A new and stunning exploration of colour through the lens of contemporary fashion.
Color consultant and curator Lauren Wager, author of the best-selling Palette Perfect volumes, and colorist, designer and trend forecaster Sophia Naureen Ahmad, team up in this practical and inspirational compendium that examines how colors can be used and combined to achieve specific effects in fashion. We learn what each color means, where the color name comes from and color combinations that go well with each color, as well as different fabrics and decorative elements used in fashion in relation to color. Quick and easy explanations reveal what each color communicates, how it can be combined most effectively, what it is known for and its common uses in fashion. Vivid photographs bring the descriptions and explanations to life, allowing us to see with our own eyes how colors and fabrics can be combined with others to communicate a palette of different moods, emotions and states. A kind of color dictionary within the world of fashion, this practical guide filled with vital information and suggestive images will undoubtedly serve as a valuable source of inspiration for fashion designers, stylists, fashionistas and anyone else interested in fashion.
