An Eresource Advent, Day 20

December 20, 2017

For Day 20 of our advent, we have Worth Global Style Network (WGSN), which is a unique resource that looks at trend forecasting in the areas of fashion, tradeshows, catwalk collections, trend-led graphics, interiors, business innovations in the world of fashion, product design and art in general. A separate part of WGSN is the Lifestyle and Interiors section, an additional trend forecasting service that looks at home and lifestyle industries, including vintage crafts, garden and outdoors, textiles and patterns and marketing and retail. I know very little when it comes to fashion currently, never mind in the future, so I thought I’d have a look at what’s “on trend”. As it’s nearly Christmas, I headed to an article on sequins: very festive!

I do like it when problems are resolved… WGSN is working as it should now and there should be no further issues with access.
