It’s a design trend that fashionistas have been waiting for. The Pantone Color Institute, a US color consultant company, announced loud and clear that its 2018 Color of the Year is ultra violet. A shade in which Pantone described as “dramatically provocative and thoughtful,” the purple color is said to connote the mystery of universe, the intrigue of what’s lies ahead, and the inspirations to go beyond. 2018 is the time of disruptive technology which leaders in areas of business and government will not only have to keep up to date with all developments, but also be ready to undergo the changing business climate.  And, ultra violet perfectly reflects these complex times.

Color is one of the important design elements that give a fashion piece its own individuality. As fashion trends change rapidly, garment and textile manufacturers will have to upgrade their technology and restructure business strategies to meet the ever-changing demand of the fashion market. Thus, no business can afford to be color unaware.
