  3. 3. For Fashion Forecasting it means a new, younger generation of artists are being nurtured. “We’ve supported The Frame at Frieze, it’s been curated, it’s experimental with lots of young artists with an unlimited point of view. - Joe Fresh The new gallery artist has very little boundaries which cultivates a leading edge for any brand’s conquest to be “fresh” to it’s ever evolving consumer. For brands, such as American Apparel, being a US vertical manufacturer means the business supports Americans, like their very own staff photographer’s personal exhibit,“Gynolandscape”. Supporting the artist translates into understanding and embracing their customer’s lifestyle and getting to know their needs and wants in the most natural manner. No two buyers, artists or gallery owners were dressed alike in the 250k space show.
