Fashion Trend Forecasting

Fashion Trend Forecasting

Fashion and trend forecasting is a process to predict the behaviour, buying habits and inclination of the consumer during a particular time of the year.

Apart from the age, geography, or income levels of the consumer, one has to look at the occasion, mood, beliefs, and fashion cycles and predict upcoming trends.

The calculation is done as follows: Season>Target Market>Consumer>Colors>Fabrics>Silhouette>Texture>Usage
