[PV NY Talks] The Ripple Effect

PV NY Talk Ripple Effect

Sharon Graubard of SG FILES will present 6 clear and compelling “TrendTales”. Each TrendTale tells a relevant & inspiring fashion story — with a focus on must-have items and the fabrics, textures, colors, and prints/patterns that will define each aesthetic.

The FALL/WINTER 25-26 forecast, THE RIPPLE EFFECT, positions trends within the cultural moment. Shifting consumer values further shape the narrative, as current concerns like climate change, radical inclusivity, zero waste and brand ethos inform the way we shop, dress and care for our clothing. SG FILES shows how trends emerge from these intertwining threads of art, interiors, fashion history, and social movements — bringing clarity, meaning and authenticity to the seasonal design process.
