Special thanks to Tachydromos Magazine for having us.
"Independent fashion bloggers are the voice of buyers, whereas fashion editors are the voice of sellers" is what's featured next to my name and indeed this is what I said, word-for-word. By no means does this translate though into "independent fashion bloggers will tell the truth, whereas fashion editors are those devils wearing Prada, on a mission to trap you into buying".
Fashion editors will show you what the companies are selling this season. Someone has to. Indie fashion bloggers will show you which of that they bought/liked and what they did with it. Someone had to. The first one gets paid, the second one pays, the first one acts, the second reacts. Someone always has to.
It's like two different sides of the same coin: 'professional' and 'personal'. Distinction brings balance. That's how I see it.
Other fashion bloggers on Tachydromos today: The Soho Symposium, Fashion Architect, Chloe in the Sky with Diamonds and Life Full of Fashion. However, the bigger picture is fashion blogging and not just us. We are always honoured to be featured, but we only represent rather than dominate. Our side-menus are full of links. If fashion is your thing, start checking them out.
