The Trend Portal

The Trend Portal

Market research, design briefs and color direction provided to support you in your creative process. Whether you are looking for inspiration, direction or just a different perspective, we can help. Be sure you join the email list for your weekly dose of inspiration.


No matter how much we all LOVE to pour over the runway while doing endless market research…if you are like so many designers out there, sometimes having a little support or an outside perspective can really allow you to free up time and focus on design!

Need an extra boost of creative direction for your collections?

The portal will be updated monthly with new inspiration, market trends, runway reactions and color direction dependent upon the season

Yes, color cards with pantone call outs will be include each month with a focus on seasonless color direction.
