Why it isn’t too early to be thinking about next fall?


It’s just mid February and already we are hearing news from the fashion and home decor industries about what will be on the runways and in the showrooms for fall. Pantone just released the Fall 2013 Fashion Color Report. Crazy, right? Well, not really. And here’s what it has to do with you as a crafts person. If you wholesale to galleries or shops, they are buying a couple of seasons ahead so you should be designing your jewelry, wearables or home accessories with that in mind.

 You’re probably already applying for craft shows for next fall and when you send in your photos, the jury will be looking at how in-tune your work is with trends.
