The committee is comprised of top trends forecasters from the NellyRodi Agency (France), Elementi Moda (Italy), Doneger Creative Services (USA) as well as Ms Sachiko Inoue (Japan). Elementi Moda has designed the forum concept based on three themes: Make (rural – treasure), Create (bespoke – lyrical), and Innovate (cosmos – cyber).

To help buyers understand the trends on display in more detail, Ornella Bignami, Creative Director of Elementi Moda, will conduct three Trend Tour sessions during the first two days of the fair to further demonstrate the seasonal trend stories.

Seminars

In addition to the Trend Forum, various seminars in different themes will be held during the fair to offer more in-depth information about the upcoming trends.

Experts from the fashion industry have been invited to share the latest updates on fashion trends, including Massimo Carminati, Trend & Style Director of Peclers Paris, who will share the A/W 16-17 women’s fashion trends to inspire and guide the product innovation of next season’s ladieswear.

As well as the trend tours, Ms Bignami will also hold a seminar to elaborate on next season’s colour and fabric directions in more detail.
