According to PANTONE, ‘Color of the Year’ is a reflection of what people are looking for, “It isn’t necessity, the hot fashion color of the moment” (although, I’ve seen it used in the fashion world mostly last year……think shades of Plum). PANTONE describes it as a color crossing all areas of design. It is an expression of mood and attitude.
