International trends forecaster and ABSOLUT VISI Designer of the Year judge, Lidewij Edelkoort, has launched Trendtablet.com – a social-media platform that aims to explain how trends grow, evolve and flow.
Li constantly lives in the future. Studying the links between art, fashion, design and consumer culture, her work has pioneered trend forecasting as a profession, providing design and lifestyle analysis for the world’s leading brands.
Speaking at a seminar at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) in February, Li told delegates that we need to rekindle our relationship with Earth. The trends guru hopes that Trendtablet.com – a forum that’s open to public comments and contributions – will help us to better perceive and understand how we interact with daily life.
