In her presentation, Vilislava identifies a new context that will inspire the creation, adoption and demand of an emerging global narrative.

Vilislava researches cultural and social movements, analysing their relevance and application to the product and fashion industries. Throughout her career, Vilislava has travelled the globe researching emerging and established trends, and consulted on creative direction and colour and trend application for some of the biggest brands and retailers in the world, including Apple, Converse, GAP, Nike, Samsung, Shiseido, Target and Walmart. For the past three years, she has shared her unique insights as a teacher in trend and colour forecasting at Parsons The New School for Design in New York City and Paris, and currently leads WGSN Group’s Asia Pacific content creation, managing a team of regional editors and researchers across the region. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
