How Fashion Bloggers are Democratizing the Fashion World

There was a time in fashion history when what was fashionable was only known to the elite aka rich and famous. When it was released they were the only ones who could afford those new styles. So much has changed since then and thankfully more people are able to get in touch with what’s in vogue.

Styles are no longer something beyond reach. Not only that, we can see the latest designs even before they hit the stores.

I believe democratizing fashion has helped evolve people’s orientation to what is fashionable. I also believe that it gives room for creativity. And as more pieces flood in we get exposed to the endless possibilities of ways we can mix and match those pieces to create something we call our own.

When I sit back to analyse how far fashion has come I see a pattern being revealed. I realized that we fashion bloggers play a very important role in democratizing fashion. We follow our love and passion for fashion, and have become one of the quickest means of disseminating and declaring what is termed fashionable. Just to give you a clear picture of how we are able to achieve this, here are some things that will interest you.

 

Fashion bloggers get you connected with what is trending

We are dedicated to informing our readers about what’s trending now in the fashion industry. By keeping our readers informed, we help them keep up with the latest styles and trends, and what’s happening in the world of fashion.

 

Fashion bloggers want to share what’s happening in the fashion industry

The reason why fashion was not accessible to all, was because only a certain set of people were invited to fashion shows and were aware of the upcoming designs and trends. Fashion shows were also not streamed online so there was no way for the general public to get involved.

As time passed by and things started to change, thanks to fashion bloggers and social media. Fashion bloggers not only share what’s trending on the runway, they also give tips, hacks and affordable alternatives that will help their readers mimic what’s trending in a way that is the most affordable.

Fashion bloggers are the voice of consumers

We are so fortunate to witness an era where our opinions about fashion matter. We fashion bloggers are so much closer to consumers, we know what the people are looking for. Our influence is so strong that fashion designers and retailers tend to listen. What this means is that fashion bloggers have turned out to be the voice of the voiceless.

Fashion is no longer one way traffic. We are able to voice out what consumers are agitating for, which gives fashion designers a clear picture of what the people want.

Style Icon – Kylie Jenner

Kylie Jenner is all over the news with her new reality TV show – Life of Kylie. I have seen a few seconds of a clip of the show, and it looks good. I am no longer a huge fan of reality TV shows, especially those of the Kardashian/Jenner family. Which is why I am not watching Life of Kylie, but I am sure millions of Kylie’s fans are watching.

Kylie Jenner has grown up before our very eyes, and her style has evolved in the last few years. This young Style Icon keeps making a fashion statement every time she steps out. And guess what? She knows it!

“I never thought I was normal, never tried to be normal” – Kylie Jenner.

Kylie Jenner is famous for experimenting with her facial and body features (which I don’t admire), but she is also fashion risk taker, and I like that about her. She is not afraid to play with her look, and the best part of it is that she nails it overtime.

If I were asked to describe her personal style in 3 words, it would be – trendy, provocative, stylish. When it comes to fashion and style, Kylie Jenner slays!

Kylie Jenner seems to be taking fashion and beauty lessons from her big sister – Kim Kardashian. The good thing is that those lessons are working for her. She actually looks like a mini version of Kim now with all the changes she is making.

Apart from this beauty’s stylish fashion sense, I also admire her working ethics. Some days ago, I came across the book – How to be an Overnight Success by Maria Hatzistefanis, and Kylie Jenner’s attention to her brand and her hard-working nature was mentioned repeatedly in the book. It is good to see Kylie doing well outside the Keeping up with the Kardashians reality show. As the youngest of the sisters, I am happy to see she has her business head on. Whatever she touches, turns to gold!

Emily Ratajkowski Covers Glamour UK August 2017

The stunning Emily Ratajkowski – the 26-year-old actress, model and UN Women Goodwill Ambassador, covers Glamour UK August 2017. This is her first Glamour magazine cover, and she looks lovely on it. I love the entire look. The background, her hair and makeup score full points.

 

GLAMOUR_AUG-17

 

The cover girl chats with Glamour about everything, from feminism to her career. Here are some excerpts from the interview

 

On Feminism

“To start saying that certain people need to have a license to be feminist is insane…Emma Watson said feminism isn’t some kind of tool to beat other women with, it’s supposed to be a freedom of choice. And I believe in sexuality. I think it’s a wonderful thing and, if anything, I want women to understand their own sexuality outside of a patriarchal male gaze. We’re the core of sexual beings, and I think that’s something that should be celebrated rather than attacked.

 

I agree with her completely. I have written about feminism and me being a feminist a few times on here, and it is a topic I would still keep talking about because I am passionate about it. Feminism should not be a dirty word. It should be celebrated rather than attacked!

On Social Media

“It’s not real, it’s a version of reality, and as a visual person who loves art, photographs, fashion, I’m kind of interested in fantasy…But it’s important to realise that some people have a hard time distinguishing what’s fantasy and what’s reality. We owe it to our followers to show the glam, but then also the real you.”

 

I love this woman already! She breaks it down so well. Many of us are obsessed with social media and the vanity that comes with it. Many believe all they see online, and aspire to be that, which is all good, but we should remember that what we see on social media is not always the real deal.

 

I am reading this issue already and I am loving it. Will you be reading? What do you think of this cover and Emily Ratajkowski? Please drop your comments below, let’s talk.
