Future Fashion & Mobility Trend Report

The Future Fashion & Mobility Trend Report is a series on how mobility and technology have changed and propelled fashion in the past and is also a brief on how we believe mobility and technology will shape the future of fashion. 

In the first half of our series, we focused on some of the more momentous historical examples of FashionTech. Starting with how materials helped put humans on the moon to how travel in the 1800s led to new materials and changes in fashion. We’ve covered a classic example of innovation through iteration: the zipper; the zipper was developed over time by multiple people and is still the most common fastener that we use today. Our last historical case was based on how bicycles brought more than just fashion changes, but also social advances for women.

After covering several topics in fashion history, examining the future of fashion felt like the natural next step.

To forecast the future, we asked Cecile Poignant to develop a bespoke study. She has been forecasting trends for over 30 years and is a collector of thoughts, ideas, pictures, signals, and movements. With her collection, she then starts connecting glimpses of the future. The modern world doesn’t stop moving, and the fashion of the future will mold itself according to the needs of this world. For ThePowerHouse, she encapsulated the major long-term trends on Fashion & Mobility within four angles: freedom, power, collective and exclusive. 

From Cecile's forecasts, we intermingle our expertise on FashionTech and provide a look at the global trends we see forming today that will affect the human experience of fashion in the near future, all under the umbrella of mobility — physical, mental, digital. Take a look below for Parts 1-8 of our Future Fashion & Mobility Trend Report.
