As we move into a post-trend era, The PANTONE color range for Spring/Summer 2017 is very diverse. No longer following hard and fast rules when it comes to how we work with color whether for fashion or home furnishings, the idea is to be courageous, experiment and use color in a way that is unique and collaborative and above all else, colorful.

About Laurie Pressman: Laurie leads the business and creative strategy for the PANTONE Color Institute and the PANTONE Fashion + Home product line. She has over 20 years of experience in product development and merchandising for fashion and home furnishings brands and retailers including Federated Merchandising Group (now known as Macy’s Merchandising Group). Laurie currently sits on the Home Products Board at The  Fashion Institute of Technology and the Fashion Advisory Board at Savannah College of Art and Design.  She is involved in PANTONE'S color research and trend forecasting.

About the PANTONE Color Institute: In a competitive global marketplace, successful brands leverage color’s poignant power to differentiate and connect. The PANTONE Color Institute delivers insights that inform the effective commercial application of color through a range of trend forecast publications, color research and bespoke consultancy. When 80% of human experience is filtered through the eyes, we understand that the choice of color is critical.
