I believe it was May of last year when Ms. Leak pulled out her TOBE reports and we chatted about what was to come. I probably should have been more aware of what was in sight for Spring 2011, but I was very busy at the time with my other job and worrying about whether or not I was ever going to have a career in design! Sooo we turned to the experts - trend forecasters.
The TOBE report was right on! When I was told that there was going to be this HUGE nordic trend coming for last fall, I was a little skepical...quite honestly didn't really even know what the word Nordic meant or translated to in relation to fashion and apparel. However, I open Vogue for one of the early Fall issues and the Dolce add is nothing but beautiful Scandinavian Models in snow gear and fair isle knits.
