Brighten Up Spring Events With Help From Pantone

Spring is right around the corner. Consult Pantone’s Spring 2015 Fashion Color Report when designing upcoming events.

It’s time to shake off the chill of winter and leap into spring! The Pantone Institute of Color released its Fashion Color Report Spring 2015, which gives designers of all types direction on color trends for the upcoming season.

Marsala, the Pantone Color of the Year for 2015, is the foundation for the spring/summer 2015 palette. However, the Fashion Color Report offers nine other colors to complete the spring spectrum.

“This season there is a move toward the cooler and softer side of the color spectrum,” the spring report states. The colors take a cue from nature, it says, and include “an eclectic, ethereal mix of understated brights, pale pastels and nature-like neutrals.”
