To be a Coolhunter? I WANT!
For sure that you have heard the word ‘Coolhunting’ thousands of times but, do you really know what does it mean?
A Coolhunter is someone capable of detecting waves of change in an emergent level, selecting and filtering; someone able to understand, from an objective point of view, the meaning of the movements and new trends.
Nowadays the coolhunting concept has evolved and gone beyond ephemeral trend detection, encompassing also the understanding of the motivations and meanings that underlie what we see. Thus, coolhunting becomes a powerful tool at strategic level, not just tactical, from the development of new communication modes and territories to develop new products and designs.
For this reason, IED Barcelona offers two types of courses: the Postgraduate in Trends Research (English) and the Summer Course in Fashion Trends Investigation from Coolhunting to Forecasting (English).
