The zeitgeist of our times truly influence what is to come next in fashion, product, and media.
Here's two trending mindsets of our time:
"Made in America"
This movement has really taken off in the last few years. Americans are tired of seeing countless jobs being moved overseas by corporations. Not to long ago, Nabisco announced that they would be moving their plants to Mexico. Facebook was up in roars about the 600 jobs being lost to another bottom-line corporate decision. Consumers are demanding more product to be seen at stores made by fellow Americans. Major chain stores like Wal-Mart are joining in and supplying this need to the people. Social media outlets have also help bring this attitude into more mainstream light.
Save the animals! Many across the world are speaking up for our furry and sea creature friends. This thought has been around for sometime, but with movies like Blackfish... this idealistic movement has gain more attention. Why are we still hunting animals for fun? Why are we using real fur on coats? Why are we testing products on animals? We as humans... we wouldn't like to be used in such manners. I don't want to be skinned for a coat! With Pope Francis stating back to 2014, "Heaven is for all Gods creatures. One day we will again see our animals in the eternity of Christ," the internet exploded on the issue of animal rights. Take the current issue of Cecil the lion... Many airlines changed their policies on transporting hunting trophies. The awareness that is taking place on this issue in my opinion will bring more animal-friendly products and services.
Our society is handling subjects that are going to influence tomorrow. What movements do you see making progress into the headlines?
