Pantone LLC, a global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, announced the Pantone Fashion Color Trend Report Spring/Summer 2019 edition for New York Fashion Week (NYFW). Published for the fashion industry by the Pantone Color Institute, a trend forecasting and color consultancy, this season’s report features the top 12 stand out colors, as well as current takes on the four classic neutrals we can expect to see from fashion designers on the runway as they reveal their highly anticipated spring/summer collections.

According to Pantone Color Institute’s color experts, spring/summer 2019 reflects our desire to face the future with empowering colors that provide confidence and spirit; colors that are uplifting; joyful hues that lend themselves to playful expressionism and take us down a path of creative and unexpected combinations.
