4th panel discussion, Hall 1, “Style blogs – the democratization of fashion?”. The movement began someday in the early noughties – and changed fashion media fundamentally. People took their camera, went out on the streets, discovered styles and presented them on their blogs. In the last years the number of fashionblogs increased in the same way as the number of recipients did. “Classical” fashion media like Vogue or Haper’s Bazaar integrated blogs on their pages. Time to ask bloggers about their work and point of view in fashion.
