Hi Team! Just a few snippets & scraps for you today.
Carta Bella Reveals Traditions & Winter Fun
This week, Carta Bella revealed two new collections:
Pantone Reveals Spring 2013 Color Forecast
What colors does Pantone predict will be most fashionable this coming spring? Check ’em out ….
You can read more about the interpretations of these colors — what they ‘mean’ via the Pantone press release here. For example, Pantone says this about the women’s fashion color palette for spring:
“This season, designers overwhelmingly address consumers’ desire for self-expression, balance and the need to re-energize. The color direction for spring builds upon these compelling needs with a palette that mixes dynamic brights with novel neutrals to create a harmonious balance. This allows for unique combinations that offer practicality and versatility, but at the same time, demand attention and earn an appreciative glance.”
Whatever that means, LOL!
Design Team Updates
The design team landscape was overall pretty quiet this week. Bella Blvd’s design team call closed so we’ll anxiously be awaiting that announcement. Helmar announced its new Education Team and issued a call for 2 more members of that team. The Lily Bee and Jillibean Soup design team calls are both still open (deadlines of the 21st & 16th, respectively). And Paper Crafts Magazine publication call will close on September 14th. Find more about these updates and calls at DesignTeamCalls.com.
That’s it for today everyone! Have a great week!
