FU­TURE PER­FECT

Harper’s Bazaar (Australia) - - Inbox -

Your ar­ti­cle on Sarah Rut­son [“Born Re­tailer”, BAZAAR March] reveals how trend fore­cast­ers, and women in fash­ion in gen­eral, are noth­ing short of su­per­heroes. Not only do they have to make sense of such a non­sen­si­cal, ever-chang­ing and all-en­com­pass­ing in­dus­try, but they now have to be able to pre­dict the fu­ture?!

While I faith­fully ad­mire her ex­pe­ri­ence and nose for fash­ion, it makes me won­der if the world is so caught up in the next trend that we can’t truly en­joy the present. Buy­ing an out­fit know­ing it will be­come re­dun­dant within weeks al­most makes me feel over­whelmed.while Sarah Rut­son is a fash­ion god­dess walk­ing among mere fash­ion peas­ants, I won­der if this con­stant over­turn of trends is mak­ing the fash­ion world more and more dis­pos­able. But I mustn’t shoot the mes­sen­ger. Ms Rut­son is merely mak­ing jaw­drop­pingly ac­cu­rate pre­dic­tions. Is there any­thing she doesn’t know? If there is, it’s yet to be seen or heard of. Naomi, Vic­to­ria
