New York Fashion Week 2015 & Marketing

 

We are in the midst of New York City Fashion week.  The long awaited events and festivities are taking New York City by storm, as big name designers and couture fashion houses are prepared to show case their collections.

The first step that goes into designing a marketable fashion collection, would be creating a concept, or theme. The second step would be creating the color palette that would best showcase the content and be appealing to the consumer.

A very important component in the fashion industry is Pantone Inc.  The  Pantone Inc. is a corporation headquartered in Carlstadt, New Jersey. The company is best known for its Pantone Matching System (PMS), which is a proprietary color space used in a variety of industries, primarily printing, though sometimes in the manufacture of colored paint, fabric, and plastics.

Several industries such as the fashion, beauty, design sectors incorporate the Pantone color matching system, “Color intelligence System, as well as the color or the year and color of the season.

Passions!

I often associate the word “passion” with a feeling and not necessarily a thing.¬† A feeling of absolute happiness, never ending joy and bliss.¬† A feeling that just fills you up on the inside and completely occupies the inner depths of your being and leaves you wanting, or needing¬†nothing else.

There are four things in this life that makes me feel this way.  One being the love and admiration I have for my family. My willingness to help, motivate, and inspire all the people around me.  My love for everything arts and crafts related and last but not least, SHOPPING!

Now if I were some mad scientist, which I am not, and if I were to¬†gather up¬†all my passions, as if they were ingredients and toss them into a bubbly cauldron of “what to do with my life soup”, there would be a barrage of glitter, party confetti, the music of ¬†loud trumpets,¬†and big neon letters that spelt, “events management!” I will take two cups to go please!

Events management is a passion of mine and what I want to spend my life learning, perfecting and mastering.  I realized this passion of mine when I got my first apartment.  I was so excited to buy cans of paint, tiles, grout, wood finishes, plaster and door knobs, you name it, and I did it!  I have always been a very creative person, I believe it is a trait I got from my mother, who till this very day is an inspiration of mine. I love drawing, repurposing, arranging items, decorating, brain storming themed ideas and executing everything on a budget without sacrificing quality.

There is just something about having an idea, putting it to paper, and watching the allure and granger unfold right in front of your eyes like a manifestation of effort and determination.
