Q: Who will I find on the platform?
A: Our dedicated networking platform brings together fashion designers and creatives, brand owners and business leaders, businesses large and small, with the aim of building an indispensable resource of insight, support and smart solutions, and connecting people for support, feedback, ideas and opportunities. Our community is incredibly international, with members from all corners of the globe, from Sweden to Ethiopia, Canada to Columbia, Dubai to Madrid, New York to Amsterdam... What the group have in common is they are polite, positive, open-minded, innovation oriented and extremely welcoming.
Q: Many fashion professionals are now in need of trend and business resources that cater to working in isolation. How does the community address this?
A: Our community was formed in response to hundreds of emails and zoom calls with fashion professionals who are seeking support in uncertain times – some were furloughed, and are exploring freelance positions for the first time. Others are unsure about how to proceed for their next collection. Brand owners want to know how to improve sales and marketing direct to consumer. As a result, the community is designed around individuals who want to refine their trend application skills, grow sales and exchange ideas with other like-minded professionals. Our content, from the trend training videos to the live expert sessions, encourages independent development and the forging of a new professional network.
Q: Your Trend Timelines are really interesting! With premium membership, can we see the timeline of a trend in a chronological sequence?
A: Yes, some of them! The Trend Timelines are one of our most popular platform features. It allows you to follow the trajectory of a trend from early themes and concepts right through to mainstream retail examples. Snapshots Trend Timelines are included in the Premium Trend Community. This month we are sharing at 3 major trends across colour, materials and apparel.
Normally our services cost $10,000 per month for global brands and $3,000 per month for smaller brands.
But we know a new level of adjusting to the new normal is really needed in the industry, and we really want to help change the fashion industry for the better and make it more sustainable.
To help achieve this, we decided to make the Premium Trend Community Membership available for our members for under $500 a month.
We wanted this membership investment to be similar to the cost of a premium sweatshirt, so around $229 or £179 a month.
Now we want to go further, and give our members the chance to join for under $100 per month.
