The Doneger Group, David analyzes trends influencing big-picture developments in style, culture and society. A high-profile personality, David’s wit and wisdom have earned him a stellar reputation over his 50 years in the fashion industry. He is known as “America’s Foremost Fashion Forecaster” and is the most quoted authority in the industry, his views and quips appearing in various publications and on television.
A native of Ohio, David began his career there in a small department store. In the 1960s he moved to London where he quickly established himself as a leading fashion artist published in Vogue, Women’s Wear Daily and The London Sunday Times. In 1969, he helped to establish the “fashion service” segment of the industry and is credited with being the originator of what became known as “trend forecasting” while working for a decade as Creative Director of IM International. He then established TFS The Fashion service and returned to the U.S. as President of that company. He joined The Doneger Group in 1990.
Today David devotes much of his time to public appearances including frequently acting as guest lecturer at LIM College where his daughter, Amanda Hallay, teaches, and where he serves on the Advisory Board.
On Friday, October 19th and Saturday, October 20th professionals from the fashion industry, libraries, archives, academic institutions, publishers, and museums will gather at LIM College for Fashion: Now & Then, a conference on the past, present, and future uses of fashion information that will consist of lectures and panel discussions.
