Cartoon World

Color blocking has been for a while one of the fashion trends.
Many designers have made their personal look of it and it seems to go on even stronger.
Of course it is important and in time in summer collections, but it is seen also in coming autumn/winter 2012 collections.
Some designer have it very bright and others in slightly darken tones.

It is very comprehend that colors have made their coming after many dark, gloomy, principally black seasons.
Also now we can see those colours, colour blocking even in neon colours on the streets. People want to be individual and want it to show out too.

But where are we going?
If we collect all impressions shown at streets and catwalks, it looks like we are more and more going to ”cartoon direction”.
If we look the guests of New York fashion week it was the obvious change.
Many fashionistas were having, may be little curious out look, like they were living creatures from some cartoon or fable.
They were telling their own cartoon by their clothes, and I think it is fantastic. It is a very welcome feature in fashion.
