About Me


As a trend forecaster, educator and writer, my expertise includes trend prediction, consumer insights, sustainability, brand strategy and product development. Endlessly curious, and customer-obsessed, I strive for successful innovation through the combination of ideas and research.

Through lecturing, I teach prospective fashion business professionals how to innovate and thrive in the fashion industry, and to develop new ideas through creative thinking. I bring my expertise in trend forecasting and sustainable innovation to the fashion business environment, to link new campaigns and products with current and future macro trends. 

I continue to build on my 10 years’ experience in trend forecasting with freelance projects that exercise my abilities to research, write and compile tailored trend forecasting reports for global brands. These include macro trends, colour reports, retail and trade show reporting for interiors and visual merchandising, interviews with beauty industry experts, youth tribe fashion trends, consumer reports, the future of work, and many more.
