Creating new Inspiration with method
This post is in collaboration with method.
Where there is fashion illustration, there is going to be fashion inspiration. Keeping all of the special pieces in my wardrobe in inspiring condition to use again and again for projects takes the right product. That’s why I teamed up with my friends at method, to try out their 4x Laundry detergent and fabric softener on the collection from my very own closet.
Whether I am out photographing the world around me for reference imagery, or shooting stylish pieces from my own closet for a blogpost, I have to make sure I am comfortable wherever I am. With method’s 4x Detergent and gentle fabric softener, I’ve found I rarely have to think about my level of comfort when in action. Sitting for hours on end sketching, painting and putting together my illustration work is the last place I should be worried about feeling uncomfortable. I haven’t given it a second thought since methods products not only keep my outfits soft and in like new condition, but they always smell amazing, like fresh ginger and ripe sliced mango too.
If I ever have a paint spill, or accidentally dip my sleeve, I am able to #FearNoMess becuase method’s 4x Laundry Detergent strikes at the effected spots that need cleaning, and keeps the rest of my outfits in like new condition. Even my husband has been appreciating the stain and dirt fighting power of methods detergent, since he constantly gets his pants dirty from kneeling to get the perfect shot while we are on location. All of his pieces in his wardrobe are matching mine in condition, and are making our closet smell fantastic.
It has been pretty inspiring using this new product in my weekly chores, because I know at the end of any load of laundry, I get to jump into a soft, warm, comfy outfit, sit down and create something beautiful just for me. One of the best parts of method as a business is they’re people friendly; meaning all method products are biodegradable, vegan, gluten free, made from recycled materials and are 100% recyclable. It’s hard not to feel good about that, since giving back to my community and inspiring others is so important to me as a freelance artist. Whether cleaning up clothes after a painting mishap, or giving our clothes that cozy feeling and fresh scent, I know I’ll be using method’s fabric softener and detergents from now on.
