  • Your comment about the fashion Illuminati reminded me of WGSN, who are basically that in a cyberpunk dystopian way. I heard about them from 99PI (ep and article here: http://99percentinvisible.org/episode/the-trend-forecast/).

    I think a lot of trend following comes from a desire (if I can make this distinction) not to conform, exactly, but to manage the ways we stand out. So it takes less of a deviation to make a statement. Of course this would be easier to manage if fashion didn’t keep changing the default settings on us…
