I love reading Pantone's Color Trend reports for the Spring and Fall fashions. The 2008 Spring report has been out for a while, but now is when my mind turns toward the season.
Trends from the Designing Divas Blog:
*Blackened Metals - designing with chain is still going strong
*Textures - whether hammered metal, fibers or facets, textures are big.
*Charms - vintage inspired, birds, floral
Color Trends ·
Muted pastels of pink, green, yellow, and blue
Light gray and light coffee neutrals
Jewel-tone violet and yellow-green
And this is just me, but I'm seeing a lot of Art Nouveau influenced beads and jewelry.
