FIDM Students learn how to use the Trend Forecasting Resources in FIDM’s Libraries to research trends in Beauty, Textiles, Colors, and more for class projects. We wanted to share with you a few of the trends we’re seeing for Spring/Summer 2015.
Continuing this series, we are sharing our second trend insight from trend books Doneger and Promostyl: Easy Living, Open Air, Decorous, and Evening Bloom.
Let's start with beauty: we're continuing to focus more on a natural face with strong detailed finishes this coming season. An impeccable translucent foundation smooths out the face and allows the natural colors to show forth all while removing redness and other blemishes. Bold brows and thick lashes are details we focus on in this trend.
Focusing on Fashion: Nothing says Spring like flowers in bloom! An accessories trend are floral head crowns. Varying from thickness, color, and even how you can position them on the head are what make this trend simple, feminine, and effortlessly stunning.
Embellishments and decor on outfits is the fashion focus this season. Bejeweled or lacey dresses, fully beaded sweatshirts, floral applique, pearl, and fringe. The Spring will be decorative and divided between two extremes: subtle touches vs over the top accumulations.
We'll be seeing lots of loose fitted dresses like gypsy tunics with lace applique and a fringe trim, lace babydoll with scalloped edges, pointelle and rib knit trim sweaters, and a Marrakesh's pant with a wrap front and tie closure.
