Fashion boards A.K.A mood board/vision board/brand board or a fashion lookbook is a creative outlet for designers, boutique owners, or fashion students to showcase a new collection or a clothing line.
But it’s more than that.
Today brands use it to ideate products, influencers use it to put together their next smashing look, and photographers use it to see their vision come to life.
While a physical lookbook will always be a lovely idea, a digital one is quicker, more versatile, and easy to create and even share once it’s ready. You can also edit, remove, or completely re-do without any hassle whatsoever.
In this blog, we’ll show you how to make a Fashion lookbook using a free tool called Carrot and some great lookbook examples to get you started. Let’s dive in!
Lookbook examples to get you creating & curating
Your fashion lookbook doesn’t have to be boring and basic. A lookbook encapsulates the journey and the feel behind that outfit or clothing line you’ve worked so hard to put together. Let your journey reflect in your lookbook- experiment and try different styles to find what works the best for you.
Here are some Lookbook examples from our Carrot team:
1. My Neutral World
An ensemble of all things neutral, this is perhaps the easiest fashion lookbook to create. The style features models wearing the product against a minimalistic bare background, allowing us to focus on what’s important- the outfit.
2. Perfect in pastel
Was your look inspired by a photo or a color that you just can’t get over? Add that to your lookbook amongst the outfits you picked to complete it.
3. Dreaming in Pink
Nature will always be a muse to designers and poets alike. If your fashion lookbook is inspired by a particular place or a moment, add that to your collection to make it memorable.
Don’t stop at just photos. Add quotes, fabric cutouts, textures, paintings, basically anything that inspires you to create and curate.
