The highly visualized lectures also give a great behind the scenes look on the work of a trend forecaster. Students learn the theory behind future trends, after which they are given assignments where they will visualize their own thoughts on the future. These future trends are translated into products, business strategies, services, and marketing concepts.

Teaching​ Testimonials

 

Colleague Teacher Jan de Bouvrie Academy

Antoinette is highly deserving of a positive testimonial.

The Lady in Blu spots upcoming societal changes and trends before most of us are able to see them. Even with very few signals, she knows exactly what is coming and how to explain and provide context. The process of spotting trends like this is highly useful for design students. Her lessons have opened the eyes of our students to the inspiring and dilligent way in which she works. Her teachings show that Antoinette not only has professional knowledge, she holds a strong personal involvement to her subject too. This means she is always able to discuss personal backgrounds of students and empower the student to use this to their advantage. The empowerment she gives has a truly interdisciplinair influence on our students. 

As a fellow teacher who has worked alongside Antoinette, I highly appreciate her teachings.

Student Jan des Bouvrie Academy / Saxion

The Lady in Blu gives excellent guidance as a teacher, and is not afraid to speak up to give proper feedback. Her vision is very positive and direct, which means the advice she gives will truly empower and help you improve.

Student Jan des Bouvrie Academy / Saxion

The first time I got in touch with The Lady in Blu was when she gave a class to my academy. I have always wanted to start my own business when I graduate as an interior designer and stylist. As so, her classes opened a new door to me. She really inspired me to start thinking about the way I am going to manage my future business. I highly recommend others to consider a closer look into The Lady in Blu and soak up her wisdom! I wanted to have a closer insight so I started an internship at her business, till this day I am very glad with the decision I have made and all the things I have learned.
