Northern Chapter: COLOUR MEETS TREND
Wednesday 01 March 2017
School of Design, Northumbria University
|This was a stimulating event looking at the mystery behind colour trends.
There were three guest speaks: Jo Feeley, creator and managing director of the Trend Bible which is based in Newcastle; Jennifer Wigham, a design consultant and specialist in the intimate apparel sector and Karen Haller, Applied Colour Psychology Practitioner and teacher.
Jo Feeley brought along two of her very valuable Trend Bibles for the 2018/19 season which gave us an insight into future trends for a couple of years time and which she supplies to clients who are looking to her for advice and guidance into how to develop their brands in the right direction.
Jennifer gave a truly colourful talk on the fashion trending colours coming up over the next year in the intimate apparel sector whilst Karen Haller explored the trends from both a business perspective and what drives consumers to follow them, in other words, how colour influences or is used to influence our behaviour.
We then gathered for tea and coloured macaroons in the atrium and to view an exhibition of photographic imagery, objects and information all pertaining to the idea of colour trending.

Presentation of Student Prize

The Optical Group of the Institute of Physics held an Optical Biomimetics meeting in the Blackett Lab at Imperial College. Ever since humans contemplated replicating the flight of birds, biomimetics has sought solutions to complicated problems by examining how Nature, with the advantage of several millions of years of evolution, has tackled them before. Nowhere is this more apparent than in optics - hence the meeting.
