Little fashion Who is Who from London Fashion Week

In September I was so lucky to attend three fashion weeks, in Copenhagen, Vienna and London – it was the first time for me as blogger and photographer since I started out on blogging in February.

One of my personal highlights was to finally see those bloggers at London Fashion week, who’s blogs I always love to read and follow, those who are known in the entire blogging community and way beyond. I thought of how I could share something that may have value to fellow bloggers or those who maybe consider to become an author of their own blog. So I put together a little who is who – a guide of the best bloggers and most important people in the fashion industry. My stay has been short and there are certainly many more great bloggers, publishers and fashion icons out there – but I was so pleased about whom I stumbled over during two days of London Fashion Week – I can say I definitely met my heroes 😉

When arriving at the Somerset house, main venue of the London Fashion Week, Anna dello Russo, editor at large at Vogue Japan and one of the most influential fashion icons, entered  in an amazing white Tom Ford backless dress the London Exhibition, where London’s most established designers exhibit. Anna dello Russo entered the building to try on a hat by a Londoner milliner, the hat was particularly lovely, and the whole spectacle truly delightful to watch. Although I think later, when I saw her at the Topshop venue, she must have opted for another hat model.

Not long until Anna dello Russo’s  launch of accessories and luggage line for H&M– it is set to start on October, 4th. And not surprisingly Anna dello Russo has an adorable blog too on Nowmanifest, where you’d also find the blogs of  BRYANBOY,  FASHIONTOAST, INDUSTRIE MAGAZINE, MR. BLASBERG, STYLE BY KLING and NET-A-PORTER FASHION FIX.  To me this woman is legendary because she has never been afraid to show that fashion can be fun and because she exudes so much joye de vivre, quintessential for fashion and to be a true fashionista.

I snapped trend setter Olivia Palermo, when entering the Topshop Unique show. We all know her from street style photographs, where she is wearing spot on outfits with the well-known Olivia Palermo ease. I once read an interesting article about her, how she got her foot into the industry by being enormously persistent to socialize with the most influential individuals from the fashion industries. If this magazine article is reliable, than this is in fact something that we can all learn from her. I cannot imagine that there is one fashion show where Olivia Palermo did, will or could not sit in the  front row – I always take my hat off to people so successful. Of course she has an amazing blog too of which I especially love the tips section.

I was so pleased to see all of these personal style bloggers – I must admit my heart jumped for joy! I so much enjoy reading their articles, I think there isn’t actually one day I don’t stop by one or the other’s blog and I follow all their other social media. I am talking about: Jessica Stein from  Tuula, Andy Torres from Style Scrapbook, Sandra Hagelstam from 5 inch and up, Carolina Engman from the Fashion Squad, Chiara Ferragni from the Blonde Salad and Nicole Warne from Garry Pepper Vintage. Having watched what they are doing, how they do it and listened to all the helpful advice they give in interviews I must say, I have learned heaps. You are able to imagine the joy then – I was even more pleased that Chiara Ferragni posed for my camera upon request.

Chiara was working a cool layering look on that day, alongside a Burberry trench, which inspires me for my autumn wardrobe.

I couldn’t help it but taking a snap of her wonderful Giuseppe Zanotti sandals as well – she is someone you want to photograph all day long and never fails with her exceptional styling.

Face hunting around the world, Yvan Rodic is the man behind the Face Hunter blog, where he captures, not just the beautiful faces of the fashion world, but the most noticeable street styles from across the globe. He writes a weekly column at the Observer.

When later I hit the Mahiki club, for some after show partying, I got lucky again – and bumped into Susie Lau of Style Bubble, who is not just extremely unique in her style and point of view, but likes to keep her writing flow going – yes – even  more than me 🙂 – going to her blog encourages me to write about any topic that I am interested in and that goes beyond fashion and to write in general when I wish to.

Wether you are an aspiring blogger or fashion journalist or a trend setter to be, you should always keep an eye on these blogs. For useful advice in fashion blogging, marketing and everything else that comes with the subject I love going to the Independent fashion blogger web site and browsing through their articles.

Now I can’t wait to hear, who your blog crush is. Don’t forget to drop me a link, so I can go and check them out!
