Trend Analysis

Who sets trends? We all do

The real art and skill here, what is a key strategic advantage for Bishop, is organically IDENTIFYING the trends, sorting through them to find those that are relevant for a particular brand and blend them into the overall apparel branding mission. This is why we market Bishop as being BEYOND TREND.

Trends are not just what you see on the runway and out the streets, in our world of hyper-branding, all facets of apparel production come into play. Beyond just basic Fashion (fit, color, style) add things like:

  • Fiber and fabric technology
  • Trim development
  • Embellishment technique evolution
  • Ergonomic advancements
  • Technical finishes
  • Dye and print innovations

Our in-house trend research is fluid and on-going, it does not come out at fixed calendar intervals as that is counter-intuitive when you think about it.

With any design or engineering work, you can rest assured that it is all being filtered through what is happening on the front lines of fashion and technology.
