Trend Expert Keynote Speaker Jeremy Gutsche knows how to sort through the noise and focus on what's important. More infomation is available to consumers and businesses than ever before thanks to the Internet, but it's hard to cherry pick what is really going to be relevant and have an impact on the future. This is why Gutsche created TrendHunter.com, the world's largest collection of cutting edge trends, which fuels the brand's professional Trend Report research.
As Gutsche states in his innovation book Exploiting Chaos, "Iconic fashion designers don't craft their ideas around a boardroom table. Despite being tremendously creative, they actively seek inspiration. They look for ideas in other industries, like design, architecture, pop culture, music and art."
Our interviews with various fashion designers and top business professionals have proven this theory correct. One of the world's most influential designers, Diane Von Furstenburg (who is a big fan of Trend Hunter), stated in one of her interviews with us that her collections are routinely inspired by nature, architecture and women.
