Each Season us girls in the merchandising department at TÉLIO consult colour forecasts when buying a collection so we know what to expect for the upcoming season. These trends are a forecast of what is to come based on the colour direction of past seasons and hints at new trendy colours for the upcoming one!

We then create our own colour trends working with a palette that pertains more closely to TÉLIO’s market (because not all trendy colours are best-selling colours). We work with these colour palettes when creating a colour story for a fabric or when choosing new colours to add to a currently running basic.

These colour trends are also a coveted item to give to our reps as a selling tool and as inspiration for our customers. Here is a condensed version of the 4 colour palettes we are working with this Fall/Winter 2014-2015 season.
