” 2013 is all about a vivid, verdant shade of green that “enhances our sense of well-being further by inspiring insight, as well as promoting balance and harmony,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.
“Since antiquity, this luminous, magnificent hue has been the color of beauty and new life in many cultures and religions,” said Eiseman in a press release. “It’s also the color of growth, renewal and prosperity – no other color conveys regeneration more than green.“
The prevalence of green has been steadily rising for several seasons, especially in the fashion and couture markets, and even on the red carpet.
Pantone experts put a great deal of effort into choosing the annual color of the year, looking for influences in entertainment, traveling art collections, popular destinations or even sporting events that garner worldwide attention, according to the company.
Attention will be paid by all the fabric houses as they quickly come up with
color and pattern featuring this new trend color – Emerald.
We will definitely be seeing more.

Springtime Fun- Orange
What do you think? Happy to be headed in an emerald direction?
