Hello all! Today we are going to show you how you can use our last season gowns and keep them up-to-date with the latest trends. According to Pantone, for Autumn/Winter 2016/17, we delve into color that is “real” and “unreal”, absent and present and a blend of what is in between. We are polarized between colors that are simple, honest, unassuming, and stronger and more saturated tones that make a bold statement. An example of this is "Fade": color layered in watery pools announces itself, quietly, gradually, forming itself into mottled and ghostly hues.
For example we took our Jillian from our Spring collection for 2016 and left her original diamond white coloring behind and replaced it with a fade of modern-day nude shades. We started her off with fleshy pinks, worked our way to an ombre of yellow ochre and dark browns, then finally finished her off with a burnt umbre. What do you think of this new design? Is this something you would wear on your big day?
Our second up-and-coming trend for Fall/Winter 2016/17 is, "Discover". This is an array of the natural and artificial; Slick and rough, heavy and light elements together, darkened color steps. Here we took Skyla and again did an ombre on the gown, using hues of florescent blues and greens, beginning with the lightest color and ending with the darkest. Remember, when you partner with us at Lu Raquel, we allow you to order your gown in any color of the rainbow!
The third color scheme Pantone predicts seeing later this year: "Proclaim" - Both synthetic and natural sit beside one another, forming new fusions to create a hyper natural atmosphere. This consists of contradictions... oddly strange and unusual, dual sided effects, lots of earth tones in this style like doeskin brown and sunrise oranges. We are loving our Tiffany in this scheme.
The last trend we are looking at today is called "Invisible". This is an array of colors that appear and disappear like an illusion. They are multi-layered, blurring, diluted colors with sheer finishes. What do you think of our Brynn designed this way? We are absolutely smitten! What color scheme was your favorite of the day?
