WINTER 07 – 08 COUTURE TREND/FORECAST REPORT




Introduction:

Winter 2007 – 2008 couture fashion will be swept away by romantic classicism and militaristic modernism. Consisting of a soft natural color palette including pastels and soft grays, romantic classicism will be enchanted with silk chiffons, adorned lace, and satin jacquards. The S and A-line silhouettes of the enchanted season will be highlighted with ruffling, pleating, and tiered flounces.
Militaristic modernisms will consist of neutrals, dark gray’s, and a rustic color palette. Paving the way to the twenty-first century technology, militaristic modernism will be a mixing of new synthetic fibers with precious medals to create a sculpted bell shape silhouettes for winter of 07-08.
