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.
