Pantone is a fashion company who decides what colours to use for the fashion industry, and according to them, turquoise is to be colour of the year. Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone company, described this colour as one that makes you feel relaxed and content. Since the economy is down, and people are stressed, apparently by having this colour rule the runways and department stores, it will liven things up a bit. I usually associate turquoise with beaches and summer(personally, not my favourite season), but hey, if it will help all of us feel less stressed then so be it! At least it’s a colour that goes with many things and can be mixed with other colours and shades.
