For one week each September, the eyes of the fashion world are fixed on New York City as designers reveal their collections during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Though many in attendance are there to analyze the clothing, the looks shown will permeate countless industries during the upcoming season, and play a role in how planners and clients design their events and special occasions.
Color. Color. Color! Each year, spring signals rejuvenation and vibrancy, and this was abundantly on display during Fashion Week. Ranging from light touches to extremely bright ensembles, orange was definitely a hot choice. This eye-catching color can add a bit of excitement to the atmosphere of any event, especially against the other main color from Fashion Week – white. From linen choice to flower selection, orange adds a fun element to any décor, and the fashion industry is betting that it will be the color for spring.
Over the past few years, the old belief of the "white wedding dress" has been put to the test. Brides-to-be can now choose from a wide range of colors and shades that suit their desired look and express their personality. Drawing on different cultures and traditions, future brides can select everything from a pale blush to a show-stopping red. People are even wearing black wedding dresses! Designers are listening to their customers and have responded in full force. During Vera Wang’s recent runway show, dramatic pink dresses brightened up the runway. We suspect that this trend will be seen in all aspects of wedding planning as brides balance their playful side with tradition.
