Some things are just made for the bright lights of the runway.

All fashion classes can benefit from checking into Trendhunter Magazine  There is just so much on the site to read and, of course, it is constantly being updated.  But especially FSHD 1311 – Fashion History has to surf over to read some intriguing articles loaded with great photos.

Talk about updating Elizabethan pleated collars . . .

Another current Microtrend for Taxidermy is a great example of worshipping in fashion the things we are missing in our life.  You can find many pictures of the trend and a short article at Trendhunter.

While you are at Trendhunter, click on Keynotes to read about  Jeremy Gutsche, who studied innovation at Stanford and has worked in the worlds of strategy, innovation and business management.  Now, Jeremy has created Trendhunter and he is taking trendhunting to new levels.

While on the page about Jeremy, scroll down and watch Trend Hunter TV – Top 20 Trends in 2009

There are loads of Trendhunter TV episodes (each about three minutes long) like this episode on Mind Boggling Customization and many more… scroll all the way to the bottom of the page.

Try to check out the story Jeremy is telling BNN – Business News Network.  This interview may explain why we study Desmond Morris and his chimpanzee, Congo.  (Hint: this point is made right at the end of the interview when Jeremy talks about baboons.)  Think about it.  This video is a live feed on Jeremy’s page and it cannot be linked here, so go surf the site.

And try not to miss Jean Paul Gaultier’s Animalistic Fall 2008 – Savage Style and think about humans’ early relationship to animals and their skins.
