Spring/Summer Trend Report 2017 April 13 2017

The influence of colour trends is far encompassing. Generally we look to Europe as an indicator of trend forecasting, with the fashion industry being the vanguard; but lately we have been seeing fashion-forward colours pop up in home furnishings, automobiles and cosmetics.


Global interest in ecology has given rise to green and blue as predominating tones in home decor and fashion. A deep need to feel secure and the embracing of femininity have found their expression in soft pinks and blues.  


Organic fabrics with developed textural qualities play tribute to nature and our desire for comfort.  Happy colourful motifs signify the need to escape from our complex social and political environment and give a sense of whimsy.


Add a bold shot of colour to show your own personality and express your present mindset.
