HFM 060 Fashion Forecasting: Seeing into the Future
By analyzing consumers’ past buying patterns, identifying emerging trends in retail and on the streets, and recognizing current cultural influences, a fashion forecaster helps designers, product developers and merchandisers “see into the future”. Being able to predict next year’s fashion trends is a valuable and marketable skill. Learn how to conduct research, record observations, use the tools of the forecasting industry, and identify key target markets. Then put it all together to identify upcoming trends in color, silhouettes and fabrics.
