FASHION vs. SOCIAL TRENDS

Fashion is the only one true informer, showing even small pieces from political to cultural movements of the history. Today, fashion continues to play its role, reflecting the reality and meeting the needs of consumers, and the main task of the designers was balancing on a tight fishing line between commerce and creativity. The extra step to the left or right can mean a complete failure of the whole collection, so the marketers who study social trends and customer needs, began to play a major role in the fashion industry. So in this article, I decided to find out, how the designers adjust their collections to current social movements and trends.

TRENDS AND TENDENCIES FALL | WINTER 2016

As you may all know, trends are very impermanent – season by season, year by year.

BOHO: Style of the eternal feminine

Coachella is far behind now, but the summer is finally here. So why don't we add some more trendy Boho style in our summer looks? Because Boho mood – it is always a wonder and discovery, creativity and freedom, and, of course, the flight of fantasy. Boho has nothing in common with the clean lines and office dress codes. This most feminine style is intrinsically connected with open-minded and creative person who is independent of fashion and glamour, but looks very fashionable and well-dressed.
