10/15/2012 Whitney Watt 0 Comments


Last Tuesday I went to a local event in Indianapolis - The Trend Report with Fran Yoshioka, presented by Pattern, a fashion networking community I am apart of. Fran, a global trend-tracker and fashion analyst, is known for her consulting services and interpreting the bigger picture. I definitely witnessed this at her presentation. She went through all the details of what we need to know about the trends for Fall 2013 (she's a whole year ahead)! I was definitely excited to learn about what there is to come for next year, so I took notes to share with you! Here are some highlights:


Theme: Equilibrium

"The sky is no longer the limit... Or do we need to get back to earth?"

Fran talked about how trends reflect the future (things unknown) as well as look back for inspiration. It's about finding a different place to get creative. I interpreted this as always finding ways to reinvent or refresh things - for example, taking something old and finding a new way to mix it up in a modern way.

Ingredients (Trends)
