Finding Your Palette with Pantone’s Colors for Fall
The New York Fashion Week Color palette has so many colors that I use every day. It takes a while to find your own palette, your range of colors, whether for a home, fashion, or jewelry.
Pantone “provides a universal language of color that enables color-critical decisions through every stage of the workflow for brands and manufacturers”. It created color standards since 1963 through a proprietary numbering system, like you see in the picture below. You can click on the picture to see it larger.
The numbers at the top are part of the system. The names of the colors could be anything, from a darkest blue to the palest peach or bright yellow.
What you gravitate towards can help you decide what palette would work best for you. I have included colors that contrast and co-exist, or work well with each other. The Midnight and the Polar Night could work well with the light or darker colors depending on how you pair the pieces. Adding vibrant colors to a subtle classic can make a fashion or lifestyle statement.
You can see more of my palette at the Trunk Show this Saturday, where I will be showing off a few of my favorite pieces. During the show I will talk about my work and how I got started creating these pieces. Along the way, you will see how I put interesting colors together to make a cohesive piece, whether it is a kimono or a fabric bracelet like seen above.
The Trunk Show will be presented during the first hour of the ASG Sew Class. Join ASG to get into the class for free. I hope to “see” you there!
