Trend Prediction

Following the seminar led by Helen Howe at the LCB Depot last week, here are a few links which may be useful if you design and/or make anything which is influenced by trends (fashion, jewellery & accessories & anything for home interiors):

WGSN is the leading online trend-analysis and research service providing creative and business intelligence for the apparel, style, design and retail industries – however a subscription is very expensive for the sole trader and nothing is given away for free.

Trendstop and its blog
A slightly cheaper trend forecasting and analysis service. They also have a mobile application called Trendtracker which you can download here:

Trend Bible
Trend predictors and research consultants who tend to focus on home interiors and cross over into food, packaging and other non-fashion areas. Lots of interesting links on their blog.

Print & Pattern
A UK-based blog that celebrates all aspects of printed surface pattern including textiles, cards, gift wrap, stationery, wallpaper, tableware, books, illustration.
