In this way the companies’ design teams turn Fashion Snoops into an extension of their work, helping them to make smart choices that will positively impact sales. It inspires them to venture into new product categories and widen the service portfolio. It gives them a holistic view of the Fashion System, obtaining different perspectives from international experts that contribute to the creative process. Companies such as Reebok, H&M, Victoria’s Secret, Revlon, Conair, Hasbro, Toyota, among others, have witnessed the benefits that the platform provides from its role as clients. 

From culture to product 

Fashion Snoops’ identification of trends begins with a prior 24-month investigative process, where Macrotrends are identified and analyzed – cultural and social movements that are impacting the world, and therefore the consumers-; and also MacroColor, a color forecast selected by the North American team and the well-known company Pantone, who define them according to findings in Macrotrends.

18 months later the forecasts begin to be confirmed and validated, drawing from the most influential fashion concepts, runways and tradeshows, which adjust the analysis and as a result produce the trends that the markets will present. The information links from beginning to end, facilitating the creative process and the understanding of how a trend arises and how it becomes tangible in a product.

Now Inexmoda joins the team, contributing to the whole process from its knowledge.

Ada Gómez, Fashion Snoops’ director of Development for Latin America, assured that one of the benefits that this alliance brings for the North American company is “the creation of a link between Latin America and New York. Fashion Snoops has been in Latin America for several years, but now with Inexmoda, who understands perfectly the Colombian and Ecuadorian client, the main countries that we wish to conquer, plus the knowledge and depth that they have in the market, will be the perfect combination for us to keep growing in the region.”
