-- Los Angeles, CA- After my trip back from New York during Fashion Week, it’s again all about color. As per my last fashion trend report, orange is still strong, along with yellow, green, purple, lavender, blue, and red. Noticeably, there will be softer shades of these colors to give energy and a positive feeling. Also, due to the volatile metal market pricing, expect to see a lot of silver and its creative uses, such as silver with gold & diamond accents still to remain popular.
While the European shows have yet to commence, expect fun flowing shades. This trend was perfectly executed by New York based designer, Angel Sanchez. His new 2012 line showed bright colors with more ruffles and toned downed straight lines, sure to be a hit. Another new designer jewelry line coming out end of 2011 is Patricia Rose™. She beautifully executes a fashion forward silver line with great detail and quality and just a touch of Hollywood Retro look with fine colored stones. Can’t wait!
Finally, bridal sales to remain strong! Wait and see the new bridal brands inspired by famous wedding dress designers to be release 2012. They will surely capture the new trendy buyers that want uniqueness with attitude. Big and bold is still in. Expect to see again a lot of large dangling earrings, bold colored stone rings, pendants, and large & fun silver cuff colored stone bracelets. Keep you eye on life style guru B.Smith and her 2011 jewelry line.
