BARBARA FIELDS 2020 TREND PRESENTATION SHOW
California Apparel News Quoted :
The Majors Market served as something of a homecoming for the Barbara Fields Trend Report. Barbara Fields of the Barbara Fields Buying Office had been producing the event in the CMC for more than 30 years but moved out of the building earlier in 2019. In April, she produced the report for retailers at her home in West Los Angeles.
During Majors Market, she produced her trend forecast at a mezzanine showroom in the Cooper Design Space. Her forecast focused on some of the season’s overarching trends such including tie-dye and utility looks.
She also discussed other looks for Spring and Summer 2020, such as the popularity of pants and shorts with cinched—or “paperbag”—waists. Loose-fitting mom jeans would be popular, and denim would not be distressed moving into Spring and Summer 2020.
Dresses, jumpsuits and rompers would remain popular. Camisoles and clothes with ruffle details and smocking would gain favor this season, while clothing using lace fabrics as well as mesh and crochet would perform well. Bright colors would be in demand during the upcoming season, along with unique colors such as a rust-hued terra-cotta hue.
“It’s very Victorian,” Fields said. “No more grunge.”
