Fall 2012 Trend Alert-Fashion Zoo
Best Personal Stylist Gabrielle Teare says Forget about “ animalier” motifs and cheesy knit sweaters .
Elegant and stylish are the tiger, zebra and owl. The stars of next winter. This trend has been wonderfully executed by the luxury fashion houses giving it a sophisticated look. Witty animals have popped up in many FALL 2012 runaway shows.
At Mulberry’s “ Where the Wild Things Are “ themed show saw models walking between 10-foot whimsical creatures . Now they are even featured in the A/ W 2012-13 ad campaign with Lindsey Wixson photographed by Tim Walker !!!

I am Giorgia Musci, a freelance Trends & Colors Forecaster / Creative consultant, living between Italy and the UK.
My job is based on creating trends reports, moodboads & colors palette through a 360° socio- cultural analysis( news, art, fashion, music, cultural events) , fashion & trade shows, sourcing samples & textiles all over the world, and street spotting- essential!
Since I was child my curiosity led me to sourcing in vintage & flea markets, books and magazines, going to exhibitions, gigs, and cultural events.
Being amazed and inspired by colors, people and styles from all over the world.
My favorite pastime has always been spotting people on the streets, so it is no wonder I found myself within the field of trends forecasting and fashion.
