5 Fashion Activities To Do From Home During The Pandemic
We have been in our homes for more than five months. While the routine may have gotten hard to deal with, this has given us enough time to sit back and think about what we want to do in the post-pandemic world. It has also allowed us to learn new skills to keep ourselves occupied in all the right ways.
The only medium which is flourishing now is the digital and virtual world. It seems much easier now to start an online business or learn new things from the internet to enhance our skills. This is the best time to keep ourselves productive and start off with that genius business plan you’ve already had but couldn’t commit to due to lack of time.
For all the fashion enthusiasts at home wondering how to get started, we have got you covered with five fashion activities which you can do during the pandemic.
Start A Fashion Website/Blog
Have you always wanted to step into the digital blogging game but never had the time to sit and design your site? Well, this is the right time to turn the idea into reality. A website/blog can help you document all your creative processes.
Websites like Wix have Artificial Design Intelligence that can automatically design your website based on your preferences and also offer a “drag and design” option for you to do content placements however you please.
Kick-Start Designing For Your Future Brand
If you are fresh out of design school or have always wanted to start your own label then you can utilise this time to design to your heart’s content. Sketch your ideas and prepare mood boards for your upcoming collections. Many certified international colleges are offering fashion illustration courses which can help you get a better understanding of design aesthetics and its importance in illustration.
One such option is the Fashion Illustration (Online Short Course) at London College Of Fashion.
Plan Home Shoots For Instagram
Getting pictures for Instagram has been a task since we cannot step outside as often as we did earlier. But we got some cool tips for that! You can easily turn your home into a DIY photo studio with just a few simple things like a phone/tripod stand, a ring light and a background. Below is a simple course on how you can form your own studio space with the right equipment and at a pocket-friendly budget.
Virtual Styling Collaborations
If you are a stylist or aspire to be one and are missing outdoor shoots then virtual styling collaborations is the key right now. You can collaborate with new upcoming models or even friends and style them with stuff from their closet. You can capture pictures yourself via Facetime or video call as well as ask them to utilise their own spaces as a shoot location. Apart from taking up a short styling course for starters, knowing the basics of photography is an important skill too. Below are some short courses that can be useful tools.
Start A Virtual Thrift Store
Thrifting is all the rage right now. With the ongoing situation, consumers are slowly shifting to more ethical and mindful choices which includes buying second-hand vintage garments which have more value, hence it is an accurate time to start a thrift store business which can easily be done on online social platforms. Below is a course that will serve the purpose to get the learning going to launch your own e-commerce business.
