Pantone's Color Trend Report: Top 12 Color Palettes For SS 2018

New York Fashion week has come and gone, while London, Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks are strongly lining up. As an emerging jewelry designer, studying trends and fashion analysis each season from the Pantone Color Institute and WWD have been a part of my designing process. That doesn't mean I necessary apply those color informations to my creation. I think it's helpful to understand the essence of colors and elements that will be involved and reflected into apparel and interior industries.

Fashion is more than just a beauty in one aspect. It evokes relations of different people in both the same and different industries. Recently fashion has become not just a form of individual self-expression but also a global communication celebrating diversity in terms of shape, background, age, and gender. Vogue's Editor in Chef, Anna Wintour shared her insightful information about the recent fashion shows and the colors in the collections: stating that designers intend to show more unexpected and bright colors because those fun colors are the symbols of joy and rule-breaking. While Leatrice Eiseman, Exclusive Director of the Pantone Color Institute recognized the more appreciation and embrace of colors among consumers. Consumers are expressing a desire to experiment with colors that give them more multi-dimensional hues to tell their fresh, optimal and confident stories.
