Colour of The Year!

It's official! The colour guru's at Pantone have declared 'colour of the year' for 2012 is
Tangerine Tango
Great to see they have jumped on the Ginge train and know what's really hot or not in the world of colour!!

Ginge icon Taylor Tomasi Hill does the Tangerine Tango!

Just to explain, Pantone is the global numbering system used by designers such as graphic designers to classify the entire spectrum of colours into a numeric system followed with a descriptive name. (Same idea as how & why we classify hair colour!) Each year, they launch predictions into which colours will be on trend, which is then used by fashion, hair, furniture, product designers and the like to create fashion forward collections. From a fashion perspective, this means that colour has a major influence on what you see on the catwalks.
