Fall 2009 Fashion Color Forecast
I was so excited to see the colors predicted to be big this Fall, because they are some of my favorite colors to wear and the ones I am drawn to create with, too.
According to the Fashion Industry's Pantone Report, the "in" colors this Fall will be:
American Beauty, Purple Heart, Honey Yellow, Burnt Sienna, Iron, Creme Brulee, Nomad, Rapture Rose, Warm Olive and Majolica Blue.
The Pantone Report says American Beauty is a patriotic, wonderfully balanced, true red; that Purple Heart connotes a sense of refinement and sensuality; Iron is the new black; Warm Olive adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to fall; and Majolica Blue is a deep, mysterious teal blue with more vibrancy than the usual navy.
So, I got busy last night and made some pendants I hoped would compliment the new Fall colors nicely for our weekly PCAGOE Clay and Play Thursday. The pendants are all image transfers depicting a vintage William Morris fabric. The gemstones I used, particularly the gorgeous Tiger Jasper, a chameleon stone which literally goes with everything and adapts to almost any color palette; and these stunning, handmade, hollow fumed glass beads created by Aja of WanderingSpirit (yes, I know, more Aja beads, but I can't seem to get enough of them!).
I think I'm set for Fall now.
