Regenerate SS2021: The Future of Colour and Design
June 29 | 2:00pm ET

Join Anna Starmer, founder of Luminary Colour Consultancy for an exclusive look at design and colour insights that matter NOW. As we face unprecedented global change, Anna will focus on the stories which are emerging as key human-scale responses and identify needs for our new future. The webinar will feature Luminary Issue 21, a view towards Spring/Summer 2021 trends that examine a brave new path, and asks how can we ‘Regenerate’ – as humans, designers, buyers and consumers. As we work more and more without a season, the presentation will reinforce that notion and demonstrate the use of colours across seasons and categories representing key themes to further a beautiful future.
