Using Trend Forecasting Services to Develop Students’ Fashion Information
Competencies for Academic and Professional Success
By Cecilia Oliva, Fashion Snoops
Program content developed in collaboration with Sandra Ley, Pima Community

Fashion Snoops, an online global forecasting and trend analysis service, will review the ARLIS/NA’s Information Competencies for Fashion Students and discuss the process of developing student information competencies via online trend forecasting services.

In this workshop, we will explore how students competent with trend forecasting services and their use have a much greater chance of professional success.  We will review the important components of trend forecasting services, and creative ways to integrate trend forecasting information into class assignments.

Lastly, we will discuss how faculty-librarian collaborations can enhance students’ development of their fashion information competencies and support student learning outcomes in this area.

Hope to see you there!
