Li Edelkoort is arguably the world’s most famous trend forecaster and colourist, working in industries from design and fashion to food, architecture, communication and retail. Founded in 1986, her company Trend Union produces trend tools for strategists, designers and marketers at international brands. She is also a publisher, humanitarian, educator and exhibition curator. In 2011, she launched an interactive online trend forum called TrendTablet.com. She has been named by TIME Magazine as one of the Most Influential People in Fashion and by Icon as one of the Most Influential People in Design. Since 2015, Edelkoort is Dean of Hybrid Studies at Parsons in New York, where she has founded Textile Month each September and a Textiles Masters in 2018. Her much-talked about ANTI-FASHION Manifesto was the first to raise awareness about the shifts and upheavals currently experienced in the global fashion industry. Edelkoort is the recipient of numerous accolades including a 2014 Honorary Royal Designer for Industry (RDI) and a 2017 induction into Interior Design’s Hall of Fame.
