WHAT IS PANTONE COLOUR?

What is Pantone Colour? I’ve searched and searched to find out where the name Pantone derived from. So far I have failed so I decided to hazard a guess and assume that it stands for Paint Tone. Between 1956 – 1961 the New Jersey-based company was a small enterprise that manufactured colour cards for cosmetics companies.

An Impossible Choice: Fast Fashion V Slow Fashion

Fast Fashion V Slow Fashion My brand really believes in the Slow Fashion movement so it seemed fitting to illustrate the differences between Fast Fashion V Slow Fashion in my article written for Utelier.
