- Pantone Inspiration
For the Pantone challenge I search the spring runway shows and was inspired by this outfit. I read the Pantone Fashion Color Report for Spring 2012 and here is how they describe the colors.
Pantone Tangerine Tango 17-1463 An enticing juicy orange, is a vivacious and appealing refresher to enliven anyone’s outlook this spring. Pantone Sodalite Blue 19-3953 A classic maritime hue, brings order and calmness to mind. Like an anchor to a ship, this dependable shade works with every color in the palette.
We did the some pictures on a white background so it would feel like a runway show. These colors make you feel energized, all you want to do is twirl and pose and then we headed out to spend the day at the New York Botanical Garden to find bold Spring flowers.
