- Big Ideas 2016
- When it comes to looking to the future the most successful stars, TV personalities, and journalists all have some big ideas.
- Hereâs what some of the worldâs most creative professionals think is coming in 2016.
- âThere is a big shift away from a glossy corporate vibe towards eccentricity. Even big corporations like Gucci and Chanel are presenting themselves in a less slick corporate manner. Whether itâs a fashion show, a party or an ad campaign, itâs all about adding a dollop of idiosyncrasy and a little bohemian edge.â Simon Doonan Creative Ambassador-at-Large, Barneys NY
- âIn 2016, tasting-menu-only restaurants will continue to trend but will become less significant, and more casual restaurants with multi-option menu experiences will eventually take over.â Mario Batali Chef, Restaurateur, Entrepreneur
- âToday everything is rapidly disposable, which is unfortunate because thereâs something beautiful about honest authenticity. By moving everything so fast, weâre pushing to the next before weâve had a chance to digest the first thing. Too many choices is confusing and overwhelming. Instead, I think itâs better to stay consistent and authentic â take what you do best, commit to it, and make it the best it can be. Genuine, honest loyalty has been lost in a world of too fast, over assorted, too big and over the top.â Marissa Webb Creative Adviser, Banana Republic
- âWhen we feel great about what weâre wearing, we step out into the world with confidence. That confidence creates positive connections in our lives both personally and professionally. I believe there is a trend brewing to reshape fashion to use clothing as a tool to attain this level of empowerment.â Leesa Evans Costume Designer, Celebrity Stylist, & Co-Founder of Stylefund
- âIâm excited to see how technology continues to evolve and impact our everyday lives. The advancement of video and mobile technology has been fascinating, especially in the 360/ Virtual Reality vertical.â Justine Ezarik aka iJustine American YouTube personality and author
- âThe trend toward greater aspiration is worldwide, yet at the same time in many societies, including the U.S., the number of people who describe themselves as âthrivingâ â Gallupâs highest category of wellbeing â is either shockingly low or harder than ever to achieve. Therefore, wellbeing is going to become a hotter and hotter issue, especially in the workplace, and finding the means to quantify it is going to be a critical part of the picture.â Deepak Chopra Founder of the Chopra Foundation READ MORE https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/big-idea-2016-when-comes-wellbeing-how-do-you-measure-deepak
- â2016 will be the year in which the forces of entrepreneurialism and feminism converge. Together, they will drive a long-wave, golden age of female entrepreneurship, which will be a positive for all of us: good for the women who make the leap, good for the economy and good for consumers.â Sallie Krawcheck CEO and Co-Founder of Ellevest READ MORE https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/big-idea-2016-were-entering-golden-age-female-itll-sallie-krawcheck
- âIn the next year, chefs will be challenged to think creatively about how to use all parts of the plant or animal and make serious considerations for sourcing responsibly. It is critical that as we learn, we teach others what we have learned... 2016 will challenge us as chefs, to utilize our platform in order to educate each other and reinforce the important messages of sustainable practices in the restaurant and beyond.â Marcus Samuelsson Chef and Author at Marcus Samuelsson Group READ MORE https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/big-idea-2016-year-when-chefs-become-front-of-house-marcus-samuelsson
- âSo hereâs the big idea I think will shape 2016: sleep. Thatâs right, sleep! How much and how well we sleep in the coming year â and the years to follow â will determine, in no small measure, our ability to address and solve the problems weâre facing as individuals and as a society. While our need for sleep has been a constant throughout human history, our relationship to sleep has changed throughout the centuries. And right now weâre in the middle of a sleep deprivation crisis, with devastating effects on our health, our job performance, our relationships, and our happiness.â Arianna Huffington President and Editor-in-Chief of The Huffington Post Media Group READ MORE https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/big-idea-2016-sleep-revolution-allow-us-better-solve-huffington
- âWe live in an anything-goes world where itâs OK to mix high with low, mid-century with minimalist modern, colors, patterns, and everything in between. The best trend Iâm seeing â and one that I hope continues through 2016 â is people forgetting the ârulesâ and loving what they love unapologetically. I wouldnât have it any other way.â Jonathan Adler Potter, Designer and Author
- âI feel confident that in 2016 we will start to see a major shift in Hollywood with regards to women. With the topics of equal pay and opportunities for women being so heavily discussed right now, my hope is that we will start to see the multitude of creative and intelligent women out there taking on significant roles both behind the camera and in the boardroomsâ Issa Rae Actress and Writer
- âTechnology will continue to be the defining factor in what we do next year. It will be integrated into fashion, fabrics, and all aspects of our lives with new apps to communicate and streamline our lives and make things (theoretically) easier and more productive. I believe there will be more transactions executed at etail than retail. I believe the concept of fashion shows will begin to transform and be reinvented to take advantage of this technology and address the changing whims and fancies of the fashion industry.â Fern Mallis President at Fern Mallis LLC and creator of New York City Fashion Week Photo: Timothy Greenfield-Sanders
