TJF Launches U.S. Forecasting Service

Trends Jewelry Forecasting, an independent company involved in global research
and strategic consulting in the jewelry and crossover luxury industries, will
launch its forecasting and international market development services in the
U.S.

TJF
Group co-founder and creative director Paola DeLuca will kick-off the launch with a keynote speech at the JCK Show in Las Vegas on June 4. She will present
“Overviews of Season 2011 – Macro-Trends,” and discuss TJF’s four “macro
trends” and three supporting “micro trends” for each.

TJF
produces a quarterly consumer publication, TJF Magazine, and an annual Trend
Book.

“One of TJF Group’s unique benefits to our industry is in forecasting trends 18
months out so that clients like Emporio Armani, Pandora and Swarovski can
update their collections and work with their manufacturers to design product
attuned to shifts in consumer behavior,” Nancy Robey, TJF Group’s U.S. director,
said in a statement.

The
company recently added U.S. designer firms Slane and Ippolita as new clients,
among others.
