    大家好!
    I'm not sure about the Chinese translation for: "Maybe they can start a new trend." In the context in which one day some people decide to go working wearing a Mao suit... Here's my attempt:
    也许他们能带起一股新潮流.

    Is it possible to use 开始 instead of 带起?
    也许他们能开始一股新潮流.

    先谢谢你们!

    你好,
    开启 may work( however带起 is the best) but not 开始 which is normally used intranstively.

    The word that you are looking for is 掀起.

    掀起 is ok. It is more like a CHinese usage.

    I'm comfortable with both 带起 and 掀起.
