Sample Portraiture Pro Trends

Each Portraiture PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online portraiture articles, videos and images. Examples:

Opulent Zen Elements of luxury are applied to the yoga sphere Implications - Despite the commonly held belief that yoga is separated from materialism, upscale brands are infusing the zen-oriented sphere with high fashion elements. Incongruous pairings such as this hold mass market potential since Millennial shoppers are often drawn to the atypical in all consumer sectors.

Playful Dairy Cheese packaging borrows from fun, young motifs for experience-oriented consumers Implications - Brands playing in the cheese sphere are showcasing engaging, young motifs via youthful packaging. This design theme is optimal for companies targeting Millennials, who place high value on unique brands and branding. This has implications for Generation Z as well, as digital natives also favor the unconventional in place of dominant, established norms.

Autumnal Artisan Fall fashion leans towards traditionalism for authentically minded shoppers Implications - Autumnal fashions are demonstrating a consistent pull towards artisan designs and looks ideal for young shoppers who are expressing a yearning for traditionalism.

Surgical Mimicry Fashion brands focus on plastic surgery via over-the-top portrayals Implications - Fashion brands are mimicking the look and after effects of plastic surgery with over the top portrayals of cosmetic procedures. This shift towards boldly exploring the topic represents a sense of self-awareness in the fashion industry. By acknowledging the role of the industry plays when it comes to establishing unrealistic beauty standards, these brands are able to better relate to consumers.

Militant Approachability Personification of soldiers softens the image of the armed forces Implications - The digital generation has access to people from across the world and endless amounts of information, making them more empathetic and echoing the hippies of the boomer generation. As a result, all things military-related have received a negative reputation. More approachable, personified content can be observed to alleviate this, pointing to a battle between behavioral tribes.

Gender Transparency The transgender community establishes a mainstream presence Implications - In recent years, the transgender community has risen to the forefront of LGBTQ efforts with the help of celebrity advocacy and a growing presence in the mainstream media. This is not only an indication of the evolving attitudes towards gender representation, but also an effort on behalf of the transgender community to educate the public by sharing their own personal experiences.

Cosmic Aesthetic Artists look to outer space for inspiration in their work Implications - Rather than pandering to the sci-fi fandom, artists using space-inspired visuals in their work are attempting to get back to the root of what science fiction is all about: a creative re-imagining of the future. By referencing the cosmos in their work, artists are able to tap into people's collective anxieties about the future, and create a surreal counter-narrative that provides both comfort and amazement.

Culture Coalescence Pop culture is used as a platform to examine cross-cultural relationships Implications - China's growing global influence has prompted an examination of the country's relationship with North America, a relationship which is being playfully explored within the context of pop culture. Artists and designers hailing from China and beyond are incorporating a Chinese aesthetic into traditionally American products, illustrating the tradition of borrowing and re-interpreting cultural elements, as well as recognizing China's influence in a more authentic way.
