Careers in Fashion: Trends Analyst
Trend Analysis is a vital component for the workplace today. Knowing and being able to observe, understand and translate what your customers’ needs and wants, means that you can cater to them. Your customers world changes daily and being able to translate their need and wants into tangible solutions can give your brand/label the edge. Trends are about observing and understanding these changing consumer worlds and being able to create solutions from that. Trends is about understanding how one thing influences the next and about making sense of the chaos that is our world. – Elizebeth Croeser, Lecturer at LISOF
