The Showtime textiles market, held twice annually in High Point, took place shortly after Pantone announced their 2014 color of the year, Radiant Orchid. So, it was no surprise that fabric companies were showing off the entire range of red-cast purples in their assortments. The variety of weaves and surface-design styles confirmed that these purples will be versatile players in textiles for 2014 and beyond.
In starring roles or as supporting cast, here are some of The Trend Curve’s favorite purple introductions from Showtime. To see The Trend Curve’s forecast for 2015 purples, see The Trend Curve Colors™ 2015, our annual color-and-trend forecast, which is available in the Trend Store.
