I love going into the minds of some genious designers; at least seeing from where they got their inspiration. It was the first season of Project Runway and I remember Jay had trouble in one of the episodes and just when he was about to lose hope, he looked up and saw the Chrysler Building – boom! – the winner look. Again, in season 2; they gave the designers Polaroid cameras and wanted them to take photos of the city – anything literally – and create a look inspired from that photo. The winner of that episode was Daniel Vosovic with his orchid dress but my favourite was without a doubt a gorgeous gown inspired by the photo of a dirty water leaking from the pavements. I appreciate fashion (or art in general) when the galvaniser is the most unexpected.

From solar system to cracked plasters, Carrie Bradshaw to Big Bird and Bambi, policeman vests to Cubism, chinas and Arabic letters; click through to see all the weird objects, phenomenons and sights that inspired the designers for F/W 13-14 season.
