My initial speculations of the zeitgeist map was that there was more information that went into establishing a fashion segment than I expected. I didn’t think that politics and the economy would affect trends as much as it really does. The obvious sections of the zeitgeist map were the pop-culture icons and the trend setters. The not-so-obvious were the technology and the political. I look forward to distinguishing the not-so-obvious sections of the map and to identify the fashion era we are in.
