"The big trends for 2008 is a repetition of themes, a focus on vintage, and a heavy influence from the past. In other words, what is old is new again," David Wolfe, the creative director of The Doneger Group, a fashion-forecasting firm in NYC, was quoted by Forbes.
Speaking of old, David is 70! But just 'cause he's older than my granny's underpants, doesn't mean he can't spot the next fashion trend! In fact, it gives him years of qualification.
Here is his list for 2008:
1. Neon Hues
2. Punk's Not Dead
3. Rich Is Cool
4. Short Shorts For Men
5. Estate Accessories
6. Eco-Friendly Material
7. Beijing Rules
8. Clothing Transformed
9. The '60s Are Back
10. Super-Skinny Ties
