This Summer 2022 edition also brings an exciting and artistic direction from the New York-based agency, Doneger | TOBE, spearheading the look and design for the Trend Showcase, along with offering insights during a one-day only seminar on what’s to come for the Fall/Winter 2023-24 season. The Trend Showcase will fill the hall with innovative materials and inspirational color palettes taking visitors on a journey BEYOND: “We have roamed the galaxies in search of meaning, to realize it can only be found within. As life passes us by, a collective consciousness dawns upon us – That we must dive beneath the surface and look beyond the material” notes Kai Chow, Creative Director, Doneger | TOBE. “Technological advancement, a craving for community and a sense of responsibility for the planet intertwine as we seek to remodel fashion."
Chow will present four unique themes encompassing his vision of BEYOND: Color Therapy, Future Craft, Hyper Nature, and Spirit Quest.
