Highlights from New York Fall Fashion Week 2014


“Design is a constant challenge to balance comfort with luxe , the practical with the desirable”

-Donna Karan

Even though we are a few seasons ahead the fashion world moves fast and is already thinking about sweaters, holiday dresses, wool skirts and jackets. New York Fall Fashion Week took place in February and designers showed up with their A game, keeping in mind Pantones color palate for Fall, 2014. Just like the Spring the color report is guide or road map to shade and tones we will be seeing this fall in department stores around the country. This is just a small taste of the highlights from fashion week, a preview of designer wear and as we get closer to the fall I will put out a piece on the actual Pantone colors in stores. For now enjoy a sneak peek of whats to come for the Autumn season in color. Enjoy! -Kel

Spring Forward – Kelly’s Debut A Color Review


Hi all! So this is my first posting for BethKaya Design & Consulting and I wanted to take the time to thank her for this opportunity. As these pieces develop I hope to find a voice you all can relate to and please feel free to ask any questions or comment.

Since we are all anxious on the east coast to pull ourselves out of this polar vortex I want to talk about the Spring season (Woohoo) In particular, the colors that will be present in department stores and magazines for the 2014 season. For over 20 years Pantone has surveyed the collections from designers and then put out their color report. This is what tells the fashion world what we are likely to see on the runway and in stores. It is a great guide to staying relevant in an always changing fashion world. I wanted to include a few of my favorite looks and items for this years Spring color report. Enjoy!
