I am in a business fashion class and I am doing a project, if you could answer these questions I would appreciate it very much. 1) If I could ask 300,000-1,000,000 people some questions, which questions would a fashion forecaster as an individual or a whole find monetarily valuable? In other words, what information would forecasters, or some other part of the fashion industry pay money for. 2) Does anyone have access to consumer spending trends in the last 3 or so years? Keep in mind I have to cite the information. This is what I have so far. In 2007 consumer spending on apparel, accessories and footwear was at $18.3 billion; 8% or $1.45 billion spent over the Internet. Another study shows that apparel spending by parents on their teen was at $915 per year.
