The best way to understand the consumers’ needs and therefore predict fashion trends is through market research. There are two research methods: primary and secondary. Secondary methods are taking other information that has already been collected, for example using a book or an article for research. Primary research is collecting data through surveys, interviews, observation, and/or focus groups.
The proof that side-stripe trousers are no longer unacceptable for grown-ups was the fact that luxury designers went absolutely mad for them this season. There were skinny versions at Balmain, Prada showed them coordinating tops, while Valentino went straight-up retro sportswear. Basically, if you haven’t got lines down your legs for SS18, you’re not doing menswear right.
According to Trump’s son, Eric, his father doesn’t drink and bought the property because “wine’s sexy.” In so doing, Trump joined the ranks of a relatively new class in America, the “lifestyle vintner,” a type of hobbyist investor who makes money in another field and then buys into wine, mostly for the social and financial cachet. Trump is but the most famous of them; the owners of thousands of smaller enterprises across the country—wine’s now made in every state in the union—qualify as well.
Description For the boys of 1952, fashion dictated bold colors in bright check patterns and fun plaids. The “dickey” pullover and the “vestee” pullover were perfect complements to any outfit for teenage boys. While corduroy playsuits and rayon shirts and longies were great for casual wear, small three and four piece suits were great for formal occasions.
Kids have so much adventure to experience and so many lessons to learn that plaids and polka dots shouldn’t even register on the radar. Let them get paint in their hair, sand in their shoes. Let them make mud pies with their best friends. Kids get one shot at childhood. They can’t relive it nor can they have a do-over. Imagine the time and money you would save if you stopped caring about your toddler’s color combinations and pattern matches. The possibilities are endless and your child will love you for it. Really.
Clothing this advanced just might guarantee a lady the center of attention, in most rooms—even if she lacks charm, looks, and substance. It is the haberdashery equivalent of a Maserati; people are likely to be a bit hypnotized, no matter how unspectacular the driver may be.
The 1940s were notable for the popularization for the wedge or wedgie. The wedge sole was all one piece, gave moderate height and was considered safer than tall pumps. They came in solid slip-ons or fun summer sandal types. The peep toe was one common style. It was a small slit in the front of the toe. Peep toes could be seen on pumps, sandals and wedges.
In recent years, Asian fashion has become increasingly significant in local and global markets. Countries such as China, Japan, India, and Pakistan have traditionally had large textile industries, which have often been drawn upon by Western designers, but now Asian clothing styles are also gaining influence based on their own ideas.
Among all the duds—the desperate and depressed and not-quite-divorced—a 45-year-old man named Richie Peterson stood out. He was a career naval officer, an Afghanistan veteran who was finishing his doctorate in political science at the University of Minnesota. When Missi “liked” his profile, he sent her a message right away and called her that afternoon. They talked about their kids (he had two; she had three), their divorces, their sobriety. Richie told her he was on vacation in Hawaii, but they planned to meet up as soon as he got back.
Sarah Coonan, head of buying for beauty, home and children’s at luxury department store Liberty London, notes that Prince George’s championing of simple, quintessentially childlike styles has sparked a wider across the entire industry, bolstering independent, established brands and the high street rather than high fashion. “I think there is a shifting aesthetic towards something more traditional”, she says. “Prince George has definitely been a factor in this changing aesthetic, particularly in the growth we’ve seen in terms of classic brands”.

An alterations specialist (alterationist) adjusts the fit of completed garments, usually ready-to-wear, and sometimes re-styles them. NOTE: despite tailors altering garments to fit the client, not all alterationists are tailors.
The key to making side stripes work without looking like Sporty Spice is balance. Yes, you can wear trainers with them, but you’ll need to add a smart knit or a slim-fit shirt to stop the ‘I socialise at bus stops’ vibes.

For Luar, Raul Lopez, a founder of Hood by Air, makes minidresses and thigh-highs for men, as well as too-long-on-purpose T-shirts and shorts. His clothes don’t challenge gender; they’re postgender. July 13, noon, Cadillac House, 330 Hudson Street
The 1930s were hard times for families. The clothing available did not always reflect these hard times except for the price. Little girls dresses looked like mom’s with natural or empire waists, knee length, rounded white collars and a matching sash tied in a bow. Many had ruffles on the hemline too. They were always colorful small prints and cheerful solid colors of sky blue, coral pink, golden yellow and jade green. As girls grew up hemlines dropped to mid shin and colors darkened. Black mary jane shoes were worn by all little girls.
What Did Women Wear in the 1940s? In a nutshell, 1940s women’s fashion was about creating a certain silhouette: wide padded shoulders, nipped in high waist tops, and A-line skirts that came down to the knee. This was the everyday shape for clothing, from suits to dresses. Even pants had a similar shape. 1940s fashions were all about the hour glass figure with broad shoulders, tiny waists and full hips. If you were not naturally an hour glass shape, the clothes were designed to help you achieve the look.
Growing up loafers always reminded me of something that Alex P. Keaton would sport. Years later it seemed like it was part of the traditional wardrobe of the IT department. But times they-are-a-changing and the loafers this season are debuting in a variety of colors (like blue and cognac) and materials (suede and leather). Don’t […]
Teddy coats are a particular style of faux fur coat that we predict you’ll see everywhere in 2018. Think of them as coats made with teddy bear fur. They’ve got the warmth, style and texture of faux fur, but with an extra kick of coziness.
Cozy corduroy is making a comeback in 2018, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. After all, corduroy is basically just a textured form of velvet, and you know we love velvet. Better still, corduroy is a perfect trouser to transition between workwear and weekend wear.
In the USSR during the mid to late 1960s, Mods and Hippies were nicknamed Hairies for their mop top hair. As with the earlier Stilyagi in the 1950s, young Russian men who dressed this way were ridiculed in the media, and sometimes forced to get their hair cut in police stations.
This stylish mix of a modern robe, a traditional kimono and a proper coat has been a surprisingly fashionable and well-accepted trend since the last summer. A fancier, single-coloured version of last year’s waist-length flowery frocks totally worth bringing down from the runways that it is ruling this. They are slouchy, roomy and lightweight. Though thrown in with these summer trench coats, just for the sake of it, belts, especially a medium-size obi belt, with a knot in the side, can complete the look.
Shifting gears from the street’s athleisure boom, there’s a prettier, softer mood in the air, and girls who like to dress up will be thrilled. Minimalists and tomboys have plenty to choose from too: Next year is trouser suit and flat-shoe heaven. Keep reading to discover S/S 18’s fashion trends, from colours to prints and key pieces to new details.

Description For girls in 1964, drop-waist style dresses and two piece dresses proved popular fashion pieces. Stripes, bright and bold colors, and floral prints were fashionable. Tapered slacks and pullovers were great for casual wear, while dresses with bows and floral detail were good for formal wear.
Ms. Riley said, “Children have big tummies and stand in funny ways.” Although she has made one or two concessions to popular tastes, like making her ballet flats in nail-varnish colors, she remains fixed in her view that children should be children and not little brand ambassadors or, in the current parlance, “prostitots.” She said: “I can’t bear advertising on children. And why would a child need to have anything remotely sexy? To me, it’s unethical.”

Fringed buck-skin vests, flowing caftans, the “lounging” or “hostess” pajamas were also popular. “Hostess” pajamas consisted of a tunic top over floor-length culottes, usually made of polyester or chiffon. Long maxi coats, often belted and lined in sheepskin, appeared at the close of the decade. Animal prints were popular for women in the autumn and winter of 1969. Women’s shirts often had transparent sleeves. Psychedelic prints, hemp and the look of “Woodstock” emerged during this era.

The definition of a miniskirt is a skirt with a hemline that is generally between 6 and 7 inches above the knees. Early references to the miniskirt from the Wyoming newspaper The Billings Gazette, described the miniskirt as a controversial item that was produced in Mexico City. During the 1950s, The miniskirt began appearing in science fiction films like Flight to Mars and Forbidden Planet
