I'm sure you guys wanna be ahead of fashion! So here is the best website to trend forecast, looking at colors and the fashion. Check out the fashion awards too and how they forecast using color palettes. Looking at designer shows would help too.
Some trend forecasting tips, Ive learned in my textiles class two terms ago, were to observe the colors of this season, get some fabric samples, and many silhouettes of garments. Create a color palette you think will be popular later on by observing the color wheel. You can also visit wholesaler stores. Trend forecasting is a fun thing to do especially if you are very into fashion or as addicted as I am that I can't get enough.
