Well, I’ve just about finished my trend research and after several presentations and consultations, am a bit surprised, shocked, nervous and apprehensive about the new season. At the same time, I am totally intrigued, totally excited, and loving much of what I’ve seen! Next fall is truly a shift from where we’ve been, which has been pretty classic and to be honest, a bit boring both here and abroad……not much excitement and not much to talk about.
We will be going from happy and upbeat and sugary sweet for Spring ’13 to dark, somber, mystical, ornate, outlandish for Fall ’13. Oh what to do, what to do…….for my moderate ladies brands/clients……my challenge will be how to interpret this very dramatic direction for them; to make the new ideas palatable and usable for them. Am a bit puzzled at the moment on how, but…..
take a look at what I find totally intriguing, inspiring, and so expressive for next year.
