    My partner Karen Pearlstein and I have been doing color forecasting for over 25 years. We are always interested in how various studios and companies put their forecasts together to produce actionable results that manufacturers can apply to their business. We would be interested in how Mix Trends Spring Summer 2015 Forecast was derived.

    That’s an interesting question, George. In my search for color trends, I find little about the initial research and thinking behind the choices. I believe ideas are found in photography – Instagram photos can be one source – movies, global focus such as wars and happenings, technology (LED lights), vintage, recycling of fashion, art, etc.
