Todays task was to continue screen printing but unfortunately the jet was was broken so today I had to revisit my time table and swap my days over, so todays task now was to look into an alternative colour palette. As part of a design collection and as seen in design show rooms it is important to include alternative colour ways.
I knew I wanted to keep in with the same trend predication for A/W 18/19 so when researching in to WGSN I made sure that this was the place I was looking for. This was because I still wanted my colour palette to be relevant for the same time and that I hadn’t just chose a random colour palette, for a collection to be successful it has to work alongside trends. The chosen colour palette for my alternative colour ways is ‘The Thinker’ the colours will consist of pastel blue, deep red, greys and wood tones.
I also wanted to make sure that I chose a colour palette that would still work alongside my city theme and this colour palette does, the pastel colours giving it an evening/sunset vibe within the city. This makes a good alternative from my current palette as my current palette is a lot bold and brighter. Giving the client an alternative city interpretation if perhaps a bold colour palette is not for them.
Next will be to experiment with this colours in the dye baths to carry through to screen printing my designs on.
