With a new year comes a fresh start, and as we turn our attention ahead to Spring/Summer 2020, putting another year of unrest and uncertainty behind us, we focus on developing a refreshed and relaxed, laid-back aesthetic with an overall calming and nurturing effect. As we expand on our big ideas for the season, introduced in our issue 25 forecast, we continue to explore the idea of a world in flux. Change is constant and it is transforming our everyday lives, particularly in terms of our fashion choices. While certainly not a new topic, sustainability continues to dominate textile talk. With many brands having vowed to fully overhaul their fabric selections and production methods by January 2020, it seems this season will be a key milestone for the fashion and textile industry.
