THE FASHION BLOGGER: PROFESSIONAL FIGURE

The Fashion Blogger is an independent professional figure that redefined, lately, the figure of the fashion journalist, by using all the new technologies and platform, such as Social networks, to reach great amounts of people for very low costs. The reliability, independence, and the inspiration of some pioneers of this new job, made Fashion Blogger’s reputation stronger, so much so that today it’s considered a pretty important and crucial figure into fashion companies, which sponsor and invest in the communication actually through this professional figure.

The fashion blogger has a pretty wide action range: there are fashion blogs mainly oriented to fashion week’s runways and the high fashion world, and there are ones in which the author suggests the cheapest and trendiest outfits at the same time. Many fashion bloggers write exclusively to suggest about purchases, as if they were a sort of virtual personal shoppers, while other ones propose their own personal style and yet other ones give practical advice to manage everyday “outfits”.

The successful fashion blogger takes this role as a proper professional, becoming an icon of style and a source of inspiration for the internet users who are interested in fashion.
