Style Bubble blogger Susanna Lau is writing a book. About what? That remains to be seen, but apparently it’s requiring a heck of a lot of international travel. The big-time British blogger revealed the matter in a post on her blog:
There is a reason why I’m confuzzling you all on Instagram with my jaunty travels from Sydney to Tokyo and now to Hong Kong. The reason being is that I’m gathering pics and words galore for my upcoming book. Yes, I’m writing a book. Has it been formally announced? I don’t think so… does it require a formal announcement? Probably not. And for good reason too seeing as I haven’t quite formulated the right words (or media blurb) to describe this thing that I’m penning.
Her hypothesis: that the ‘of the minute’ insidery views once offered by bloggers are now being dispensed by ‘true’ fashion insiders. She writes, “With everyone from powerhouse editors-in-chief to creative directors and standard-bearing critics playing the social-media game, the singular advantage that social media once offered bloggers is no longer so clear. The same intimate tone, once unique to those initial disrupters, can now be found in the Twitter feeds of print folks such as [Eva] Chen, Derek Blasberg, and Mickey Boardman. They live-blog while at shows, while zipping through airports, while touring art exhibitions, while vacationing. They un-self-consciously share from all corners of their fashion lives.”
She continues, “The distance between the Establishment and fashion’s once-dazzling revolutionaries has narrowed, and there is minimal distinction between them. Because what the fashion industry loves, it woos — then swallows whole.” Ok.
Robin Givhan’s article centers mostly on fashion shows and their super exclusive nature. But the fashion industry is not just about seats at fashion shows. It used to be only celebrities, the rich and famous, that saw fashion shows and got the first chance to see new collections. Today, it’s about translating trends (which can all be viewed online) to the masses.
Bloggers interface with their audience in ways a traditional journalist usually can’t, because they are more relatable, like friends who give you the scoop. These bloggers are often people we can relate to and aspire to be like, instead of trying to connect with an editor.
