Last Thursday, my class had the opportunity to attend the Pitti Filatti show here in Florence, which is one of the main international events for the yarn industry. As aspiring designers, we were able to see color and yarn forecasts for the upcoming seasons! It was awesome being able to know that we are amongst the first people to see color and yarn trends before anyone else! The show was more than just piles of yarn but color trends were displayed throughout the event through sniff and color combos, foods, drinks, outfits made of knitted yarn swatches, fun colored stools, and etc!
The event was filled with great inspiration for buyers, designers, students, and the like!
Here are some photos taken with my Iphone, which explains the quality :/ Really regretted not lugging my dslr this time. But you can click HERE, and check out their media gallery!

Sorry for the photo overload! Had SO many to chose from, it was quite difficult to narrow down! But hopefully these photos gave you a look at some great color inspirations for the future
