High Point Market Releases the Style Report for Winter/Spring 2018

High Point, NC, December 6, 2017— The High Point Market Authority (HPMA) has released this season’s much anticipated High Point Market Style Report for Winter/Spring 2018.

The report was developed by eight home fashion gurus – 4 sets of design duos - all part of the HPMA’s 2017 Style Spotters team, who scoured the Fall High Point Market (October 14-18) for the hottest must-have items and then translated their picks into today’s top trends for the report. Trends range from “City of Angles” to “Sculptural Influences” and from “Texture - Tough & Strong” to “Bold Color, Elegant Lines”. All trends in the Style Report for Winter/Spring 2018 may be found and downloaded at www.highpointmarket.org/products-and-trends/winter-spring-2018-style-report.

“Looking back on my trip to the Fall 2017 High Point Market, I feel our industry is having a moment – and a good one,” commented Style Spotter Emeritus Michelle Jennings Wiebe in her intro for the report. “It is this big overall moment that our 2017 Style Spotter duos set out to bring you the best of Fall Market. Each twosome has a distinctive design point of view, and I am certain you will enjoy their trend pairings for the coming season.”

Style Spotters who contributed to the Style Report for Winter/Spring 2018 include:
• Michelle Jennings Wiebe, ASID, Studio M
• CLOTH & KIND, Tami Ramsay and Krista Nye Nicholas
• Ishka Designs, Anishka Clarke and Niya Bascom
• Parker Kennedy Living, Lance Jackson and David Ecton
• Woodson & Rummerfield’s House of Design, Ron Woodson and Jaime Rummerfield

The Style Spotters program, launched during the October 2011 Market, features home fashion pace setters that showcase their favorite products and top trends from High Point Market exhibitors via Pinterest, the at-Market Style Spotters LIVE! event, the Style Report and various media interviews.

Led by Michelle Jennings Wiebe, a veteran of the 2013 program and HPMA’s Style Spotter “Emeritus”, each Style Spotters team serves for two Markets over a calendar year. When they source a treasure at Market, they present exhibitors with a sign that highlights the Style Spotter’s name with a QR code and URL for the High Point Market Pinterest board. The Fall 2017 Pinterest boards can be found at www.pinterest.com/highpointmarket.
