Colour & Dress Designing


Fashion Colour Design

One of the most important yet challenging aspects in the design process of any dress is selecting appropriate colours.  Just as the wrong colour choice can destroy the appeal of an otherwise spectacular dress, strategic colour choice can elevate simpler garments to a much higher level.  Regardless of whether you choose to work with a single colour or a much more adventurous palette, an understanding of the basic principles of fashion colour design is vital.  Contrary to popular belief, professional dress designers do not simply select colours at random, in accordance with what looks good on the day.  Instead, selecting the right colour combination in dress designing is shown as much time and attention as every other element in the design process.

This insightful tutorial has been designed for current and prospective dress designers alike.  Explore a variety of critically important colour selection and application concepts, including the Prang colour system, dimensions of colour, harmonies and intensity, contrasts and balance, effective application of colour on a fashion figure, the basic principles of colour in fashion design and more.
