Mpdclick is another trend resource I use in my current line of work. It keeps you informed of rapidly changing fashion and consumer trends. This online subscription service keeps busy professionals and students updated. This service compliments the Trendbooks which are published 2 years ahead of season.
For a free trial or to subscribe, you can view their service, Mpdclick online. Students....check out their Student Resource Area section.
