Overarching Trends from Scandinavia: An IFDAEF Grant Research Webinar June 17

Garette Johnson will take us through overarching cultural and attitudinal themes driving design in Scandinavia that are rapidly influencing the future of design the world over. With expertise across fashion, interiors, product development, consumer insight and cultural arts, Garette will share her unique perspective informed by futures studies and trend research abroad.

In 2018, the IFDAEF awarded Garette Johnson the Valerie Moran Memorial Grant for professional development studies abroad. Garette traveled to Copenhagen, Denmark to learn a futures forecasting methodology called Scenario Planning at the Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies as well as research how Danish culture informs urban planning and interior design. Over the last 2.5 years, Garette has continued to explore Scandinavian culture, art and design working with Norwegian brands at ICFF, travel to Oslo for Fashion Week and volunteering at the American Scandinavian Society.
