Youth! Beauty! Fashion!

Fashion Snoops is a database for the fashion industry showcasing trends, forecasting styles and compiling retail reports. Fashion Snoops already includes sections for Ladies, Men, Girls, Boys, Home and Accessories and it has recently added two new sections: Youth and Beauty.

The Youth tab "captures the lifestyle, trends and movements that affect the fashion choices of this generation." A blend of street art, street style, runway fashion, and profiles of "influencers," the Youth sections is buzzing with energy.

The new Beauty tab showcases trends in runway and street make up. There are tabs for trend forecasts, recaps of the fashion season and featured style inspiration- such as make up inspired by The Hunger Games.

Dive into the new Fashion Snoops sections and be inspired! They can be accessed by Palomar College students, faculty and staff from the Library's article pages:

If you have any questions about Fashion Snoops, or any other library resource, stop by the Reference Desk and a librarian will be happy to assist you.
