HSBC Colombo fashion week 2012:
Dulux forecasts colour trends
Elegance, glamour and cutting-edge style were the buzz words at HSBC
Colombo fashion week that was held at the Hilton Colombo on February 24,
25 and 26.
Adding to the excitement and sophistication of the evening was Dulux,
who was present as the Official Colour Forecaster for HSBC Colombo
fashion week 2012.
In the midst of local and international design talent, Dulux brought
colour and style with their latest colour palettes for the year 2012.
As the Official Colour Forecaster, Dulux gave the invitees to fashion
week information on the evolution of colours; basically how each colour
has evolved from 2006 to 2012. An AV which gave an in-depth view of how
the colour palettes for 2012 were chosen was shown at the venue.
The selection of these colour palettes occurs each year at the
Aesthetic Center of Akzo Nobel in the United Kingdom.
The Aesthetic Center brings together creative experts from the fields
of design, architecture and fashion, who draw inspiration from fine arts
to technology to identify the colour palettes for the year. Participants
were also able to receive Dulux Ambiance idea cards which highlighted
the Ambiance themes and the colours which effectively bring out one's
innate personal style.
Another popular highlight of fashion week was the Dulux Ambiance
fashion portrait. Dressed in their best, participants were able to get
their photographs taken with Dulux fashion portrait. The photographs
were against a trendy backdrop which stylishly highlighted the
forecasted colour for the year which is a blushy, lively, juicy red.
On February 25, when all elements of HSBC Colombo fashion week
represented ethical fashion, Dulux promoted a theme known as 'one small
seed' which has a range of colours which focus on one's bond with
nature. Once the photographs were taken invitees were able to walk away
with a memento of the event, which was their fashion portrait,
beautifully placed in a fashionable frame.
Glamour and style were plentiful at HSBC Colombo fashion week and
with the participation of Dulux, the stylish of Colombo were able to get
insight, not only into the latest styles and trends but also into making
their living spaces as fashionable as them.
