The project will be coordinated by Francesca Tottoli and Anna Rogg, from IED Business Hub. The project involves a working team composed by WGSN, the leading trend forecaster, IED, the representative of the international network of advanced education in design, fashion and visual communication, and David Shah, a leading design and marketing consultant and a long time collaborator of MarediModa.

Trend proposals

The IED team will be made up of a group of students led by a team of professional fashion and design professors, including cool hunters, graphic designers, video makers, interior designers and illustrators from IED – Milan Visual Communication, Fashion and Design school.

This cooperation will be developed at different levels. WGSN will propose four main beachwear themes and two themes for underwear for Spring/Summer 2017. It will be up to IED Team to develop and complete these macro trends through ideas, tips and remarks.

The cooperation with David Shah will help trace the sociological background which influences trends for 2017 in terms of style and colour.

Educating experience

The project will take off on 2 April 2015 in Milan with a press conference and a round table of all participants and MarediModa.

Fours students coming from IED school group (Rome, Turin, Venice, Como, Florence, Cagliari, San Paolo, Rio de Janeiro, Barcelona and Madrid) will also be invited to join the Milan team in a full immersion day workshop.

Students will be selected through an assessment process by IED Business Hub, in attempt to offer the IED students, located in different parts of the world, the opportunity to gain some international professional and educating experience.
