Curated by ITF - Issue 29
Colour Analysis Skills Kit
Ever spent hours of sweat and tears (and even sometimes a bit of bloodshed!), only to find something’s not quite right about the shirt you’ve just made. #sewdisappointing
You work your way through a checklist…
It’s not the style. You love it!
You’ve nailed the fit.
The finishing details? Totally on point.
So what’s the problem??
Alongside fit and finish, the fabric we choose for a garment is one of the things that can lead to us wearing a garment all the time or not at all. But it’s not just the type of textile that’s important. It’s the colour too!
With the help of Colour Image Consultant, Nina Smith, and our Colour Analysis Skills Kit you can explore the world of colour and have fun curating a wardrobe full of clothes in a colour palette you love and feel confident in.
This resource will help you understand why colours can make you feel confident and put together, or uncomfortable and self-conscious. You’ll gain insight into the colours you love to wear, and the colours you feel great in. And, when you work through our guided process you’ll create a colour palette you can take with you when you’re shopping for fabric or garments, so you can confidently #addtocart.
Add another level of thought and intention to the process of creating a sustainable wardrobe, leading to less waste. The right outcome for both the environment and our back pocket!
