Last week a Member of The Trend Curve‘s subscriber family asked me about the best way to use our Haute Halloween and Fall™ forecast. Like all our seasonal color-and-trend collections, Haute Halloween and Fall™ 2016 has been fashioned with creative freedom in mind. You can dig into every detail of our expert guidance on developing trend-right assortments, or you can let our ideas inspire the best of your own creativity.
If you want detail, this forecast package has plenty of it! Each Trend Card (one for each of the 11 trends in HHF) is covered with the fine points of the style. We recommend shapes, materials, motifs and embellishments, and we show you four images to reinforce the message. Then, we provide a dedicated color story with volume-selling, accent and fashion-forward colors called out. You get everything you need to create the look!
But some of our creative colleagues don’t want the detail, just the inspiration. They want Halloween, Thanksgiving and autumn trends that are customized to their unique perspective. That’s why we spend so much time naming each trend and selecting their four images so carefully. We know these elements will serve as catalysts for your ideas!
Either way, you get The Trend Curve’s forecast for the season’s on-trend materials/textures/motifs/details, a color palette of paint-on-paper swatches, PLUS insights about which colors to combine for cutting-edge looks. You can apply your own unique vision of how to put it all together, or you can let our 11 styles and 32 fall colors become your product-development roadmap.
However you chose to use it, Haute Halloween and Fall™ is all you need to work your own special magic on fall assortments.
