Event description

Description

The fashion trend forecasting industry is probably responsible for what you are wearing today. Forecasters predict the shapes, colours and sentiments that are going to appeal to consumers for years to come, and often act as insurance for the brands and retailers who buy their advice.

The industry hasn’t escaped the influence of technology, with dominant players like WGSN and Stylus now competing with tech startups. Join us for a panel discussion featuring the incumbents, start-ups and brands to learn what fashion trend forecasting is, who is driving the industry today and why retailers think it’s important.
