Fall/Winter 14/15 Style Trends

Vegas? Yes, please. This August we had the pleasure of attending the MAGIC Market Week Summer show in Vegas, for our first time. Typically any excuse to go to Vegas is a good one, but this time we were exceptionally excited to be in town for all the events. We spent our time walking the show floors and visiting with the plethora of exhibiting designers and vendors. We also attended a handful of the seminars at the show. But, the one that we enjoyed the most was the "Fall/Winter 2014/15 Trend Forecast". This seminar really used all of its allotted time and was packed full of great information encompassing four new menswear style trends;  Folkloric, Pro Sport, Boudoir, and Rocker.
