I’ve been on a mission searching for fashion designers or fashion design companies who use their blogs to effectively promote their businesses. This list will inevitably grow, so if you’d like to be included send me your link.
The Smashing Blog – ( UPDATE: This Blog Is No Longer Available ) All Things New and Smashing From the Front Lines of The indie Fashion Revolution. This blog spotlights young fashion designers and also have some great interviews of up and coming designers. The smashing darling website is also a great place to sell your new collections; great for young fashion designers.
Independent Fashion Bloggers – A Fashion community made up of fashion design bloggers and pros sharing ideas and growing their businesses. A growing resource of information for young fashion designers or anyone in the fashion industry.
Fashion Incubator – Lessons from the sustainable factory floor. Definitely a great resource for fashion designers, pattern makers or any fashion professional looking for advice from freelancing to billing clients to pattern making tutorials.
Jack + Bill – ( UPDATE: This Blog Is No Longer Available ) Jack + Bill is a public relations agency dedicated to identifying, branding and publicizing emerging fashion talent. I need to do a bit more research on them to get more details on how they business, but seem to have a genuine interest in growing young fashion designers.
