Reports and consumer insights
Always looking out for cutting-edge developments in the sector, I was in charge of regularly composing trade show & consumer reports.
I also participated in the Interfilière Color Consultation as a member of the panel of fashion experts gathered prior to the show, to envision the next major trends and to establish the season's color palette.
