  2. 2. My New York trend visit As founder of trend & marketing agency BLOOM I go every year on a trend trip to get fresh inspiration for my trend research. Last year I visited China and saw a booming economy and an eagerness for more and more consumption. The economic situation in the EU and US is the opposite. Because the recession has hit the US harder then the EU, I was curious to see what trends are developing in New York, a city with so many young, creative and ambitious people.
