    YRP Asia Trends Report Series
    “Trendsetters are innovators in term of product adoption, and reference in term of lifestyle ”
    Muhammad Faisal Executive Director Youtlab Indo (Indonesia)
    “Trendsetters are customers or consumers who are ahead of the market curve and real influencers on the mainstream. Trendsetters are mayors of street creds”
    TarekKasser CEO of Young Berry Agency (Lebanon)

    TarekKasser CEO of
    Young Berry Agency Lebanon
    "Trendsetters in the Middle East are of two types:1. Rich customer who adopt and purchase a lot of new products to motivate surrounding community to follow him/her in at least one product without any domination to any particular category (car, mobile, clothes, etc...).2. A customer who has voice and opinion on things and share with the community surrounding him/her (or even nation-wide) through newspapers, blogs, or social networks in order to influence on one category they are dominantly good at.Both types of trendsetters are only successful when their personalities have leadership abilities.”

    TarekKasser CEO of
    Young Berry Agency Lebanon
    “Trendsetters in the Middle East are looking for various things, could be one or all the below:1. Social Status - trendsetters majorly want to be positioned better among peers and rest of the community. They love their lifestyle by being the first and unique.2. Empowered Voice: trendsetters are confident people of what they say and want their voice to be empowered by being able tostate their opinions to the brand managers. Empowerment can also be developing for them a direct channel with the brand managers all the time. 3. Access: trendsetters want access to the newest and latest trends in the U.S. and Europe (Fashion: New York, L.A. and Paris). Access can help even brand managers and agencies identify whether they are still relevant to the youth culture.”

    “Eco-cool” and the “fakoconsciousness”
    A strong emerging trait of young influencers in India at SEC1 cities… to show off that they are ecologically conscious!
    This is a characteristic which INgene coined as “fakoconsciousness” : a process of faking oneself as ecologically and socially active to remain “cool” among peers (when the on-ground observations states a different scenario).

    Emerging “DIY” initiatives among In‘glo’dians
     In contrast to the traditional “get it done” attitude of affluent class in India, the In’glo’dians are embracing more DIY to remain “alternative” and “personal”.

    BB babies vs. iphoneIn‘glo’dians
     
    There is a strong emerging difference among various categories of young and young adult segments in India. The Neuvo riche Indians in their 20’s and 30’s are opting for Blackberry where as the “alternative” cool In’glo’dians are moving towards iphone latest version. The aspiring “Indian” categories of youth are opting for BB look alike. The “Bharatiyas” are buying Chinese fakes, “no name/low- branded” local made mobiles.
     
    Narcissism grows
     
    The digital liberty is making this generation more and more narcissous….showing of self is rampant, virtually (in a country with strict social norms, offline)

    Digital VS Grass root  
    Indonesian trendsetters emerge from 2 different universe, the digital and the grass root world:
    Digital influencers are the young people who are actively shouting their opinion on a wide range issues, from economic, eco-green, politics, to celebrity gossips. They came from diverse background, although most of them are creative worker or academician. They have massive follower on social media and engage with them almost 24/7.
    The Grass root trendsetter are youths who specialized themselves in a particular hobby such as lomo camera, fingerboard, music, fashion, surfing, or fixed gear. They’re more active offline than online. They love to ‘nongkrong’ or ‘kopdar’, which means ‘hangout’ or ‘having a coffee break’. This type of trendsetters are the leader when it comes to creating a social currency.

    Social Event Expert 
    Indonesian youths are well trained when it comes to organizing an event. Because since junior high they usually have the experience gathering a ‘Pensi’, an abbreviation of ‘Pentasseni’, meaning ‘Art festival’.
    One of the peculiar characteristic of an Indonesian Trendsetters is that they’re a ‘veteran’ in event organizing. They are ‘la crème de la crème’ in the science of gathering crowd. One could see that the trendsetters are the man behind the gun in every popular youth event.

    Creating Public Spaces
    Because the youth center aren’t really working as it suppose to be in urban cities and almost all youth public facilities dated back to the 70’s. Trendsetters now also take part in creating new public spaces, or rejuvenating old ones as a decent place for youth.
    ‘Build this city’
    (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n351T8SP9rs)
    Is a one of the many example of how a community of youth trendsetters (unkl347) invest in creating a space for youth.
    The interesting part is, in initiating this militant movement the grass trendsetters don’t want to be related to a bigger cause, such as green or anti-corruption movement.

    Inclusive, Creative, Independent 
    Indonesia is well known as the biggest Muslim country in the world. But, what the western world usually don’t notice is that most of Indonesian people are ‘abangan’, meaning ‘moderate muslim’. Especially its young people. This decade mark the era where the Indonesian youths became more inclusive than its predecessor. For the trendsetters, they’re craving to be part of that story as well. Three major characteristic of an Indonesian trendsetters are:
    Inclusive regarding beliefs
    Want to be regarded more as a ‘creative artist’ than a ‘worker’
    Independent financially and ideologically

    Nationalism Redefined 
    Brands like Apple, McBeth, and Zara are still perceived as status symbol, but local brands start to regain their place among youth. This is where the trendsetters take part. Trendsetter are the young people who succeed to acculturate product such as fixed gear bike, tees, and sneakers not just in a creative way but with an indigenous touch as well.
