WHERE NEXT? In this episode, Simone and Clare are in Paris to talk with the great Dutch trend forecaster Lidewidj Edelkoort and hear her insights on where fashion - and culture - is headed.  "We will change possibly everything we do now. It's going to be a radical moment of change," says Li, who once described her work as "archeology of the future".   Li's company Trend Union puts out riveting forecasts and reports predicting what’s next. You’ve no doubt heard of her famous Anti-Fashion Manifesto published in 2014. And you probably read recently about her ideas on how coronavirus has led us into a quarantine of consumption from which we might, if we’re smart, choose to press reset button. This interview recorded before that, but it is, unsurprisingly prescient. From slowing down and doing more with less to new economic models. From reconnecting with storytelling to the tactility of textiles and the importance of local communities - all these things are on tomorrow's agenda.
