Not sure what to say about that, i don't find my stuff that original. One thing though, it pays to visit and revisit an idea several times and to not stop at the first couple variations. Also, i don't know what your influences are, but it never hurts to go looking in as many places as you can. And some good research can also do wonders. I've been looking up historical dress for work and you know, there's some funky stuff in there if you start digging.
Damn I really love this latest update! How do you generate such good compositions and ideas? All your designs are also really fresh looking...do you have a general process or way of coming up with it? Do you study anything in particular?
