| STORY |
Geraldine Wharry is from Paris and is bi-cultural / bilingual French American, growing up traveling between the USA and France. She fell in love with textile design and graduated from E.N.S.A.A Duperré in Paris in 1999. After receiving a full scholarship to Parsons in New York, she decided to move there, equipped with her portfolio, 400 dollars and her dual citizenship. There she quickly joined cult street wear brand Triple 5 Soul as fashion designer and started traveling around the world to design, develop and manage the womenswear collection.
In 2004 Geraldine moved to Los Angeles where she worked for iconic surfwear label Ripcurl and premium denim brand 7 For All Mankind. In between her roles, she took a six month break to work in Tanzania for a charity and expand her outlook.
After 11 years as a fashion designer, Geraldine decided to change her fashion lens and focused on innovation. She moved to London and joined WGSN as senior womenswear trend forecaster for Macro Trends and Seasonal Directions. She now runs her consultancy and has grown a global reputation for thought provoking presentations and vision.
