An Illuminated View on Blogging

“I think that the most creative designers all come from London but it’s almost the step sister of other fashion cities,” laments Diane Pernet from her blog A Shaded View on Fashion, “I don’t know understand why people keep passing London by; so many fashion buyers don’t come.”

London might not be getting the attention it deserves but blogging certainly is, and Pernet can’t help but think that this is a good thing: “it makes fashion more democratic because before it was something kept for 250 people who were privy to going into the show. It created a certain distance between fashion and the general public. Now having a blog means that anybody everywhere can see what’s going on.” Long live London, and long live blogging.
