My upcoming lecture on 4 Lifestyle Trends Autumn/Winter 2017/18

Posted By Gudy Herder / December 22, 2016 / 36 Comments

I’d like to share with you a few invitations to come and hear me lecture on 4 Lifestyle Trends Autumn/Winter 2017/18 in Cologne at the international interiors show IMM. I already gave last year away a few entry tickets and was very happy to meet in person a few readers of the blog. This year I am going to lecture again on January, 16 at 3.30pm and hope to be able to meet and greet some of you again. I will speak about four micro trends and one leitmotiv that encounters the driving force for all of them.

The four trends will be:


In a world where clothing will grow in laboratories in a future, this trend talks about Synthetic Biology, an interdisciplinary branch of biology and engineering. The focus is on well-being with calm yet experimental looks.


In a world ruled by accumulation including fast fashion, this consumer has a deep desire for going back to the simple and most essential. It’s all about consuming less but better.


Subcultures break free and rebel! We will refer to Neo Punk as an on-going catalyst that continues to inspire, refuse categorisation and spark creativity around the world.


With growing migration towards larger cities, cultural roots are melting embodying a different narrative of what ‘roots’ mean today.

This is the last post for 2016, I am signing off today for some days over her eon the blog and will come back in 2017 with a lot of plans of new products, both online and offline to share with you. Hope you’re all staying warm, snuggled up and getting ready to enjoy some beautiful holidays! G, x

    Hi Gudy,
    Great news that you are at the IMM-Cologne this year. Interesting events that run parallel to the IMM are the PASSAGEN. (Interior design exhibition week). It’s a wonderful experience to explore 200 showrooms all around the city.
    Liebe Grüße Daggy

    Hi Gudy,
    I would like to meet you at IMM in Cologne, since it is just an hour drive away from my hometown.
    And I would like to meet you in person, for your emails always inspire me to look at colours and trends.
    Wishing you a very good start for 2017.

    Hola Gudy!
    Estaría encantada de asistir a tu conferencia y poder conocerte en persona ya que el curso de moodboard, que voy a comprar en breve, tendré que hacerlo online.
    Felices fiestas y espero que 2017 sea un gran año.
    Un abrazo.
