Fashion designing, that is creating pretty garments and party wears centers around the use of colors like red, green, yellow, blue, orange etc. The prime job of a fashion designer is to look for fresh and innovative ideas to spice up the designs and this job will stay incomplete if there are no colors thrown in it.  There seem to be a lack of understanding as to what primary colors can do for you, so there were thousands of tints and hues innovated every day to give in a new blush to the garments.

Earlier there was a time when fashion industry was full of dark tints and hues which were mostly consisted of the ethnic tribal prints, where maroon was the favorite color of the woman’s attire and black was the favorite color of the gent’s suit.

With changing times, many other things have also changed like people gradually saw the replacement of cultural and gaudy prints with sober and stylish prints. Also maroon was replaced with other primary colors and soon people started using lighter shades in pairs with each other like sky blue and pink. Also men started using shades of black like light and dark grey. People started becoming more open to colors since the stereotype was broken.

Then the new era brought with it the dazzling and cutting edge designs which were showcased during the trendy Fashion Week. New designers, sexy designs and dark colors dominated the first few fashion weeks. Later with time some of the same designs will turn upside down with fashion becoming less on work and more on colors and fabrics used.

Nowadays people are more and more inclined towards the use of bold colors that produce a statement like cherry red and funky orange.

Sometimes cheeky, sometimes tacky these eccentric colors hold the key to our heart and makes us more fashionable than we were earlier.

What’s your opinion on these changing trends? I would love to hear it in the comments section.
