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 forecasting trends for Spring 2010 is harder than ever before because of the economic climate. A slide-show presentation attributes the difficult retail environment partly to the current fear economy. For 2010 he sees a rebirth in American values, patriotism reflected in gingham, nautical, bi-color stripes, polka-dots, brighter and two-tone colors and classic lines. He projects the end of celebrity-culture, the obsession with designers, the end of glitz and conspicuous consumption, the redefinition of luxury and effort to live the simple life, endurance of brand integrity. He argues that the industry needs a faster creation/delivery cycle and will get on the green/sustainability band wagon.
