For the latest in consumer and industry news, top trends and market perspectives, stay tuned to Mintel News featuring commentary from Mintel's team of global category analysts.

Whether commuting on the train, running in the park or sitting at your desk, Mintel’s podcast series ‘Little Conversation’ brings you fresh ideas, bold innovation and data-driven intelligence.

Our analysts have been following the New York, Milan, London and Paris fashion weeks through social media and by attending in person. From elevated neutrals and make-up colour-blocking to 3D nail art and dirty hair, they run through the key trends spotted on the runways. But what does it all mean for brands, buyers and retailers? They discuss how fashion can cater to modern-day, working women; why influencers still play a crucial role in trickling trends down to consumers; and how brands are trying new approaches to get consumers involved.
