Hong Kong, Paris and of course...New York. On August 3, the trend forecasters at Stylesight are taking over the Times Center. Why? Well, you know how every year there's always an official color (it's Honeysuckle for 2011) and there's always a defined trendy look of the time? Well, that's the sort of the stuff Stylesight discusses on a level above idle brunch chatter.
Whether you're ready or not, it's high time to begin the brow-wrinkling deliberations that come with deciding the "key colors for S/S 13 and their evolution across the previous three seasons," lest we forget fashion is serious stuff. The discussions will encompass "Megatrends," the "Runway Roadmap" for menswear and womenswear, and of course the shades that'll likely hit the catwalks for 2013 collections.
The best part: This whole shindig is free to attend, but you do have to register here first. Any guesses before Stylesight spills? We've got our money on Burnt Sienna.
