This presentation follows the tracking and trending of colour to determine how colours are selected, why some stay as a trend and others are fads and learn what the new neutrals of the decade are.

Trends: What to Buy, What to Pass By

Taking a deeper look at trends based on economics, the buyers in today’s market and what endures, Jane takes us on an entertaining journey of history, demographics and social studies to better understand where we’re going in the future. We’ll also learn how colour plays a role in how we lived yesterday, and what we’re choosing for tomorrow.
