I would like to expand upon a post I wrote in 2013, you can find it here:
In that post I discussed how the trends of tomorrow come from within. “Wait, whaaa” , you ask? Trends are created by YOU! That’s right, the trends you see in magazines were created you! The styles you see on the runway, come from street trends. Street trends come from…..YOU! “OMG, I GET it, I am famous!” Ok maybe you’re are not famous, and maybe you will never get credited, but you can still have a warm fuzzy knowing that you are contributing to the style of tomorrow.
Did you know YOU can create your very own trend? <cricket cricket> I KNOW it seems unreal! You are in AWE and can’t speak; it’s ok I am great at doing all the talking :)
Designers are highly influenced by trends, because these trends can turn into: cha-ching, sales and revenue. Typical trends are started by those in the close eye of the camera; celebrities start many trends and their fans go wild. But what if you could create your own trend? Ok , I know I keep promising to tell you how!
So, below are MY beginner tips to starting your own trend! I want comments from all my fans on trends they have started, and future comments on trends that are really working!
#1 Be confident! If you do not have confidence that you can do this, then go read one of my other posts(pssst! I know you can do it!)
#2 Wear your trend/use your trend in public! People need to be able to SEE what is is that you are wanting to flaunt, so flaunt it girl! And man…..
#3 Promote your trend on social media. You NEED to have good content though; you can’t just post a pic of you in a “chicken costume” and expect it to trend overnight! But if you WORK it, and tell readers WHY that costume is GOLDEN, you can sell it!
#3 Use hash-tags on Instagram, twitter and Facebook
#4 Look up current trends you can play off of! Maybe this year “hippie jeans” are trending, and those dream catchers you make now have a great avenue to slip into that hippie theme!
Remember with big rewards, must also come hard work. Work and define your trend and make it visible for everyone to see!
