We were sad to see the WGSN stopped supporting the free student use of their site’s last season forecasts. Oh well, we will survive.
There is still much to learn from their general website.. but if you need the currrent info, you pay about $5000 a year. Fair enough if you are selling things. For students (or fashion program’s) with no $$$, however, even last season’s info is no longer available. We are going to check with WGSN to find out if there is anything still available to us. Our fashion program cannot afford the college price for site access.
In the meantime, check out this article about trend spotting. Alison Taylor is a forecaster for WGSN. Alison’s day as a trendspotter is chronicled in The Guardian. This is worth a read.
