By now we’re all familiar with the moodboard concept. Not only are these collages lovely to look at but also a vital component of the design process for everyone from interior decorators and fashion designers to stylists, trend forecasters, fashion and homeware buyers, costume-, film- and set designers, make-up and hair artists, wedding and function planners and myriad others in the creative industries. They’re also super helpful if you’re trying to visualise a look or colour scheme for something a little closer to home: your new bedroom decor, a wedding, a kids’ play space, your home office… If you’re a moodboard addict and/or are in the creative and trend-dependent fields, then you will LOVE Pattern Curator. It’s the work of Kristine Go, a fashion industry stalwart based in the US who has been in the game for over twenty years. Her inspiring website of carefully curated, insightful and visually inspiring moodboards is the culmination of her arts and fashion degrees as well as a background as a ‘creative lead for major US apparel companies directing, designing and concepting original textile print, pattern & color stories’. Pattern Curator isn’t just a pretty face: Kristine also produces trend reports and analysis packages that can be bought and downloaded on her site. Not only passionate about design, Kristine is a also a certified yoga instructor and owns Go Yoga, where she creates the most desirable printed yoga pants. As moodboard aficionados, we’re officially impressed.
