OK, this one is a bit silly.
However, I could not resist adding to our terms directory
the fashion term "Europe Fashion Trend Trap".
Today I wrote a blog post at the Fashion Industry
fashion trends. In the post, I
accidentally developed a new term that I thought
sort of makes sense...
Europe Fashion Trend Trap
: The Europe Fashion Trend Trap is thinking that
hot fashion trends in Europe will also sell well in
the United States. Often, fashion designers
from the United States travel to Europe to
investigate fashion trends. They return to the
USA with garment bags full of samples and stories of
their shopping adventures... When all is said
and done, the designers meet with their design teams
and company management and develop their collection.
Much of which is based off the samples they
purchased over seas. The Europe Fashion Trend
Trap comes into play, when a USA designer falls into
the trap of believing that a style will do well
simply because the garment sold well in Europe.
The fact of the matter is that Milan and Chicago
each have a unique taste in fashion.
If you are taking a trend
spotting trip to Florence or any other European
location, be careful not to fall into the trap..
