Does This Mean We’ll See JWoww At Fashion Week?

It isn’t a good day on the internet without a bit of “Jersey Shore” news, right? Snooki is campaigning for her own dating show, and Jenni “JWoww” decided that she’s primed to become a fashion designer based on her personal style (which she calls “Sexy Sophisticated”). Uh, OK. But while LiLo’s taking her leggings line and expanding into clothes, JWoww is focusing on one item — her now infamous yellow shirt, if you can even call it that. That stretch of fabric she loves to wear out “battling” on the dance floor can now be yours for the unreasonable price of $39.99. Designed in six different colors, the party top is said to be custom made to your body type, because, “You don’t want to be that person at the club that see’s [sic] someone else wearing the same thing.” How long until the entire Jersey Shore is inundated with JWoww style copycats?

NY Times Realizes Fashion Bloggers Matter — Three Months Late

Given that it was printed in a newspaper, the New York Times piece “Bloggers Crash the Front Row” was rather generous towards fashion blogs, acknowledging that we provide an of-the-moment service that magazines simply cannot. I’m not going to bother telling you that fashion blogs matter, because you’re blog readers and you already know that.

While it is true that fashion bloggers sat in the front row at various fashion shows, that was in September. As in almost four months ago. As in this has already been widely noted online. Yet, in swoops The New York Times as 2010 rolls around, there to make the power of the blogger “official.” Oh please. Keep reading »

Don’t you hate it when the tree wears you, and you don’t wear the tree? Pity the Monica Maria Escobar model who wore this greenery. [Colombia, 11/27/09] Keep reading »

The Old-School Fashion Hierarchy Is Falling Down

What would the fashion industry look like if it shrugged off the exclusivity that has characterized it for, well, centuries, and cut out the middleman? It seems like the process is already well underway. This year’s Fashion Weeks had everyone wondering the same thing, and the buzz is best summed up thusly:

“The shows during September and October were a first glimpse of what the elitist fashion world could soon become: a business where designers take their collections directly to customers, no longer filtered through fashion editors at glossy magazines and buyers at top stores.”

But does that really mean the end of old-school power players like, say, Anna Wintour and Joe Zee? [New York Times] Keep reading »
