La rentrée came and went and with it a significant lack of sleep and motivation, none of which were for any of the right reasons. New York Fashion Week has also passed and the fashion crew have since travelled to London for the next instalment from Fashion Month. I enjoyed what NYC had to offer from the front row courtesy of all those dedicated fashion bloggers sharing their Instagram photographs and Snapchat videos live with the world right to the comfort of our own homes via our phones.
Here I sit two weeks on, it’s almost the first time I’ve come to my computer willingly during that time, and I wonder what I could share with you. For all the exciting personal blog posts would still require more energy than I can muster at this point. Instead, I would love to share a video from the Vogue Series with the incredible Alexa Chung. It is a series that Matt and I often watch together and perhaps should have shared with you months ago but it all still remains current, relevant and incredibly interesting.
In the final episode of Alexa Chung’s second Vogue series, our host analyses one of the most disruptive trends in fashion over the last 10 years: blogging. After looking back at its evolution and the key players, Chung heads off to meet Leandra Medine to find out how her blog Man Repeller went from school project to profitable business, and get her advice for anyone looking to succeed.
Another series from British Vogue that has really been my saving grace this week was the new two-part BBC 2 documentary Absolutely Fashion: Inside British Vogue which goes behind the scenes at the fashion magazine. It follows documentary-maker Richard Macer during his nine months working and documenting along side the brilliant minds that make everything tick as British Vogue. If you haven’t seen it yet, I urge that you do … You can catch it here.
