Welcome! Thank you for taking part.

This is a live brief. Emily has kindly shared her working document that she is using as reminders and key reference in creating her new trend report for Spring Summer 2019. Use this document to absorb the mood and get a feel for the trend direction. 

  1. For each trend there is a girls and boys page. This page is populated with images for 3 age groups as listed on the page
  2. Please follow the file guidelines and submission instructions carefully
  3. Please only send your best finished work. Go for Quality over quantity
  4. Please do not share any of these pages online, on your blogs, social media or any other public forum as they are intended for personal use only as an aid in this design process
  5. Feel free to share your own designs and work in process shots. Use hashtags #risedesignandshine and #RDSTrends and or tag @risedesignandshine so we can follow along and re-share your work.


Join the private Rise Design and Shine Facebook group. Here you can share any images you would like feedback on or feel stuck with: https://www.facebook.com/groups/risedesignandshine/requests/
