Aren’t we just getting ready for Thanksgiving? Well…yes, but…as we know, in this business we’re always looking ahead to the upcoming season. Our Chapter helped our members stay ahead of the curve and took a look at the upcoming Spring/Summer 2014 Trends as defined by Fashion Group International (FGI) at our November 19 event at Bloomingdale’s. With close to 50 people signing up, including some students and potential new members, it was a full house. We mingled and enjoyed our social time together, and then got down to business watching the video.

Fifty minutes later, with our heads overflowing with the many trends we can expect to see next season, our expert panel took the stage and discussed their take-aways on trends in general, as well as their views on how trends play out in the Bay Area. Now all that’s left is to decipher for ourselves what we think will work best with our clients – which of course, is always individual and personal.
Thanks to all who came and supported this event!
