The Basic of Fashion Trend Prediction

Have you ever wondered who decides the fashion trend of the coming season and year?
In order to define new fashion, there is one factor that leads the fashion concept to the world, that is the Color.  We can always find a prevailing color in every season which all the fashion world – be it clothing, makeup, nail art etc., just follows it without hesitation.

So behold, the decision maker of the color is revealed – you must have heard – the Pantone Color Institute.
Pantone is a world renowned brand selling “colors” – color formation, color cards, palette, etc.  Each year, they pick a color as the “Color of the Year”, providing the trend forecast in fashion and interior design.

I have seen countless articles which try to explain where the source of fashion trends come from, but none of them seems to know about the color trend. Many fashion designers go to Pantone for the new trending color idea, then take it back to develop in their own unique designs.  No witchcraft secret here.

Now the mystery is solved, the Color that sparks all the creativity industry has its advisory board. If you want to be on top of the fashion trend, the way is to follow the Pantone Trend Forecasting & Color of the Year which all the top notch designers are looking at, then start your creativity works.

The “Color of the Year 2015” goes to Marsala 

The impactful, full-bodied qualities of Marsala make for an elegant, grounded statement color when used on its own or as a strong accent to many other colors.    – excerpt from “Introducing Marsala” by Pantone.
