eWedNewz interviewed various segments of the dress market talking with respected sources in their field. Consistently we found the answers agreeing with the top ten colors.
Black, Purple, Mulberry, Gem, Dark Teal, Malibu, Bali Silver, Champagne Tan, Fuchsia
Second only to black, purple is the biggest prom color identified by major dress designers, bridal publications and formal wear accessory-makers. The Dynasty vest and neck-wear collection comes in over 30 colors.
Wedding expert and publicist, Sheryl Davies, said the following, agreeing with Black’s assessment of the 2013 colors;
” I agree with Mr. Black with some comment; he is bang on. Purple is huge and has been for 3 seasons. (fig, mulberry fuchsia etc). Pink is still hugely popular- to me it’s like pepto but still a girly color. Gold is gaining in popularity. Gray is the new black. Apple or Poppy re, Ivory or linen; all valid choices.”
From his statement, we think Tony Bowls might be certain about purple next season.
The most striking comment from designers we spoke to comes from Tony Bowls;
“Purple,Purple,and more Purple ! Purple in soft chiffon Popular! Purple in Jersey very Popular; Purple in all sequins over the top Popular ! The passion for purple is positive ! Mixtures of Bali silver and champagne are everywhere !!! These color combos are definitely staying on the hot list again this season !!!
Black along with soft pastels have made it’s classic self a must have again ! Edgy black beading with soft chiffon are embraced more than ever …
Hope this helps and as always Paul thank you for being a constant source of support … You are much appreciated !
The Dynasty collection by FLOW (Bali Silver shown) hits on all the latest colors. New features include a pattern back for a retail look not found in other vest collections.
