Resources / Worth Global Style Network: Using WGSN

What is WGSN?

WGSN provides trend forecasting, trend & market analysis, global fashion expertise, research & strategies on products, brand extensions, market opportunities & branding. Also included are City Guides which showcase selected cities around the world. Although it is primarily used by design students and staff, it has many articles on business and IT as well!

TP Library subscribes to WGSN: Fashion and WGSN: Insight.

  • Use Fashion to predict fashion trends across product categories from accessories to womenswear, menswear, jewellery and more.
  • Use Insight for original and thought-provoking content on consumer, marketing, retail and innovation trends. These content are relevant for not just Design but also Business staff and students.
