Fashion Trend Prediction – Myth and Fantasy

Recently I have been doing a lot of reading and research on upcoming fashion trends for the coming year.  One recurring theme that I’m super excited about is Fantasy and Myth.  Think fairytale, think epic – think all things medieval and all things natural.  I believe up to this point all of these have been touched on here and there with the Twilight rage, the Alice in Wonderland mania and even more recent – dragons.  In the coming year I see a more expansive and deepened delving into the mythical and magical.

Here are some things I would like to see – color palettes, themes and inspiration.

These images represent the earthy elements of the entire color scheme – rich browns, umbers, ambers – leafy and mossy greens with a hint of turquoise (think verdigris patina) and silvery grey.  Below we add a few highlight colors.
Lime and aubergine are added for brightness and texture.  

The final palette shows the addition of the rich and majestic aspects – royal blue, crimson and antiqued gold. 
Overall these colors can be combined in may ways….the overall theme of fantasy and myth is a large one, full of many possibilities.  Earthy tones with pops of color, natural elements such as leaves, flowers and creatures and majestic themes will by no means be the only “trends” of late 2010/early 2011, but will by far be my favorites!!
