Brainstorming topic ideas for a class assignment? Start at WSGN (Worth Style Global Network). Founded in London in 1998 (hence the spelling of "colour") WSGN is an image database for fashion trends. Articles and images are constantly updated. Fashion photos are produced from around the world. This forecasting tool will help you stay ahead of fashion and color trends. WSGN is helpful for fashion marketing, business, graphic design, visual art courses and costume studies for theater.
Start your search by clicking on All Markets and a list of subjects will pop up. If you already know that you want to limit your search by gender or age, you can click on the appropriate word. If you click Fashion Feed, you will get up-to-date postings of new fashions.
Within All Markets, you can search by
Time Period (Future Trends)
Type of Clothing (Category)
Details of Interest to Graphic Designers (Create)
Details of Interest to Marketers (Buying)
If you aren't sure where you want to go, try browsing the Research column.
Once you have picked a topic, you can further refine it by using the toolbar that appears along the top of each web page and the search box that appears on the upper left.
WSGN has no one category called Catwalks, but the "Catwalks" fit together. The overview is in Catwalks Gallery. From there, you can click over to still and video images of fashion shows, organized by year, city, and designer, in Catwalks Live. Business information is in Catwalks Analytics.
Graphic artists in search of inspiration may want to browse Textiles.
Try our Image database ARTstor for more research in art and architecture.
