HIGH POINT — Fashion Snoops, the global trend forecasting agency, has partnered with The International Textile Alliance, High Point Market Authority and the American Home Furnishings Hall of Fame Foundation as an official trend partner.
As part of the partnership, Fashion Snoops will align trend exhibits four times a year in High Point.
The agency will launch four themes at the Interwoven Textile Fair each season with a fabric gallery. One of these themes will then be translated into furniture and accessories and showcased at a Trend Exhibit at the new American Home Furnishings Hall of Fall building in time for High Point Market.
“This is an exciting opportunity to bring a unified trend voice to High Point, which has not been done before,” said Jaye Anna Mize, home and lifestyle vice president for Fashion Snoops. “We are excited to work with these teams to bring attendees valued consumer trends that translate into actionable products.”
“This partnership illustrates how interconnected our industry is, from the trends reflected in the textile designs shown at Interwoven Textile Fair by ITA to the home furnishings displayed at High Point Market,” added Carrie Dillion, managing director at ITA.
The trend exhibits will explore how designers turn these trends into new products and interiors, proving to be a must-see for all industry professionals.
The first trend to be introduced at the American Home Furnishings Hall of Fame building in April will be entitled, Symbiotic. This theme encompasses the shift of sustainability at the forefront of design and the desire to conserve our planet’s resources. In turn, we see a migration to colors that mimic earth at its core hues, bringing an organic uniqueness into the home.
The trend exhibits will be open:
- High Point Market, spring, April 22-26
- Interwoven Textile Fair by ITA, spring, May 21-24
- High Point Market, fall, Oct. 14-18
- Interwoven Textile Fair by ITA, fall, Nov. 12-15
