London, United Kingdom, October 07, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Each week the poll presents fashion professionals with the opportunity to voice their opinion on current styles and trends by voting on topical questions.
“Do you expect shoulder pads to be a mainstream trend in the next six months?” was the question answered by 536 fashion industry leaders last week. The results were a majority vote for “Yes” which gained 54.1% of the votes, compared to 41.23% of voters who opted for the answer “No”. Only 3.75% of voters answered “Don’t Know.”
Other poll questions include “Is the worst of the recession over for the fashion industry?”, “What’s the biggest driver of footfall to your store at the moment?” and “Which shorts style will be commercially strongest next summer?”
The poll is yet another creative development in WGSN’s quest to maintain and build on their leading position in the global market place and is proving to be a popular addition to the product.
