LATEST TREND NEWS FROM FRAN IN EUROPE

I’m finishing up my last day here and wanted to share the 4 big ideas in Women’s fashion that I saw everywhere in Paris and London . . . also the over-riding impression for home furnishings. The color message was very clear in both London and Paris; and while there were fewer ideas and looks, the key items were repeated in every market . . . it’s been a good trip!

Hope you’ll join my webinar next month where I’ll show you all of the above with candid commentary, with lots of great visuals and a typically fun look at the mannequins and good visual merchandising ideas.

We’re offering Pre-Release discount registration fee if you join now!

Women’s: $50 per person (later invitation price will be $75)

SILKY

Everything is silky in textile attitude: tops, layering pieces, skirts, pants, shorts, dresses, jackets! Solid and printed. Real silk and rather cheap-looking polyester in the young and moderate areas.
