Last week we spoke about the changing face of Fashion Week, the future of the bi-annual event, and what role bloggers play at Fashion Week. Many of you said one of your favorite things about Fashion Week is the street style. And if Pinterest is any measure of this, the street styles of Fashion Week seem to generate just as much buzz outside the shows, as to what is happening inside the shows. All the major fashion magazines and media outlets cover street style, and now, even retailers are getting in on the act. This image is from an online retailer called Shoptiques.com. Right on their landing page there is an image and link to a story on what their editors will be wearing to Fashion Week. Now it seems, retailers are not only creating the apparel, they are also creating the editorials and acting as new correspondents as well. Be sure to check out this retailer. They showcase boutiques from all over the world and you can shop any of them right from your computer. Genius, yes? And if you love to look at Fashion Week Street style photography then head over to Adam Katz Sinding’s website le-21eme.com. He has to be one of the most interesting street style photographers working today.
The guest lists for the NYFW shows may be getting shorter in the hopes that the event will less of a “circus” but it seems the demand for street style imagery is hotter then ever. With big name publications like Harper’s BAZAAR, Elle, and WWD all pinning street style images like crazy, the question begs, has fashion finally become democratized? What do you think?
