Our favorite designers predict the oncoming trends.
Fashion is always changing, but some people have a knack for anticipating what’s next. We asked some of our favorite designers to share their predictions for the oncoming trends that will shape the industry in the near future. Here’s what they had to say:
– Minimalism is out, maximalism is in. “I think people are tired of the same old boring neutrals and basics. They want to express themselves with bold colors, patterns, textures and accessories. I see a lot of mixing and matching, layering and clashing, creating a fun and eclectic look that reflects one’s personality.”
– Comfort is key, but not at the expense of style. “The pandemic has changed the way we dress, and I don’t think we’ll ever go back to the old normal. People want to feel comfortable in their clothes, but they also want to look good and feel confident. I think the future of fashion is about finding the balance between comfort and style, creating versatile pieces that can be worn in different occasions and settings.”
– Sustainability is not a trend, it’s a necessity. “We have to be more conscious of the impact our choices have on the environment and the people who make our clothes. I try to use organic, recycled and upcycled materials as much as possible, and to collaborate with local artisans and fair-trade suppliers. I also encourage my customers to buy less, but better quality, and to take care of their garments so they last longer.”
