Design for fashion and graphic design are very closely related in terms if colours, silhouettes, trends and ethos. I keep a close eye on all design from fashion, furniture, typography and the generally feel for each season as it is all distilled down into the designs that I create online and in print.

Of course, Blossom has it's own style, with a core niche market, so we tend not to move terribly far from our "look" - but we are swayed by fashion, and keep a close eye on what is going on.

This past season jewels of all sorts, embellishments and general bling has played a big role in our logo and packaging design and most sites this season created by us utilise sparkles and gems to lift the site of the browser window page.

Coral is starting to come through into sites, although pink and black are still the predominant colours we are using.

The other trends breaking through are contemporary twists on historical themes, such as the use of baroque furniture and frames, gold and ornamentation.
