I've noticed a few ladies using photos as inspirations to create a clothing collection. I really liked this idea and did some googling. I've come across
Color Hunter which allows you to upload a photo or add an image url and it generates a colour palette based on the photo.
This is actually rather addictive and I can imagine amazing clothing collections based on this principle. I'm thinking of using this for the next SWAP (Sewing with a Plan) contest over at SG.
These are a few from the site that I liked.
Have some fun and play around, you might be inspired!!!!
