I have never been one to follow trends, but I have a good sense of what is to come into fashion. Stumbling on this, I agree with its fashion forecast for 2007. ‘Looking forward in fashion is looking back in time. History is our new toy for inspiration. The memory fever, the nostalgia trend of today. We re-discover our own history again. We re-appreciate old values, traditions, rituals and cherish them as treasures now. We dive into the past looking for our roots, something to hold on; we need a time out to reposition ourselves.’ With this trend, following the boom in handmade crafts at the end of 2006 will be the inspiration today.
