WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Geraldine has highlighted emerging and niche areas of London for us, taking us on unique storytelling journeys for inspiration, always with the discovery of a new spot, innovative idea or undiscovered item. She understands the parameters of our requests and thoughtfully delivers just the right mix of high and low, old and new, current and what’s next. And she’s always calm, intelligent and friendly, truly interested in our groups’ needs and always willing to partner and collaborate.
— Anton Auerbach, VP Strategic Patterning Services, Limited Brands

What is unique about Geraldine’s service is it’s very conceptual and creative. She gives an overall view of what’s going on in the world or fashion. If you’re a true creative or a true designer, artist or someone who is curious in life you’ll be able to take that and make it work for you.
— Nalini Arora - Senior Footwear designer and Blogger, LA ShoeGirl, Los Angeles
 
Geraldine has been a huge asset to Mustard and has assisted with highlighting, reconfirming and guiding us through up and coming trends, plus she is an absolute pleasure to work with. I can’t recommend her enough!
— Reuben Utidjian, Founder, MUSTARD

Having worked very closely with Geraldine and collaborated with her on many trend reports as part of the womenswear future trends team at WGSN, I can highly recommend her both as a designer and trends forecaster. She has a fantastic eye, a wide ranging and in depth knowledge of art and design history and visual cultures and has an innate ability to spot trends. When working in a team she is collaborative, generous, receptive and engaging but is equally able to provide strong direction and leadership.
— Melanie Plank, Womenswear Trend Analyst and Consultant, WGSN.
