Faces and Places in Fashion: David Wolfe


Part presentation, part Q&A, FIT's "Faces & Places in Fashion" lecture series is an opportunity to connect students and the public alike to the pulse of the fashion industry in an open and conversational setting.
David Wolfe, Creative Director of Doneger Design Direction, a division of the Doneger Group describes how fallout from the 2008/2009 economic crisis continues to effect fashion trends. A slide-show presentation shows colors and styles for Spring 2012 and Wolfe's commentary emphasized the need for designers to connect with consumers; the need for fashion to reflect consumers' interests and to return to real design. Wolfe predicts the end of trendiness and the end of movies influencing fashion. He says he can see the day when there will only be virtual fashion shows--that the planning and set-up of fashion runway events will become to expensive to be sustainable.
