Imagination is my best friend. It follows me whenever, wherever, and it allows me to wander inside my own mind. Imagination might be most of designers' best friend, because quoting from an anon "designers draw and see an object that doesn't exist". Well, objects. Not only fashion designers, but any people who work within the art industry. Take an example, an architect.
The architect who built Sydney's Opera House was inspired by an orange to build such an iconic building. An orange! And maybe when I was still a kid I thought to myself "why the hell this building is so special?", but now I was just awe-struck with the non-symmetrical facade. Much like the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, this building is not the same when you see it in different point of views, but of course, less Postmodern than the Gehry's building.
And there are pictures, to see what I mean :)

You see, imagination can be taken from anywhere. Where your mind travels, you wouldn't know, but when it reaches the destination it wants to, pour it down. Maybe something in between can light you up when you're stuck. Imagination doesn't need to be searched from the deep valleys or the highs of the skies. They come from small things. Therefore, feel grateful for whatever it is that keeps your brain work and alive. But don't push yourself to think of something you can't think. Maybe you need time, maybe you need refreshments. You don't know when the idea just strike you and leave you speechless by the way your brain works yourself ;) well, who knows?
Keep being inspired, people!
