Ever wondered why "all-look-same" when you go shopping for clothes? Blame it on the trend forecasters! At college, we use a French company called Promostyl who for an exhorbitant fee will send you a big folder full of the next big things. They boil down a fashion season into a dozen concepts and even provide colour palettes so that textile manufacturers can start producing fabrics in the "it" colours for Summer 2013.
Here's my mood board from which I'll draw up some design developments, draft patterns, make toiles and sew up a collection. All by June. Wish me luck!
