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. It isn’t meant to be pretty, it is about absorbing the mood and trend direction. Use the keywords as a starting point, go from there and have some fun! 

  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. After looking at the briefs please select which trends you plan to design for on this sheet (if you plan on submitting designs): https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1B0TgTAU_9q517oTxiW1ldN0lZRdvJ5_mFAAK6TyZZeM/edit?usp=sharing 
  3. Please only send your best finished work. Go for Quality over quantity.
  4. Please follow the file guidelines and submission instructions carefully
  5. 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. 


Feel free to share your designs and work in process shots. I have created a Rise Design and Shine Facebook group which you are welcome to join and share any images you would like feedback on or feel stuck with: https://www.facebook.com/groups/risedesignandshine/requests/
