So after reading about all the fun things we do in the city in the Precollege programs, like shopping trips and walks on the High Line and whatnot, you’re probably wondering if we actually do any serious work. Yes. We do.
For example, for my fashion merchandising class we were assigned to head to Meatpacking (check out the post I wrote about Meatpacking) and shop around the stores, not for clothes, for trends. We went to over 10 different stores for the assignment, and I think I speak for everyone in my class when I say it was an amazing day.
However, when the day was over, it was time to get serious and prepare a presentation on a few of the stores we visited. We had to analyze the fabrics used (whether natural or synthetic), the prints and colors of the clothes, as well as the sizing, the silhouette, and any details on the clothes (such as buttons, zippers, ruffles, asymmetrical hems, etc.). Lastly, we had to summarize the overall trends of each store to come to a conclusion as to what we believe are the most prevalent trends of this spring for womenswear.
If you’d like to go through my project, here it is.

What do you think are the most prevalent trends this spring?
