Lifestyle, trends, culture, preference, style. These are things that changes and shift over time. Certain things that are popular now may not be popular in the future; certain things that are out of style now may be in favor again someday. As a visual merchandiser, you need to keep up on these cycles of fashion and make sure that your store’s displays always reflect what’s current and popular.
Cycles of fashion are a part of your life whether you notice them or not. Understanding these cycles can help in your day-to-day life.
The fashion industry is constantly changing. New styles are released, and old ones fade away. Sometimes, the older trends come back later on.
There are a few different factors that decide what fashions come into style and which stay in style. The two most influential factors are: Lifstyle and culture.
Lifestyle is how people live their lives, from their interests to the activities they like to participate in. Culture is made up of the beliefs, values, and traditions of a group of people. Both lifestyle and culture influence trends in fashion, but they don’t decide them by themselves. People have their own personalities and tastes which influence what they think is attractive or fashionable. It’s all these factors together that determine whether a trend will be popular or not.
