Sensing?

Trend Superforcaster is an animal that demonstrates some degree of mastery in trend forecasting. In this module, we will examine the attributes of a super forecaster as identified by Philip Tetlock and Dan Gardner in their book Superforecasting The Art & Science of prediction. And we will get to experience applying the essence of it in the realm of fashion trend forcasting.

Envisioning?

We will now elevate from the state of sensing to envisioning, where having observed the patterns of breakdowns and patterns of breakthroughs, it's time to notice the rhythms of life in these experiences and as an artist colors and embellish them into completing stories.

Generating?

We will observe how we generate our product creation in distance, time and form. And it will happen in our conversation. The distinction between description and practice is deep and fundamental. For example, your final line is like a Map which is not the territory. The sample-set is your Product in its real existence or in 3d form which you can visualise.

Adoption?

Adoption is a practice based on a commitment to solving a human-centric problem. This practice results in integrity-based innovation

Curation?

Art of Curation is about Selection, Organising and offering personalised tailored choices to help clients buy. Its is opposite of selling what you already have.

Rendering?

Its a process of pretotyping what your consumer cannot visualise and help them find what they really want

Story Telling (Show Back)?

It's a presentation curated collection ready to go to market. To understand what value it will deliver to estimate and forecast its full-price sell-through.

Trade Show (Trunk Show)?

It's a Realty Check preview of your collection to create the marketing buzz and exclusivity with an invite-only approach. The outcome of this distinction is to create consumer-generated content as part of its pre launch.
Distinguishing Envisioning

Envisioning is the ability to “See” Structures where there’s none. From building a brand to creating a Pret collection and a couture ensemble, our fashion and lifestyle world relies on structures. Just as a talented composer “hears” a sound before it’s put down on a score, a good designer and or fashion merchant is able to visualise and produce structures through combinations of design rules, trends and basic consumer sensibilities.
