Do you want to integrate trend forecasting into your creative practice? Are you curious about the intriguing ‘soft science’ greatly impacting the style industry? Are you a student, consultant, educator, marketer or simply curious?

The School of Art Design and Performance welcomes Geraldine Wharry, an expert in design trends, consumer behaviour and future markets.

“Geraldine Wharry’s global experience as a fashion designer and trend forecaster has led her to collaborate across the style industry in fashion, beauty, innovation, technology, marketing and retail for leading brands, agencies and institutions.”

She is a unique futurist, a polymath, equipped with the vision of a forecaster, the craft of a designer and the relentless curiosity of a scientist.

Her reputation for accurately predicting trends and designing successful fashion collections comes from an unwavering ability to research and define what’s new.
