Every time I make a new bag, I wonder if I'm using the most popular and best fashion forward colors and patterns. One of the resources I like to use is the Pantone website. I've added the link so you can download their Fashion Color Report for Fall 2008. "Best described as a season of change, fall ’08 is defined by rich, elegant hues that offer a vibrant selection. New York's fashion designers emphasize cooler blues, greens and purples in the top five tones used in their collections, followed by variations of warm red, orange and yellow."
