As I have recently started blogging about fashion, I have been checking other fashion blogs, websites, Facebook and Twitter pages. There are a lot of very good ones; some are updated more often than others, and some feature interviews, videos, and more. I’ve been learning a lot about fashion, not just from the consumer’s point of view but also from the business side of fashion. These are websites and blogs that I am exploring; you can check these out if you are not familiar with them. These are just a very few of what’s available online. I am finding new ones daily. If you know of some really interesting and good ones, do share.
Marketing/business fashion websites/blogs:
Fashionably Marketing: great for social media and marketing specifically geared for the fashion industry, whether they are showcasing new and current fashion designers, offering marketing advice and/or campaigns using social media and mobile apps, and covering current fashion happenings.
Business Of Fashion: one I’ve recently discovered that has an international focus. It’s about business and the creative side of fashion; they recently had a live streaming interview for their Fashion Pioneer. It reads like a digital fashion newspaper.
WWD (Women’s Wear Daily): daily magazine (weekday) with digital version; I enjoy their coverage of all things fashion as well as Footwear News and Eyescoop.
Fashion and Film:
ShowStudio: it is the “Home of Fashion Film” with Nick Knight the famed fashion photographer as a founder.
W magazine’s Fashion on Film: W magazine wants to become “Fashion Youtube”, with their online version of their magazine offering fashion on film. They launched a “Remaking of W”. Should be exciting to see how that works out.
Slaves to Fashion: this Glamour magazine blog is a fun read. There are seven blogs, but STF is my fave.
Vogue Daily: I do like the videos on Vogue.com as well, but Vogue Daily is a fun, fashionable read.
Stylish Fashion Websites:
Style.com: fashion shows, news, lookbooks, trends and more. This is a ‘go-to’ resource fashion website.
Couturious: Fashion styling fun with featured stylists and a designer profile.
Clashe.com: your opportunity to have an online lookbook, and put together collections.
Fashion Educational & Fun:
FashionChalkboard: FIDM alumnus Ludmilla Adams was my teacher at Trade Tech; this is her fabulous website on Illustrator and Photoshop. (I have a slight bias!)
RetailAGoGo: helps with building a fashion business (created by FashionMarketing.me); online seminars and webinars, too!
Ones that I am exploring….
HauteNet: site for fashion professionals to find jobs, network
This blog is not an endorsement of any of the abovementioned websites and blogs. Just my opinion and desire to share those links. I follow most on Facebook and Twitter as well; that way I get updated on all of them and other fashion websites and blogs conveniently. The Internet has such great fashion resources!
