Friday's Fabulous Woman: Lidewij Edelkoort

Friday's Fabulous is back!  My apologies for slacking off the past couple of weeks.   This week the spotlight is on one of the top trend forecasters in the world, Lidewij Edelkoort.   Edelkoort has an impressive resume including multiple awards.   One of them being named one of the world’s 25 most influential people in fashion by TIME magazine n 2003.  She and her team announce colors, concepts and materials which will be in fashion two years in advance.

I love this description of her job on her site:  "Travelling, shopping and searching the world over, Li Edelkoort is constantly gathering information and emotions, studying the fabric of society, picking up materials, words, figures and flowers like a global beachcomber." The online library of images featured in Bloom, the magazine she publishes is beyond delicious and fabulous.  I hope you enjoy it as weekend reading.
