High Point Market - Releases the Style Report for Summer/Fall 2016

High Point, NC, May 31, 2016— The High Point Market Authority (HPMA) has released this season’s much anticipated High Point Market Style Report for Summer/Fall 2016.

This 21 page report was developed by eight home fashion gurus, all part of the HPMA’s 2016 Style Spotters team, who scoured the Spring High Point Market (April 16-20) for the hottest must-have items and then translated their picks into today’s top trends for the report. The Style Report for Summer/Fall 2016 may be found and downloaded at http://www.highpointmarket.org/products-and-trends/spring-2016-style-report.

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.
