Carlin Creative Trend Bureau, a consulting and forecasting trend agency, is recognised as the first ever colour agency.
Founded in 1947 and later formed into the Comité Français de la Couleur, the group quickly made its reputation in the fashion and lingerie markets (intimates, sportswear, beachwear, and men’s, women’s, and children’s ready-to-wear), as well as the beauty, home furnishings and decor, industrial, and services sectors.
Renowned for its approach and trans-discipline culture mixing the design, marketing, and communication professions, the agency numbers 50 employees including 28 designers. Carlin Creative Trend Bureau encompasses several activities: trends and forecasting consulting; publishing trends books (12 per season + an annual book); developing collection guidelines; presenting trends forums; and organising and conducting workshops and seminars.
With a presence in around 20 countries as well as the world’s fashion capitals, the Bureau is constantly monitoring and processing information. Its 22 agents guarantee a superior vision of the market.
