Lifestyle by Lidewij Edelkoort .....................

Hi,all my dear friends!
Hope your week going good:-)*

The last time I am impressed by this fascinating person....
Lidewij Edelkoort.

From her creation of innovative trend books and audiovisuals since the 1980s to lifestyle analysis and research conducted for the world’s leading brands today, Lidewij has pioneered trend forecasting as a profession.

She announces the concepts, colours and materials which will be in fashion two or more years in advance because as she claims, « there is no creation without advance knowledge, and without design, a product cannot exist. » In this way, she and her closely-knit teams orient her clients, creative professionals, in interpreting the evolution of society and the signals of consumer tastes to come, without forgetting economic reality.
Edelkoort Editions produces its own trend publications.
In collaboration with highly-talented stylists and photographers these inspirational tools become sophisticated image banks for creatives all around the world.

In 2003, TIME magazine named her one of the world’s 25 most influential people in fashion. In 2004, she was awarded the Netherlands’ Grand Seigneur prize for her work in fashion and textile. More recently in February 2008, Lidewij was awarded the Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication.


Other key trends at a glance:
  Wool: washed, skinned, tweed, fabrics and blanket gepild
Maxi: dresses, long coats and duffel large knitted sweaters
hoods and capes
• Shirts (for men and women)

Hi Violetta,

Like you I saw her on 'zomergasten'last Sunday as well. She is a really special person as well. It almost made me wish I had been one of her students at the design academy. She is so full of inspiration!

Enjoy your week!
