Throughout my entire life, from the time I was born,
I have always had a passion for “fashion“.
I decided to take that passion to next level and start my clothing line called TYE which stands for “Talented Young Entrepreneur”. However, from time to time, I like to keep up with current fashions on various blog sites. Today’s blog will elaborate on three of many blogs that I view to gain insight and keep up with society’s point of view on the fashion industry.
The Fashion Bomb daily blog site really catches my eye when it comes to fashion from an urban
perspective. The purpose of the Fashion Bomb blog site, which was written by fashion
journalist Claire Sulmers in 2006, is to” provide daily doses of chic to stylistas of color” (The Fashion Bomb).
The web’s number one destination or urban fashion is “The Fashion Bomb”. With Claire having an interest for style and writing, she decided to create a fashion blog for sassy, making it the number one destination. Claire’s idea was carefully crafted after recognizing a lack of online sources and few in print for urban fashion. Claire has been interviewed as a style expert and trendsetter for the Wall Street Journal, the New York Post, and Time Magazine, just to name a few; Ms. Sulmers has even been a contributor for Essence and Italian Vogue. The Fashion bomb is news, with a combination of personal diary. For those connoisseurs of contemporary style, the Fashion Bomb seeks to be a global online destination for them now incorporating several contributors. The fashion bombs audience caters to those people who are connoisseurs of the urban fashion style.
The second eye-catching blog that captures my essence of style in fashion is that of Couture in
the City. Couture in the City is a blog site, focusing on the latest in fashion designers, beauty, celebrity style, trends, what to wear and how-to solutions. The editor and chief of Couture in the City is Angelique.
Having a style classified as casual, classic, and rocker chic, and lately adapting to color, Angelique’s style revolves around the mood she’s in. The purpose of Couture in the City blog is for women like Angelique to be able to find some of the latest must have items of the season or steal a look of a celebrity and get it for a whole lot less. This blogging site is definitely personal diary with inserts of news on fashion reaching an audience of everyday
women looking for a reasonable way to be fashionable.
Mrs. Simmons and the entire Simmons family are major moguls, and pioneers of the fashion and hip hop industry. They are my all-time top favorite celebrity family! Kimora Lee Simmons is one of “the top hardest working” mothers in Hollywood, according to Forbes magazine. KLS give insight on the life of Kimora Lee Simmons, and her “Life in the Fab Lane” and perspective on fashion. I would say that this blog is a combination of her personal diary and celebrity news. KLS audience is majorly fans of Mrs. Simmons in the teen, young adult and adult women age groups.
How do the three bloggers differ? The three bloggers, which I have chosen differ in age, profession, and
celebrity stature to the everyday person. I have chosen a blogger who is a fashion journalist, one is an everyday person with a passion for fashion like myself, and then a celebrity fashion designer, model, and fashion icon. I would have to say that out of the three, I prefer the celebrity! Reading her blogs and keeping up with her shows and family just gives you so much insight into the fashion industry and aspirations to mold your family into a dynamic family of entrepreneurs as the Simmons are.
If I were to continue blogging beyond this point, my content would consist of fashion, music, celebrities, and
everyday struggles of college student aspiring to better themselves through their education. The style would be very classic yet chic, with and urban casual feel, allowing interactivity with followers, and seeking contributions
from other fellow bloggers.
