10 Feb Colours and Fashion
“The chief function of colour should be to serve expression.”Henri Matisse
Colour has always been a powerful factor to define someone. Colour helps us to express ourself and acts as a signal to others.When we dress for a special occasion or for everyday tasks, we consider the scenario and the colours that match with it. For example, we usually wear neutral colours to funerals, whereas for celebratory celebrations, we use warm, brilliant colour palettes.
It is apparent that colour is a significant aspect in both our lives and our wardrobes. When purchasing things, 92.6% of consumers indicated they value visual factors.
