On 28th of March 2019, Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC) organized a fashion forecast seminar in association with WGSN, under export promotion activities. AEPC invited Ms. Kim Mannino, Director of Trend and consultant from WGSN, UK to guide various people about the upcoming fashion trends of spring summer 2020 and autumn winter 2020. JD Institute of Fashion Technology along with its faculty members were invited to attend the session.
During the presentation, Kim provided insights on current and upcoming trends, key shapes, silhouettes, textures, fabrics, materials, and colors for women’s wear and men’s wear. She mentioned about the three major themes of the year; Code Create, Empower Up and Design Emotion.
The Themes comprised of the smart future in clothing, nature connectivity, activism, energy dressing, and time travel in fashion. The seminar was followed by an interactive session where the lead speaker answered all the trend related questions coming from the audience and a separate area was dedicated to the mood boards related to the themes for better clarity of knowledge.
