Truth be told I haven’t always been that concerned about the latest trends or even fashion. But as other areas of my artist life have become supressed as I enter adulthood I find myself fascinated with colors, textiles and creating clothes that reflect my artistic personality. As a graphic designer I’m also suppose to keep abreast to the lastest happenings in the Pantone world…So 2011 is Honeysuckle! Surprise, didn’t see that one coming did you? Me neither. I’m not crazy about this color, probably because my pallet always leans towards hot pink or pale pink, but I’m willing to try it. I was recently watching a documentary called 180° south, which so far I recommend, but the main character Jeff Johnson said, “The best journeys answer questions that in the beginning you didn’t even think to ask.” How that ties in with fashion? Sometimes you simply have to try something on in order to realize that you love it. But without going on that journey of discovery you would have never known that that very color was your favorite!
