Next week, on the 15th May, Li Edelkoort will be presenting her trend concepts for colour, fashion and lifestyle at the Cine Lumiere, Institut Francais in South Kensington. For those of you who have maybe attended one of my lectures on forecasting, you may well have seen me getting all starry eyed when talking about Li and Trend Union. The simplest way of putting it is that I think Li Edekoort is a genius. To me, she is one of the most gifted and inspirational individuals I have ever come across.
Trend Union is synonymous with creating globally impactful, highly creative, deeply informed and most essentially, reliable forecasting information. If you work in fashion, home, beauty or any lifestyle related field, you would probably wish to attend one of her presentations or purchase one of the many inspirational publications that Trend Union produce.
I’ll be there next week, and am hoping to also get to talk with Li- if I can calm myself sufficiently, you’ll get to read the interview soon after. KM Associates, the UK agents for Trend Union, have also incredibly generously offered a limited number of students the opportunity to attend this event for a deeply reduced price. If you are a student and would like to try and grab one of those places, then contact Geoff on firstname.lastname@example.org, mentioning the “Blink” blog.
Looking forward to seeing you there…
