“As a trend analyst I develop trends looking at human behaviour, art, architecture, street culture and consumer statistics,” said Fiona Jenvey, CEO, Mudpie. “This information enables my team to produce accurate trend directions ahead of the selling season. As the official trend service for Printsource New York we will provide an unbeatable range of trend information for Spring/Summer 2013 attendees.
