This week is my first full week back at work and I have to admit it feels good to be back into a routine. It’s been lovely to have a break but I’ve been quite excited to get back as I’ve got some really lovely projects to start the year off. One of them has a tropical theme, combined with Pantone’s colour of the year, Radiant Orchid. Now I love purple as a colour but the Radiant Orchid is quite a bright pinky purple and because I tend to lean more towards the softer colours, it’s been quite a challenge! I started off with a bright vivid colour palette but as the collection has been developing it’s gradually moved into a more delicate subtle palette, which I feel is more me. I just hope it still feels tropical! Here’s a sneaky peek, with more to follow very soon!
