Committee helps choose color trends for upcoming seasons
on Thursday,February 10,2011 19:02
Fashion week in New York City is full of colors that set the tone for the upcoming spring and fall seasons. However, industry experts say it is not just handful of individuals who come up with the trends for the future.
Designers coordinate more than most people think, according to NPR. Twice a year before models hit the runway, a committee of 10 secret designers meet in Europe to discuss potential color ideas for the new season. Panton, a New Jersey-based company, bases its business entirely on color. They invite these anonymous trend setters to the event every year.
"I have people who work in the car business, who work with big store groups," David Shah, meeting organizer, told the news source. "I can't tell you the names. They're involved with everything from furniture through to clothing and knitwear."
Although Pantone faces competition as a color technology company, its 1,925 unique shades separate it from the rest. The ability to set trends encourages thousands of people to embark on careers in the fashion industry every year.
Individuals with a postsecondary degree might increase their chances of finding a job in the industry, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
