be surprised what you come across.

Many designers are inspired by their surroundings. We’re inspired by art, fashion and our customers. Many people come into the store for different reasons. One piece of trim may be used differently by each person that comes in.  It’s fascinating to hear everyone’s visions and truly inspiring in itself. We hope we can inspire you as much as you inspire us.

Floral Editorial Inspiration

Flowers come in many shapes and sizes. Even though everyone has a flower preference, most would agree on their beauty. When creating an  arrangement you are greeted with something unexpected; a sophisticated rose may look great next to a playful sunflower or an adorable daffodil. Likewise these odd pairings work well in fashion. Often taking a risk and combining two unique prints will create something better than you had anticipated. The following floral editorials prove that floral prints are no longer restricted to feminine detailing.
