Looking for fashion trends before they are trends.

I live on Maui. When I lived in NYC, I knew about what the next big trend was before it was a trend. By the time it was a trend, I considered it outmoded. Now I live in a cultural and fashion backwater. When I moved here fashion was literally 10-years behind the time. Now with the Internet we are a little more in the mode.
About 4 years ago, I read that blue nail polish would be a trend in a few years, now this trend is passe, and of course everyone here is wearing blue nails. We haven't got to matte nails yet, and that trend is aging fast.
So, where can I learn online or in print what the trends are? W, Vogue, and other fashion magazines are not current enough. The best store we have is Macy's, which I always considered matronly. I am specifically interested in makeup, nails, perfume, and women's fashion.
I am not interested in what is trendy NOW, but what the trend will be.
