Fashion inspired color palettes: Paint in the colors of the runway!

by Jessica Johnson February 21, 2019

fashion inspired color palettesIn case somehow you missed it, I ADORE fashion and couture! Not necessarily for the object of wearing it as a status symbol -- but for the fantasy, artistry and creativity that goes into it! As we well know, color trends are started on the runway. This influences design, illustration, interior design, and so much more! 

For most designers and illustrators, choosing colors and creating a sophisticated color palette for their designs can be a time-consuming and laborious process, which can slow down your productivity and your bottom line! What's cool about my Color Couture collections is that you have a ready-made color palette you KNOW is going to look good, and it's ready to load into your Creators Couture wet paint and impressionist photoshop brushes

What can you do with Color Couture palettes? What CAN'T you do? They are meant to help you create whatever it is you are already creating, and they are created especially for my groundbreaking, color-blending photoshop brushes. You can use them to create illustrations, accent designs, create stationery, invitations and templates... there are so many options! You can even use them to update a template you purchase with a fresh and fashionable color scheme! Be sure you check out my YouTube channel, because I am always adding new tutorials and giving you ideas on what to do with your products!! 

Check out some of my fashion muses below, and the color palettes that they have inspired! 

This collection is inspired by the colors of the Pamella Roland gown worn by Halle Berry to the 2018 Sag Awards. I love the elegance of the monochromatic nude / brown colors, combined with the shimmer and tulle.

This collection is inspired by the sky tones within the Armani Privé Spring 2018 couture collection. The nuances are subtle and elegant, with surprising pops of pink and black to compliment the obvious blue colors.

This collection is inspired by the colors of the Gucci gown worn by Brie Larson to the 2018 Sag Awards. I love the jewel encrusted florals, offset with an oh-so-delicate tulle touch around the neck and sleeves and jeweled lines forming a delicate bow!

This collection is inspired by the contrasting floral colors of Look 52 in the Fall 2018 Gucci Ready to Wear collection. I focused in on the pattern on the dress, and loved to see how the same colored flowers looked against the black vs the light colored background.

This collection is inspired by the colors look 41 of the Chanel Spring 2018 Couture Collection. The videos showing the creation of the Chanel couture gowls are the highlight of fashion week. I love to see the absolute artistry and craftsmanship that goes into every single flower on these dresses.

This collection is inspired by the colors of the Valentino gown worn by Vanessa Kirby to the 2018 SAG Awards. I love the ethereal colors and gauzy, romantic effect.

This collection is inspired by the colors of Look 14 in the Schiaparelli Spring 2018 Couture Collection. I get lost in the earthy tones and lovely textures of the jacket, which looks kind of like upholstery material. When contrasted with the deep burgundy red of the skirt, it’s perfection!

This collection is inspired by the colors look 20 of the Guo Pei Spring 2018 Couture Collection. What a look of absolute fantasy - a gilded forest growing on a person - with absolutely entrancing branches and undergrowth. I could look at this dress for days!

I was really inspired by a few of the looks in the new Pre-Fall 2019 Christian Dior collection. The looks pictured jumped out at me with their earthy orange and green colors, along with some multi-color blends -- so I decided to create a color palette collection that you can use with ANY of my impressionist photoshop brushes!

Hey fellow fashion fans! For me, nothing is more exciting than the couture collections twice a year! I thought I would share a little color palette inspo featuring some of my favorite looks from spring 2019! This collection by Zuhair Murad was called #aquaticserenade and seemed to be inspired by underwater life, mermaids, and the sea.

I'm still getting inspired from the latest Chanel Spring 2019 Couture collection. Here's some color palette inspiration from one of the fabulous looks. The floral embroidery combined with real flowers in resin created an amazing effect! What do you think?
