People have asked me if I read any fashion magazines. I do have subscriptions to several magazines. But lately, I have been avoiding them. I don’t want to subconsciously mimic some clothing that I have seen on fashion pages while designing for next season. Several of my teachers often advised us not to look at fashion magazines. I tend to go for home interior, architecture magazines or National Geographic. I have been addicted to the French Marie Claire Maison since I was a teenager. I love the clean modern interior mixed with global influence – interesting textures and colours. The French and the English magazines do that so well. They are not afraid of mixing different design influence and periods in their living space. Bravo to the risk takers out there.
All images are from French Marie Claire Maison. Will post more pics of April issue soon.
