How Does Fashion Correlate With Todays Society? + Fashion Week Colors

The fashion world is changing its perspective on individuality and self-expression. The catwalk is a clear indication that society is embracing the individual more and more.


We’re already seeing the start of a big, big shift:


Announced last Friday, Pantone, the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, recently released its highly anticipated Spring/Summer 2023 fashion week color report which features the most desired hues that designers plan to showcase throughout the upcoming season.


It's amazing how much society values the individual now, you can really see it in the way people express themselves through fashion.

People are becoming more aware of the beauty in diversity, which is awesome.

I bet this trend towards self-expression will only keep growing as people feel more and more comfortable being themselves.

From brightening brights to nonplussing tones, colors for Spring/Summer 2023 are recalibrated, highlighting the employment of individualism in unlikely ways.


“Colors for Spring/Summer 2023 are recalibrated for the new era we are entering. Blending escapism with reality, wholesomeness, and joy, we embrace the exploration of extreme contrast in mood and color" said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. “There is utility and basic-ness to this season’s color story, while at the same time, there is an uplifting vital sense of play that comes through.”
