FASHION COLOR FORECAST – SPRING/SUMMER 2016

Welcome to another installment of blog posts by Bhavy-J Designs! This time around we take a look at the fashion color forecast for spring/summer 2016.  Even though next spring is months away, designers are already focused on showcasing next season’s fashion trends.  The color gurus (experts in fashion, interior design, textiles, and graphic design, to name a few) have convened and along with the Pantone Color Institute, have come up with the seasonal color forecast.  These colors were prominently seen in designers’ works in New York, London, Milan, and Paris Fashion weeks which just wrapped up.

This year’s palette is a very toned down color palette.  There are many soft colors that remind of us nature.  The colors also invoke a sense of calmness and take us away from the hustle and bustle of the digital world. Below is a more detailed look at some of the colors in particular:
