A beginner's guide to fashion trend forecasting with Geraldine Wharry - Inspired by... blog I recently interviewed fashion forecaster Geraldine Wharry who has worked with and for major brands including trend forecaster WGSN. I asked her about the art of trend forecasting, and what's next for 2013/14.

I was born, raised and studied fashion in Paris but my mother's a New Yorker and my father is British. When I finished design school I immediately went to NY so I'm multi-cultural, have lived in the main fashion capitals and basically understand the global aspect of design.
