Editd aims to spot the trends the fashion world doesn't | Technology Data is the key to tracking any sort of trend. London-based Editd takes a big data approach to fashion trends. It collects and analyses retail sales numbers, catwalk photographs, and fashion buzz from social media, and then adds its own secret data. That produces unique data-driven insights into what's happening in the fashion world for clothing retailers across the UK, US, South Africa, Australia, and China, informing fashion buyers about what's hot and what's not. Founded in London in 2009 by a programmer, Geoff Watts, and a fashion designer, Julia Fowler, who both moved from Australia to start the company, Editd's clients include fashion buyers for the likes of Asos, Gap, and Target, who use the fashion intelligence data to inform their purchases of clothing lines, brands and accessories, to see what's selling and what isn't. The march towards mobile devices has also affected how Editd does business. Editd's data-driven approach isn't exclusively aimed at the fashion mainstream.
Hong Kong Designer Joseph Li Is Asking: Beijing or Shanghai? At the moment, there is only one question on the mind of Joseph Li: Should he base his business in Beijing—or Shanghai? The 35-year-old designer, a Hong Kong native who currently lives and works there, hasn’t made up his mind definitely, though it’s Beijing that’s emerging as the front-runner. What this 2005 graduate of Central Saint Martins in London never thought about doing was establishing his two-seasons-old label, Lijoseph, in Europe, or the United States. “I want to be a Chinese designer in China,” Li said Saturday afternoon during a visit to his 20th-floor studio in a high-rise complex on Hollywood Road, a stretch of Hong Kong famed for its antique stores. “There is so much culture and history there; it’s so inspiring.” He’s not alone. Also, Li hopes, for the likes of him—both at home and abroad.

Small labels lure big bucks in fashion's latest trend Fashion Designer Helen Lee on How Art Influences her Designs | BLOUIN ARTINFO Helen Lee is one of the great successes of contemporary Chinese fashion. A graduate of Lasalle International Design College, Helen Lee spent two years honing her craft in Japan before returning to China to establish her own brand insh, which was started ten years ago in an old loft space at Tianzifang. Short for “in Shanghai”, her sporty, jubilant pieces were inspired by Shanghai’s dynamic and cosmopolitan history. In 2008, Lee evolved from insh’s youthful edge to create more sophisticated, chic looks under her self-titled brand, Helen Lee. While Lee is clearly passionate about fashion, she first dreamed of becoming an artist, and many of her designs are inspired by Chinese contemporary artists’ works. How do you describe the different styles of insh and Helen Lee? insh was a young brand meant to represent Shanghai’s culture. As a fashion designer, do you pay close attention to trends? I do, but that’s just part of my concern. I designed two elements to represent this idea.
My Paper Crane Here it is nearing the end of April and I forgot to blog about the Bag Of The Month bag for March! As you can see I ended up having a sad photoshoot in my car one afternoon while I was waiting to pick up my son after school. I have actually been using this bag all month long. The fabric was one I saw on Pinterest and fell in love with Ring Around The Rosie by Michael Miller. When I found it about a year ago it had already been out for awhile, but a search of the name and there are still plenty of shops that have it for sale. I bought two yards and have been saving them for something special. My friend Olivia had been texting me photos of her planners, and it’s made me really want one of my own. to iron images onto leather. As you may remember from last week, my friend Jessee and I decided to start challenging each to draw more each week. April’s crafternoon was hosted by Katie at her home in West Virginia. Easter Sunday was a nice relaxed day spent mostly at home.
