Bloomsbury Digital Resources is delighted to announce an exclusive partnership with global trend forecasting agency FS (Fashion Snoops). Effective September 1, 2018, the two companies will bring FS’s commercial trend platform to the educational market to raise the bar in innovative design and creation of trend–based concepts.
The FS trend platform is a one-stop-shop for creatives to build new design concepts that harness future trends. It allows faculty members and students to get the cultural inspiration they need to innovate, as well as consult market-specific seasonal trend guidance and access ongoing industry coverage to confirm trend direction. Using built in curation and creation tools, the platform allows users to quickly build color palettes and concept boards starting with hundreds of ready-made templates.
The platform supports students of design, marketing, trend forecasting, and merchandizing, allowing them to apply problem-solving skills and critical thinking to the design process, to work collaboratively, and present professionally. It also provides them with experience using a commercial tool available in the workplace when they finish their studies.
The FS trend platform will be part of Bloomsbury’s offerings in fashion studies, which includes Bloomsbury Fashion Central, an award-winning platform delivering content that is tailored to the needs of fashion students and educators everywhere. The two companies are exploring ways to connect Bloomsbury’s digital resources to the FS platform and thus bring a comprehensive experience for students to both learn and create.
Kathryn Earle, Managing Director of Bloomsbury Digital Resources, says “The partnership with FS is the perfect complement to our suite of educational products for students and teachers of fashion and design. This easy-to-use end-to-end solution will stimulate creativity and streamline the design process for students of fashion as well as the broader range of design disciplines.”
Itay Arad, Co-Founder / CEO, Fashion Snoops, said “We are thrilled to be partnering with Bloomsbury and make our platform available to thousands of educational institutes worldwide. Combining their timeless digital assets with our real time insight and commercial creation tools will provide the educational market with a complete solution from inspiration to final design, getting them ready for life after school.”
