Trending Fall Colors
Did you ever wonder who decides what the popular colors are going to be in the coming season? Well, the fashion industry is definitely the primary influence. However, what they are putting out is drawn from and re-interpreted by other industries. Pantone is the company that graphics and print professionals pay attention to. Before each season, they put out a report about what is coming out of the fashion industry and offer specific color palettes based on their finds. It is a fantastic short cut for artists wondering what colors to work in for adornment and home decor items to sell online and at shows in the coming season.
Here, we have the Fall report. On the report page, you will see colors broken down by men and women’s fashions. Read the descriptions in the report as well as take in the colors. The descriptions are just as tasty as the palettes and speak to their origins in the fashion industry.
