Decorex reveals Plascon colour forecast for 2013
23 July 2012
Decorex Joburg, which takes place 8-12 August 2012, at Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand, will see four South African interior designers and fashion designers, at the invitation of Plascon, interpret the colour palette for 2013.
Interpreting the four themes will be Laurence Brick, of Laurence Brick Creative Direction and trend consultant to Decorex SA, Lisebo Mokhesi and George Boorsma of Ink Studio, Greg and Roche Dry of Egg Designs and interior designer Yvonne O'Brien, from The Private House Co.
All will decorate a room within the Plascon Trend House, demonstrating how straightforward it can be to use the latest paint colours in creating or revamping your living and working space. Moreover, in a first this year, fashion designers will form part of the event.
Craig Jacobs of Fundudzi, Anisa Mpungwe of Loin Cloth and Ashes, Lunar and Tiaan Nagel will all be creating fashion garments inspired by each of the palette themes.
"Using colour to bring harmony"
Plascon colour manager Anne Roselt says she worked closely with international colour experts and local décor, trend and fashion experts in compiling the 2013 Plascon colour forecast.
In compiling the 2013 Plascon colour palette, she worked with both local and international advisers. In South Africa, she continues to work with stylists and creative consultants Laurence Brick and Cathy O'Clery as well as Jodi Robertson of International Trend Information. This year she invited fashion designer Themba Mngomezulu of Darkie to join the colour panel.
