What drew you to the world of trends and foresight?
My interest in trends and foresight developed because of my personal interests combined with my curiosity as a cultural writer. I am fascinated by why consumers adopt certain trends, bypassing more obvious ones and how becoming a ‘cool-hunter’ can become a lifelong trait.
