• Li Edelkoort Trend Forecast 2015

    Renowned trend forecaster Lidewij Edelkoort presents “Vanities – The Mythology of Self” – a seminar to be held in Cape Town on Saturday 28 February and Johannesburg on Monday 2 March 2015.

Every year during Design Indaba festival, internationally renowned Dutch trend forecaster Li Edelkoort presents her trend forecast for the following season. In 2015 she presents “Vanities – The Mythology of Self”, forecasting trends for Spring/Summer 2016.

Suddenly mythology is a relevant source of inspiration and at the core of this season’s forecasting study in contemporary archetypes, drawing upon muses and models and oracles to design a future of fashion with an elegant hand. Many deities are related to nature and therefore to water, air and earth; its resources play a dominant role in colours, fibres, textiles and patterns, focusing on browns, greens and blues to reverse two decades of warm colours. Yet it is a nature that is revisited by classical codes and therefore symbolised and organised in stylised movements with decorative arts sensitivity.

This trend presentation will unveil the season’s key garments, textiles and colours, giving clients a head start on an exciting moment for style.
