Fashion Mood Boards for Autumn/Winter 2006/7


This Autumn 2006/7 season sees more subtle colours edging out the brighter vibrant hues of last winter.  Here is my take on fashion mood boards for women's clothes for fall fashion trends 2006 to help you envisage the tones you'll see on rails in shops. All thumbnails of the storyboards enlarge.  See full fashion colour report 2006/7 here.  See key fashion trend looks for fall 06/7 here.


Earthen Gold Fashion Mood Board

All thumbnails of the storyboards enlarge.

Powdery shades with brownish earthy rust undertones range from golden ochres, a hint of citrus to warmer softer champagne mink tones that lead to chalky powder rusts through to brighter watermelon, rich red, dark mahogany plum hues and back through to regal purple.

Gold metal is the jewellery of choice this season and any gold chain on a designer or high street fashion handbag makes the perfect accessory to help update your look.  Fashion metallica is a winner when made with gold tone metal whether real or fake.  Note how many items on this moodboard are fur trimmed placing an emphasis on contrasting textures.

Red Rusts Mood Board

The red story board is a big one this winter.  The golds move through into earthen rusts and rich tones of red with the depth of sun dried tomatoes.   More sombre apparel will benefit from the red hue, a good accent colour choice for any fashion accessory for Autumn 2006 winter 2007.  Consider accessories such as red gauntlet gloves to top off a grey or black and white scheme.

Purples Mood Board

The purple palette is a fashion mood board that continues from last autumn.  It is as popular a colour as ever and melts into softer dusty pinks and natural tones.  These colours are rich and spectacular for day or evening as there are so many tones to layer together.  They mix well with soft teal a popular blue tone of the past year.

Grey & Monochrome Fashion Mood Board

Another storyboard full of knit and fabric texture, but in a monochrome color scheme.  This scheme is a play on black and white/cream, gradations of grey tones from whisper greys, to beige greys to deepest charcoal and all relying on texture and contrast to uplift this palette.  However this safe scheme is very wearable and workable for everyday wear.  Classic items in this palette can be the backbone of your basic wardrobe.

Note - I made these montage mood story boards using Paint Shop Pro 7 software. Read about Autumn 2006/7  the main looks for Autumn Winter 2006/7.  You are reading an original fashion trends article written by Pauline Weston Thomas© at ©
