There's nothing constant in the world of fashion. The ever-changing nature of the business creates new trends, styles and hallmarks that make it difficult to pinpoint cultural shifts and predict future "firsts." One day we're rocking Pharrell hats hats, and the next day we hate Pharrell hats. One day we're frothing to be front row at New York Fashion Week, and the next day we're streaming it from our laptops. Do we still care what Vogue says? Do blogs have sway in pushing fashion forward? Why is Kanye telling us that we need more leather jogging pants?

To make sense of it all, we hooked up with the Vodafone Firsts program, and had two of Trend Hunter's top influencers discuss what they're currently seeing in fashion and asked them to share thoughts on what's up next.

Watch the video above to hear about cultural collisions, the rise of the blogger and how the economy of the fashion industry is forcing top designers to be more creative with their lines, campaigns and budgets. We also encourage you to head over to Vodafone Firsts to share you big "firsts" and what you think is up next.
