Fall/Holiday 2009 Runway Color Forecast

Color is everything when it comes to fashion. Here is a look at the fashion industries Color Forecast for Fall/Holiday '09. See how our collection measures up to the Key colors forecasted. (Honestly, it looks as if we are right on)!!!

Lucky Red
Designers channeled positive energy and luck with this season's most celebrated color-red. Saturated reds dramatically impacted runway collections and accessories followed suit. From bags and gloves to belts and pumps, head-to-toe looks were accessorized monochromatically, proving that red will remain the hot color of the moment.
See Donnavinci catalog: pg 8, 10, 37 & 42. Lisa Rene catalog: Cover, pg 11, 13.

Warm Autumnal
Warm autumnal palettes emerged as the perfect blend of browns with red undertones, camels, tobaccos and auburn tones. With subtle darks appearing as a key component, soft contrasts of yellow and gold in sumptuous suede and baby calf leathers added an earthy element reminiscent of early fall.
See Donnavinci catg.: pg 6, 11, 22, 23, 24, 28, 29, 31. Lisa Rene catg.: pg 12, 17, 21, 22.

Green Day
Shades of spirited greens suggested a harmonious balance between statement colors and the overwhelming use of darker palettes woven through F/W 09 collections. Signifying nature and growth, green surfaces in beautiful Knits, satin, and emerald-colored jewels look best when paired with flesh-toned neutrals or basic black.
See Donnavinci catg.: Cover, pg 2, 13, 17, 25, 41

Very Berry
Designers' use of regal hues of deep violets, pomegranate and lavenders provided a fantasy-like setting for mysterious and exciting runway looks. Jeweled embellishments and playful enamels gave novelty appeal to suits & accessories.
See Donnavinci catg.: pg 19, 26, 30, 41 & 42. Lisa Rene: pg 9, 10, 16, 17, 24, back cover.

Black & White
Couture designers incorporated plain & graphic black and white palettes and created contrasts through patterned textiles. Tuxedo looks and contrast embroidery still strong.

Want to Look 20 Years Younger?

Want to dress chic yet look 20 years younger?!! Then Lisa Rene's Pre-coordinated Separates is the way to go. For the past few seasons, the Couture runways have been showing more and more Separates as key components, when it comes to dressing-up. Asking women to get creative and put together dressy outfits.

Well, that's all great, but the only problem with that is, most women cannot keep up with the ever changing fashions of 'what to wear with what'. And most don't have the Time to shop one store after another to put together the perfect outfit. And so, we have found a way to have the best of both worlds. A 3 piece outfit that "looks like" it has been put together by the woman who is wearing it. The final outcome is a woman dressed at the cutting edge of fashion, without having to sacrifice time and effort to do so.

Our year long and endless market research has given birth to 8 gorgeous Pre-coordinated outfits. We invite you to view them in the last few page of our Lisa Rene catalog. Even better, come and visit us in Las Vegas and see in person the great quality and workmanship they have to offer.
