National Colour Week is being held from the 1-7 of September this year and we are so excited to indulge in creative colour and new tantalising trends. Trend Talk will also be held during this week in its sixth series, we are going to attend the gathering of creative minds, the latest in Décor and Design and what the future holds in trends. This will take place on the 3rd of September and the sessions are open to all interested parties, at no cost, and are held in aid of design charity, Rock Girl. There is a voluntary donation at the door. Trendtalk#6, titled “the colour of the times”, will outline new directions for colour in 2014, design socialism in Portugal and London, and an overview of the recent “Fall” Collections. The event includes a lucky draw from Entrepo, a pop-up shop by Karien Belle Boutique, and refreshments courtesy of Sir Juice and wine from Groote Post. We cant wait to heat the trendtalk#6 speaker panel which includes celebrity journalist Les Aupiais, fashion stylist Catherine Bowen, and colour trend forecaster Anne Roselt. Get ready for a day of delight. Plascon-Forecast
