i am someone who cannot plan ahead of time when i'll want my next haircut. if i schedule a cut 5 weeks from now, i may wake up that morning and like my hair and not want it cut. if i don't schedule anything, i might want a whole new shape this weekend. this, understandably, aggravates my hairdresser.
yet some how, designers plan their collections at least a year in advance, then they show me in the winter what i'll want to wear the next summer. and when i'm buying my sweater for this year, they're designing my sweater for next year. how they know what i'll want before i do is a mystery. and how i am able to pick and like something this week that i will also like next week, and next month, and next year, is also a mystery. but it happens. a lot. so are designers just wasting their time?
if a designer showed an identical collection 2 years in a row, what would you think?
