Description:

Linking scenario thinking and fashion design this paper explores connections to design scenarios, highlighting the role of ephemerality. First, we develop the time issues of fashion design based scenarios from the perspective of the ephemerality of contemporariness. To explore ephemeral transformations in scenario thinking we propose a conceptual framework and introduce fashion- design transformation types. We extend the "tailoring voting" conversation issued from Oxford Futures Forum 2014 to discuss prospective transformations in decision-making processes. We finally explore the implications of such a perspective for scenario planning and fashion design.
