Another Fashion Week season is here!! 😆 All the new pieces and collections…so excited!! How do I stay up to date about what’s going on in the fashion industry without actually being/working in the industry? Online news platforms!
Here is a list of online news platforms that I have found very helpful these last two years and think every fashion enthusiast or lover should follow. I use a couple of sites specifically for fashion week shows, but theses are the ones I use on a regular basis.
Now, for my street wear fashion lovers out there, these two news sites are your bat cave (whether the bat cave is a good reference is the question lol ). This is your one stop for daily updates on the latest street wear brand, shoes, sports, music, arts and even tech. If you are one of those people who absolutely love sneakers, you should definitely subscribe. These two sites always have photos of the most amazing sneakers, from Adidas to the latest pair of YEEZY. During Fashion week, you can be sure to find amazing shots of the street wear people are rocking. If you are not interested in street wear, I would still recommend subscribing to one of the two because you could get inspired by some of their posts.
Although these two are free subscription, access at certain point is limited. This being said, what you do get access to is more than enough to keep you posted on what is going on in the industry. Business of Fashion (BOF) is actually the very first fashion relation website I ever subscribed to. BOF and Vogue are the main stops for basically everything you need to know that’s going on in the industry. From the high streets, major sports brand new, collaborations, to Haute Coutour news. The difference between BOF and Vogue, is that Vogue seems to focus more on the artistic aspect of the industry, while BOF gives you everything you want to know. BOF gives you artistic aspect of the industry, the managerial and also the financial aspect of the industry. For example, when the creative director of your favorite brand decides to step down and a new person steps in. Vogue will keep you posted on the latest fashion trend, latest designers and every celebrity news…within the fashion context.
There are loads of fashion news sites out there, free and paid. There is WWD, Elle, Harper Bazaar, the list goes on. I personally use the four above and I honestly they are more than enough to keep me updated. Some might argue that a paid subscription is the way to go as you get more perks, I wouldn’t know as I have never paid for a subscription. I do know some people who have and seem to like it. If you are interested in a paid subscription, I believe Vogue and Elle are having promotions. Vogue has a $6 deal for 6 issues at which you get a digital, hard copy and a gift.
How do you guys stay posted on what’s going on in the industry?…the latest trend, the latest brands, leave a comment below.
As always, thank you for stopping by. Till next time, loads of love.
