You are sporting Jimmy Choo's new pricey pumps. You just spent a week having grape-seed facials at a California spa. You're looking at Ferraris. And you're having a custom portrait painted of your dog.
Congratulations. You are on trend.
Today's society is in a more-is-more mood, with many people loving the luxury of the most distinctive customized products, says Hallmark trend expert Marita Wesely-Clough.
On the other hand, if you are put off by the flash and cash, you are not alone. The counter trend to the best-is-best philosophy is a growing belief that enough-is-enough and it's time to scale down. The notions that friends, family and community contributions matter more is a philosophy fueled especially by baby boomers edging up to retirement.
These observations are also included in Wesely-Clough's latest trend forecast for 2005.
A rising influence from Asia in philosophy, aesthetics and, even more significant, in low-cost manufacturing and social issues.
A collective sense of global neighborhood as seen in the outpouring of aid to tsunami victims or worldwide pride in space accomplishments.
