3 Easy Ways to Follow Fashion Trends, As They Happen! Be the First! Following fashion trends is much easier with the advent of today’s technology. For many of us, attending the latest catwalk events or designer parities isn’t as easy, we have real work to do! Thankfully there are easier ways to keep up to date, and all it takes is a little research. 1. A great place to start out is with Google searching, look up the gossip websites and news blogs who have reported from the latest events. You’ll find loads of info here – and plenty of pictures and ideas to work with. Make sure you bookmark these websites (CTRL + B) on your keyboard, so you can come back easily. Also, sign up the email newsletter and RSS feed if they have one, so you’ll be the first to hear about new content. It sounds geeky, but a RSS feed just updates your email inbox whenever there is a new post on a blog – so you get to know first. 2. Also, check out online video sites for recorded live coverage of any popular events, you’ll find thousands of video available, many in high quality, and make sure you filter by ‘date’. 3. Make sure you check out the twitter search tool swell, and you can spot trends that people are talking about right now – not a week later. Once you have a list of your ideas, remember that many of these items will be very expensive, and for the average ‘normal’ person – $5000 on a skirt isn’t part of the weekly shopping spree! So, what next?
