The most exciting innovations in fashion are happening off the runway and recorded in the online diaries of trend-setters from around the world.
The real movers and shakers in the fashion world aren’t sitting in the front rows of runway shows or presenting their collections during fashion week. They are flipping through the racks of vintage stores, plundering their parents’ closets, and scouring eBay for shoes. They are also blogging about their ideas and finds on the web—part of a complex network that is a breeding ground for ideas for the fashion industry. Style Diaries features nearly fifty of today’s most compelling fashion bloggers in colorful spreads that reveal who they are, what they wear, and how they feel about fashion. Fully illustrated, this bookshowcases each subject’s personal style; and the bloggers’ answers to questions such as “What is the best purchase you ever made?” “What is something that you would never wear?”“How do you get dressed in the morning and before a night out?” are as insightful as they are fun to read. Style Diaries offers readers access to a vibrant community of interesting, intelligent people who may very well be the most influential forces behind tomorrow’s trends.
