Link to article: The 20 Most Influential Personal Style Bloggers Right Now – Fashionista.
Just in time for our “how does fashion move (here)” discussion!
What I find especially interesting is how they determine their ranking in making these bloggers the “most influential in the world” (the world!)
Notice how all the influence (except #3 “It Factor”) is measured in Internet traffic and positioning. Not that that is in any way odd – these are after all bloggers, but the complete absence of overlap with any other media is significant, especially coming directly out of a McLuhan lecture…
I would also wonder about the preponderance of Los Angeles-based bloggers. If it isn’t just bias on the behalf of the Fashionista editors (and it might well be, but how to determine this?) then what does that mean?
