I’ve had a Vogue subscription for years, thinking it was the only go-to for fashion news/opinions/etc.

Boy, was I wrong!

As I’ve worked on my collection, and done my damndest to self-educate about the fashion industry, I’ve found some really helpful resources.  This tweet from Arlan really bring it home:

I make it a point to follow all of these people/publications across platforms, so that I gain knowledge as I bop around.  I also spend an hour everyday going through and reading as much as possible.  While I love an editorial or designer profile, the list below focuses on sharing resources that critique/analyze/etc.  For that reason, I’ve left traditional mags off.

So with that, let’s get learning!

#1 Fashion News Site: Fashionista.com

This has been an incredibly valuable website, in that the writers are willing to dig in and critique fashion/share their opinions in more op-ed style pieces.  The careers section has also been helpful for me, I’ve landed several internships from it.  Tyler McCall, one of their writers, is my fave writer.

#2 Fashion News Site: Business of Fashion

Created to literally discuss the business of fashion (hence the name), I use this as a resource to peek behind the curtain at various houses.  They also have great exclusives.  The BoF podcast isn’t that great, but I’m definitely considering becoming a premium member of the site!

#3 Fashion News Site: ManRepeller

Besides having a great name, this website does a good job of looking at fashion through a more intersectional lens.

#4 Fashion News Site:  The Fashion Law

It’s time to earn about copyright law, mergers, and a host of other legal issues/terms in fashion! I first heard of The Fashion Lawyer when I was working for an IP nonprofit.  I appreciate how the founder, Julie Zerbo, brings in critiques/analyses of the evolving role of fashion journalism.

#5 Fashion News Site. The Curvy Fashionista

Everything that happens in the world of plus size fashion (brand launches, modeling news, etc) hits the homepage of TCF incredibly fast.

#6 Fashion News Site:  The Lingerie Addict//Cora Harrington

Cora Harrington is the founder of the Lingerie Addict.  The website (TLA) has some great information on lingerie, and you should def buy her book, Intimate Detail: How to Choose, Wear, and Love Lingerie – I learned a TON of terms, design methodologies, etc, that I haven’t found in my other readings.

Cora also goes IN on her twitter, critiquing various fashion trends and brands, size/race inclusivity, etc.

#7 Fashion News Site:  Page 11 on 11 Honoree

Half blog and half interviews, 11 Honoree talks luxury plus fashion with folks you need-to-know about.

#8 Fashion News Site:  Glossy Co

Calling all tech and startup nerds. Glossy is a publication that “covers how technology is modernizing the fashion and luxury industries.”

#9 Fashion News Site:  Coveuter

Coveuter offers a BTS look, without seeming artificial or packaged.  They publish such a variety of content, that I had to go to their about page to figure out how exactly what their mission is:

“Known for stunning photography, award-winning writing, and an intimate look at luxury lifestyles and global tastemakers, Coveteur was established in 2011 as a passion project to explore the homes and closets of global street style stars and influencers.”

#10 Fashion News Source: Sarah Conley

These three have some sharp insights and critiques that she shares on Twitter.  I love her insights!

#11 Fashion News Site: M2M | Made to Measure

Okay, so I’m still not 100% clear how I landed on the M2M Facebook page, but I’m SO GLAD I did.  They have great short videos on current designers and analyses of fashion history.
