Q. How do these trends relate to the apparel and accessories?

-They did not use many kinds of accessories in the runway show. They only are with sunglasses, cap, bangle, neck lace, and gloves. But it is not a lot.
-Using a few accessories. It would be emphasized their designs and draping. It is very related to apparel and accessories.

Q. Based upon your research, the material in this course, and your own observations, identify which of these runway beauty trend will be volume drivers for 2013.Explain the reasons for your choice.

-In my opinion, these days, we did not make up too much.

We just look like one point make up. For example, focused on eye or lip with vivid colors.  A few years ago, smoky eye make up is very popular. However, today, skin type is more popular dewy and pure than blush or bronzer. It looks like neutral. So, it would be popular to next year. Now, we are more focusing on lip colors, But, for next year, it would focus on eye may up with neutral skin tone. Fashion people do not like an old-fashioned ideas. We want to change and try something. Also, we should follow the whirligig of fashion. However, we can not change everything at one go. Right now, we are following one point make up. So usually, changing trend comes around every four or five years. That’s why it would be follow the trend to next year.

During the presentation, Linard described trend forecasting as a way of curating fashion, and putting things together in a new way. The rest of the presentation entailed Edelkoort’s research for trends for 2012-2013

My summary about the presentation

– I attended the fall 2013/14 trend forecast presented by trend union on Monday April 30. They presented about fashion and style trends for fall/winter 2013-14. It was details silhouettes, colors, patterns and lifestyles for the new season.

First of all, I felt Romanticism, the way we feel too.

The trend would be Romanticism with very dark.They showed many kinds of themes like Melancholic, Lyrical, Germanic, Folkloric, Poetic, Shamanistic, Frenetic, Poetic, Floral, and etc. one of most impressive themes Folkloric. It looks like natural and patterned with Red color. Especially, I liked the colors, which are orange and mustard. It was very harmonious with this trend. 

Also, 2013 main color would be white. It feels sadness. On the other hands, it would be as dark and as light for children colors.

It was very great time.

Guest post by Rachel Ambasing

One amazing thing about fashion styling and photography is that a person can communicate their aesthetic in a manner that transcends all language barriers. So even though I don’t speak a word of Korean, I’m still an avid fan of editorials styled for W Korea — even during times when the dreariest of trends reigns, this magazine always comes through with bold color, and this month’s shoot was no exception:
