Fashion Journal A journal kept throughout the course of the semester. It features the latest trends and future forecasts. # 11 Designer Collection: Dries Van Noten Ready-To-Wear Spring 2013 Collection. I can only envision a store such as Bloomingdales carrying this designer’s work because it is high fashion very expensive pieces. I love this design because it is mixing textures as well as crossing boundaries with its design. I love the plaid shirt being chiffon with a ribbed tank underneath, these items you may see on men (minus the chiffon) with a textured flowered skirt. I would have never thought of pairing the two together, especially with these colors, but they turned out to be a genius idea, Great job Dries! #8 Global Trends: China Pale yellow, peach and mint are new to the Chinese market for spring/summer 2013. Purple, mocha and powder are warmer updates of existing shades. A softer range of red and sheer black fabric updates the classics, while bold stripes and snakeskin are exciting new prints.


The facades of Berlin's buildings are tinted in soft pastel colors, giving the streets of the city a warm and positive atmosphere, even on cold winter days.

France Subtle metallic and sheen appear on tinted pastels while mid-tones and aquatic effects feature in shades of blue and green. Contrast with textures from nature on warmed shades of amber, through to pink and rich red.
