IU Kelley School’s fashion index suggests a warmer spring season for apparel retailers


Despite the cold weather and storms — which some economists suggest have been behind the recent economic slowdown — retailers may enjoy a hot spring season, according to the FIndex survey. The FIndex is based on survey data obtained from a representative sample of CollegeFashionista’s 600 “style gurus,” who report on fashion trends at college campuses around the world. Style gurus are a curated group of college-age students who possess a keen eye for new style trends in all realms of the fashion industry.
