It's been a while since I posted here on my blog, the last time was in October. I guess it's because I got really busy at the end of 2012. The end of the year is big with craft fairs and getting ready for Christmas.
Green. Green isn't just environmentally friendly. It's the color designers are reclaiming for 2013. And one particular shade--Emerald Green-- has been chosen as the color of 2013. So those of you born in May can break out your emeralds and wear them all year.
Why green? "Green is the most abundant hue in nature--the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum," says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. "Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today's complex world." Green is also a color with a positive effect on the brain, releasing tension and reducing stress, which is why it is frequently used in color therapy, in schools and in hospitals.
From the grass-green emerald to the brilliant lime of peridot, green is moving back into use in the fashion world this year. Styles feature rich, deeply saturated shades that are sophisticated, feminine and bold. They're chic--not meek! Green is going boldly into winter and throughout the year ahead.
