Glasgow's The Lighthouse was the location of Anne Ritchie's presentation on Fashion and Textile Trends for the Spring/Summer 2012 season, Anne has worked in the textile and fashion industry since 1982 and has an extensive knowledge of both the global and the Scottish textile, fashion and accessory industry – from design and product development to market research and promotional activity.
The Trend Presentation highlighted the upcoming Textile Trends for the Spring/Summer 2012 season. The presentation included fashion, knitwear, accessories and interior trends 18mths in advance to assist design and product planning and helped me greatly.
The presentation was really useful for my work in that my colours, print, knit and weave can be aimed towards a much more commercial output and we received a useful book giving an insight into all the most exciting details.
The presentation was also a great opportunity to network with other textile businesses and creative designers in Scotland and was a worthwhile visit.
