Color - trends and the construction of palettes
ZOOM EVENT Saturday, 19 November 2022, 10-11 AM EDT, (4-5 PM France)
Veronique Kadi Lecrosnier is a colorist and textile designer based in La Rochelle, France. She has over 25 years of experience in luxury ready to wear (prêt à porter de luxe) knits, prints, jacquard and embroidery. Some of her clients are Agnès B, Kenzo, Guigou and Sfate & Combier. Veronique advises the federation of French tanners, the Centre Technique du Cuir on color trends - the focus of this event.
Veronique will share how she goes about putting together a color palette starting with a spontaneous intuitive approach and gradually structuring it to form cohesive gammes or color combinations. Her approach to color is uniquely French with influences from her native Brittany, Morocco and India where she traveled extensively during her student days at the Ecole National Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris.
This is the first of our events on the process of textile design. The next event will be with Anne Corbiere, a designer who worked intensely with the fashion world in France in the 90s and early 2000s. Today she creates exclusive furnishing fabrics shown in showrooms in Paris, London, NY, Austin Tx, LA. Anne will speak to us on 04/21/2023.
