Building Your Jewelry Collection —Translating the Trends (1) Session
The business of trend forecasting is an integral part of jewelry design. To evolve a collection, it is essential for designers to know where the market is going, since each year is notable for distinct accessories trends. This course helps designers understand, identify, and translate future trends that can be used to create a successful line.
Students will learn how to draw from a variety of sources to identify windows of design opportunity. They will not only learn how to identify an upcoming trend, but how to set the trends according to inspiration and innovation found elsewhere, such as: art shows, home décor, fashion, furniture, and the news.
For some, jewelry follows fashion choices, enhancing an outfit for work or play. For others, it is a form of self-expression and identifies the wearer openly with a value, view, or cause. By the end of this course, you’ll be equipped to create a collection that aligns trends with a client’s style and budget.
