The agreement we make with the forecast companies is that we only allow current students to use these materials.  This is because they are exceedingly expensive and we don't want to put FIT in any kind of competition with the forecasting services for their use by industry people.  We do have many other forecasting magazines you can use in the library. They encompass pretty thorough coverage of both the runway shows and color and trend research.

In order to request an appointment to see these magazines and other material which we can make available for alumni and other visitors, see Visit the Library
