Technology plays a large role in most aspects of today’s society. Technological influences are growing more apparent in the fashion industry. Advances and new developments are shaping and creating current and future trends.
Long vests, which the designers have been playing around with for some seasons now, are perfect for the pre-fall season, particularly because pre-fall is the season for outerwear that you have been so excited about. An alternative for the 70’s jackets and blazers, long vests have a slimming effect on the body, especially when left unbuttoned. They can be worn in the late summer September on their own, showing off the bare arms, with sweater when it gets colder, or even used for a layered look.
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.
I don’t believe children’s fashion is an important part of life. Of all the things we want our kids to enjoy, looking cool shouldn’t be one of them. Parents can be vain and we often see our children as a reflection of ourselves — from behavior to grades to fashion, the moms and dads at the park are silently judging each other based on their kids. But there is a lesson we should have learned before becoming parents: “Those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.”
Runway show is a reflection of fashion trend and a designer’s thought. For designer like Vivienne Westwood, runway show is a platform for her voice on politics and current events. For her AW15 menswear show, according to Water, “where models with severely bruised faces channeled eco-warriors on a mission to save the planet.” Another recent example is a staged feminist protest march for Chanel’s SS15 show, rioting models chanting words of empowerment with signs like “Feminist but feminine” and “Ladies first.” According to Water, “The show tapped into Chanel’s long history of championing female independence: founder Coco Chanel was a trailblazer for liberating the female body in the post-WWI era, introducing silhouettes that countered the restrictive corsets then in favour.”
What Westbrook won’t compromise is his brand soul—and that includes his belief that fashion should be accessible to everyone. This is why, in addition to his Barneys line, Westbrook has also become campaign creative director for the True Religion denim brand, which sells $200 jeans. Two days after the Givenchy show, he’s greeting a line of fans that stretches out the door of the True Religion store in SoHo. “It’s important for me to stay close to my roots,” he says. “I wasn’t always able to afford shirts that cost $2,000. I want to be able to relate to the people I grew up around, the people in my neighborhood, inner-city kids, anyone who wants to dress nice and might not have money. Mixing high and low gives people a sense of how to do it without spending too much.”
Getting on board requires subtlety, something lost on practically every printed shirt wearer to date. Seek out designs in pared-back colour palettes and combine with dark tailored chinos or jeans to nail the look. Even if the weather doesn’t play ball this year, the outlook for your summer wardrobe should be totally and utterly tropical.
Due to the influence of mod bands like the Beatles or the Rolling Stones, mop-top hairstyles were most popular for white Hispanic men during the mid 60s. The mod haircut began as a short version around 1963 through 1964, developed into a longer style worn during 1965–66, and eventually evolved into an unkempt hippie version worn during the 1967–69 period and into the early 1970s. Facial hair, evolving in its extremity from simply having longer sideburns, to mustaches and goatees, to full-grown beards became popular with young men from 1966 onwards.
Thus, the fashion show—titled “How to Discover America in Style”—awkwardly combined a tribute to Seventh Avenue with the president’s pet project. While the U.S. Marine Band played, models walked a white-carpeted runway set up in the State Dining Room. Shots of Mount Rushmore, the Grand Canyon and other U.S. tourist destinations flashed on a screen behind them. Several of the outfits displayed were conspicuously red, white and blue. “The fashion show has become an instrument of economic policy,” the Washington Post observed.

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.

Neither Ms. Ferrara nor Mr. Rosen was all that impressed with the Gucci dress. Pointing to a side seam, where the print didn’t match up, he said, “On their main line, they would have never done something like this.” Ms. Ferrara said, “This would have all matched.” She noticed places on the inside where seams were puckered, known as roping. “The handling could be better,” she said. (A spokesman for Gucci, which makes its clothes in Italy, said the unmatched pattern was a design decision rather than a defect and that the company would need to see the dress to judge the roping properly.)
Most French fashion houses are in Paris, which is the capital of French fashion. Traditionally, French fashion is chic and stylish, defined by its sophistication, cut, and smart accessories. French fashion is internationally acclaimed.
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.

Nobody therefore is more surprised than us that we’re fully into the idea of tropical print shirts for SS18. And, oddly enough, it was Paris (definitely not tropical) that embraced the trend most warmly with Louis Vuitton in particular making us sit bolt upright and admit we were wrong.
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.
