From where the fashion trends coming from?
Trends influence our life and not just in clothing, but all things that surround us. in instance an art, design, architecture, technology… Trends are coming from everything that humankind got through. Every year the designers and artists are inspired by trends. But from where the recent trends are coming from and what do they symbolize? Is is a mother nature herself, which control the whole world?
Trends are reflecting recent process, progress and development in today’s society.
1. Recent actions:
Can be any greater event in near future. For example World Cup in Brasil or popular movie, political or economic situations, globalization and culture, climate, increasing global population and fast growing architecture, celebrities, actors styles (good example is Beyonce’s new ‘visual’ album and her amazing stylisation), new music genres, recent society’s philosophy- ‘think green’, become vegetarians (footwear and clothing companies using less and less leather and fur products and replacing leather with pvc materials), digital media(blogs, news).
2.Innovation in technology:
In the last decade the society is undergoing rapid rise in technical and scientific innovation:
Holographic Surface: I found out that its why there are trends with soft, sheer and iridescent colours in the last few years. Holography is a combination of fantasy and real life, futurism and science fiction. Hi –tech gadgets containing functioning holographic qualities that appeal to be a future. Its visual complexity, 3D visualization and advanced computer engineering will reflect on creating products- faster, more accurate and cost effective software programs for better rendering products. We might also see finished materials with inconporating holographic elements. Also 3D Hologram movies when the computer shoots the holographic pixels/’hogels’ electronically to another location
3D Hologram fashion show: which creates an optical illusion and breaks the rules of time and space on show that are replacing conventional presentations.
3. DNA, Molecular Structure
As long as we exist we strive to be harmonized with mother nature. New coming trends in the future is Biomimicry-a biological system where artificiality, engineering and nature comes together. Its inspiration by synthetic and organic life forms, a combination of nature and modern technology, inspired by patterns in nature.
It’s benefical to society as it means being ecologically conscious (water purification, energy needs, reduce waste on minimum,no pollution. ‘’Its an urge for change in the way society is consuming and directing on which way should go/think’’and its about practical with time and money. ‘Because of significantly increased manufacturing the society is shifting into an ‘ecological age. Biomimicry means translate nature designs into solving human problems. (http://www.ellenmacarthurfoundation.org/news/frog-chooses-biomimicry-as-tech-trend-for-2012)
4. 3D Printing :
3D printing has become recently popular mainly in creative industries to produce a fast prototype for testing. However the production , material remains expensive, therefore its popularity in the future is questionable.
