FASHION FORESIGHT

HOW FASHION ILLUSTRATES THE WORLDS


MOST PRESSING MEGA TRENDS

Any person, business or brand looking to understand and lead cultural shifts
can turn to the fashion industry as a bellwether. Fashion not only shapes culture, it
acts as a mirror to society, reflecting important cultural shifts that may otherwise
be imperceptible.
The fashion industry caters to early adopters and seeks inspiration from the
edges, where trends and cultural shifts start. It is acutely attuned to changes in
the zeitgeist as well as the ambient influences of the biggest global trends (i.e.
MegaTrends).
For these reasons, the fashion industry can be an effective instrument for gauging
change and a proxy for trendspotting of the highest order.
In this report, well take a look at MegaTrends impacting life and society, illustrate
how they are manifesting within the fashion industry and translate what it means
for all brands.
After youve read this, the length of a hemline will take on entirely new meaning
and you will never view paisley the same.

This...stuff'? Oh. Okay. I see. You think this has nothing to do with you. You go to your
closet and you select...I don't know...that lumpy blue sweater, for instance because you're
trying to tell the world that you take yourself too seriously to care about what you put on
your back. But what you don't know is that that sweater is not just blue, it's not turquoise.
It's not lapis. It's actually cerulean. And you're also blithely unaware of the fact that in
2002, Oscar de la Renta did a collection of cerulean gowns. And then I think it was Yves
Saint Laurent who showed cerulean military jackets? And then cerulean quickly showed
up in the collections of eight different designers. And then it filtered down through the
department stores and then trickled on down into some tragic Casual Corner where you,
no doubt, fished it out of some clearance bin. However, that blue represents millions of
dollars and countless jobs and it's sort of comical how you think that you've made a choice
that exempts you from the fashion industry when, in fact, you're wearing the sweater that
was selected for you by the people in this room from a pile of stuff.
