"All right, everyone, gird your loins" — (Stanley Tucci, The Devil Wears Prada). It's here once again: Fashion Month. And we know exactly what fashion instagram accounts to keep you in the know! The month-long, four-city world tour (held biannually in February and September) showcases the newest trends and styles– a glimpse into our wardrobe for next season, envisioned by the industry's most brilliant design minds. While at its' core, fashion week is quintessentially a trade show for press, buyers, and industry professionals– the Internet, social media, and the almighty iPhone have transformed it into a moment for all fashion enthusiasts. Fashion Month is like the Super Bowl of the fashion industry if you will.
With fashion becoming democratized and gradually expanding beyond its traditional confines, it's created space for many voices and viewpoints to participate. The blog era of the 2000s saw pioneers like Susanna Lau (Susie Bubble), the OG Queen of Millennials Tavi Gevinson, and The Godfather of modern street style photography, Scott Schuman, breaking through the conventional fashion format armed with nothing but a camera, WordPress, and a dream. This era overlapped with the emergence of Tumblr and the early days of Instagram, marked by the vintage brown Instax camera icon, where fashion-obsessed kids posted their favorite blue-haired Kylie Jenner looks, all things Riccardo Tisci's Givenchy, and sepia-toned outfit lays on their Instagram grids. Now, that same fascination with expressing one's fashion interests, opinions, and style has evolved into the current age of content creation across all social platforms.
Now, whatever your fashion shtick, ten times out of ten, there's someone out there speaking to your beat. Fascinated by the role of a fashion editor during NYFW? You'll find tons of editors dashing between shows, showrooms, and appointments, all while crafting, editing, and planning content and providing their followers with a firsthand account.
