ombre means: An ombre is a transition from one colour to another. It uses all of the colours in the spectrum. It is derived from the Latin word umbrare which means to overshadow or shade. Chiaroscuro shading, a technique used by artists to achieve shading or cross-hatching, is popular in Haute Couture. John Galliano’s Rene Gruau Dior Couture collection is an example.
