Trend forecasting agency Mudpie has opened new offices in Sao Paulo, Los Angeles and Bangkok to take its trend books and bespoke apparel, colour, graphic and design services to new markets.

The new locations follow the launch of a Mudpie Australia office in Sydney earlier this year, and mean the 18-year-old firm now has branded sales sites operating in all corners of the globe. 

Mudpie Brasil is partnered with Guelfi Representacoes Ltda in Sao Paulo, Brazil; Mudpie USA West Coast partners with Pat Brandt Company in Los Angeles, California; and Mudpie Thailand is partnered with Mode Publicity Asia in Bangkok, Thailand.

These alliances will also help boost demand for the Mpdclick trend intelligence website, which offers forecasting and trend prediction resources to help the apparel design process.

Mudpie has also added a sixth trend book title to its range - Print & Pattern Trends AW1011 - and is planning a Sports garment, graphic and colour trend book this year as well.
