Do you homework and do it early. With only 124 days until the OOAK show there is no time for mistakes. Just because you love the colour orange doesn't necessarily mean that everyone is going to love that bright new orange dress you've made 50 of. I have been looking at the Pantone fashion colour forecast webpage for two days. I knew that I wanted to add red to my palette but when I am ordering 300 metres of one kind of fabric to be knit for me the red has to be the perfect shade, tone or tint of red. There are reds that lean toward orange and those that have blue under tones. I chose PANTONE 18-1662 Flame Scarlet. It was the prominent colour of the London Fashion Week this past year.
