Future Forecast 2023
There is an ease of interconnectivity in the way that Gen Z shop and consume across a growing number of digital resale platforms, while collective nostalgia is also inspiring brands to build archives. 

The adage – ‘waste is the new luxury’ – heralds the potential of lab- based textile alternatives in the luxury sector. Aesthetically, expect to see a swerve away from anti-dopamine dressing towards a more dystopian direction as we vent our collective, post-pandemic trauma. The industry will continue to forge an inclusive and resilient
fashion system, one that supports more fulfilling relationships between ourselves and the beautiful materials we wear.

In our new Future Forecast 2023 report and webinar collection, we explore five trends from the Fashion sector:

1. Dressing for Dark Times

2. Resale Redux

3. Bio-Fashion

4. Meta-creation

5. Decolonising Fashion

Alongside a Viewpoint from Joey Pringle, co-founder of alternative leather manufacturer Veshin Factory, explains how plant-based leathers can disrupt the luxury sector, and why vegan leathers are ‘complete nonsense'.
