Day 159: Cath Kidston

Here is a dress I saw today at the Bath Fashion Museum and next to it is a Cath Kidston iphone case. Is it just me or are they really similar?

When I saw it the first thing I thought was, 'wow, so that's where Cath got her ideas from.' It got me think about how ideas are recycled, revamped and repackaged. I mean, both of these patterns could be used for wallpaper too. And, if you think about it, they are all just copying the flower in the field!

Who starts ideas? Does it matter?

I think what counts is how YOU put your mark on it. Whether it's a pattern you create, a song you sing or a canvas you paint. YOU are what makes it.

Use what you know, what came before and make it your own...just like Cath Kidston.
