Cali Vintage

Who is your favorite designer of all time? Of 2012?
I was first drawn into the world of fashion as a high-school student looking through the collections of Miuccia Prada. To this day, she is still one of my favorite designers.

Everyday to Runway

Who is your favorite designer of all time? Of 2012?
My favorite designer of all time is Diane von Furstenberg. She consistently puts out amazing feminine work that is flattering and not too trendy. Of 2012, I'm loving the Proenza boys for their daring woven leather pieces.

Fashion Indie

Who is your favorite designer of all time? Of 2012?
The late Alexander McQueen. When I saw his dresses for the first time, they pulled such strong emotions out of me. His clothing is moving, breathtaking, and that is what creative industry is all about.

return to top

Glisters and Blisters

Who is your favorite designer of all time? Of 2012?
Alber Elbaz for Lanvin, Stefano Pilati for YSL, and Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel. I think these 3 always produce amazing collections that I incorporate into my style. The other designers usually come and go on my list depending on the seasons.

Specialize in the two biggest things that make you unique and your point of view special. Use that as a starting point for your blog and stay curious and blog about things that truly interest you!

I am Style-ish

Who is your favorite designer of all time? Of 2012?
It's hard to say but Chanel is a classic that will never go out of style. For 2012, I've loved Proenza Schouler, especially their accessories.

return to top

iStylista

What was the worst fashion trend of 2012?
I never quite got the onesie, dungaree, or unitard look. However, I don't think you can tar jumpsuits with the same brush, as in most cases they had a chic and sophisticated look about them when worn well.

Jennif Hsieh

What is your greatest advice for those aspiring to work in the fashion industry?
One word: network! Don't be afraid to attend events, ask questions, reach out to professors, and make friends. A big part of any industry is getting to know the people in it.

Ladi Like

Who is your favorite designer of all time? Of 2012?
My favorite designer of all time is the late great Alexander McQueen! His work was truly art on the runway! My favorite designer of 2012 is Korto Momolu. I had my eye on Korto back when she was a contestant on Project Runway and admired her use of bold color and flattering silhouettes. I am impressed by every single piece in her Spring 2013 collection.

Le Happy

Just be yourself and post good content if you are going to create a blog. Try to be aware of the trends but dont let them control you. Be creative and come up with unique ideas.

Live Love Fashion

What was the worst fashion trend of 2012?
I would say that I'm not impressed by the Jil Sander paper bag...it's clearly overpriced. The Chanel oversized bag is also not a winner in my eyes. I think it only works on the runway.

Mocha Soy Whippy

Who is your favorite designer of all time? Of 2012?
The past year or two, I have completely fallen for the brand, Carven. For all time, I'd have to go with a timeless classic brand - like Chanel or Chloe.

return to top

Modly Chic

What was the worst fashion trend of 2012?
I'm going to say the drop-crotch pants are the worst trend of 2012. They are really not that flattering. I was glad to see they only had a few moments of glory and not a long-lasting lifetime.

return to top

My Edit

What is your greatest advice for those aspiring to work in the fashion industry?
I think anyone wanting to get into the fashion industry should know that it is not as glamourous as one would probably imagine. It takes a lot of hard work and often times it takes failure, but if you love it, it can be a rewarding journey.

My Stylist, Kristy

What is your greatest advice for those aspiring to work in the fashion industry?
I feel like if you are aspiring to work in the hair/fashion industry it is important and crucial to keep inspired. Allow your surroundings to inspire you and take over as you create. Also, to be yourself. This is the only way to create an effortless signature to your work.

Oh To Be a Muse

Who is your favorite designer of all time? Of 2012?
My favorite designer of all time is Marchesa. Georgina and Keren know how to drape a dress to give a woman an ethereal princess look that can still be totally wearable. For 2012, I think Elie Saab at Paris Fashion Week was amazing. The hues and the femininity of the collection really stood out to me.

On the Racks

What was the worst fashion trend of 2012?
I personally don't think there is a right or wrong with fashion. For me it's all about expressing yourself and being creative... just love what you are wearing and own it!

Paradigma

What was the worst fashion trend of 2012?
The whole pajama trend never really caught up with me. Some could rock it, but it was a hit or miss kind of thing... and if you missed it would look like you were too lazy to get dressed.

PhiPhi's Blog

Who is your favorite designer of all time? Of 2012?
I really am a big fan of Diane Von Furstenberg. Her style is effortless and timeless. She balances edgy, fun prints with classy cuts and styles. You can easily find a piece for every occasion from her lines.

return to top

Phi Style

What is your greatest advice for those aspiring to work in the fashion industry?
I think having tenacity and self-awareness is key to working in fashion. You have to constantly push yourself forward because as is the nature of fashion, things are constantly changing so you have to have the drive to not only keep up, but keep ahead. At the same time, you have to have a very strong sense of self and an awareness about what your own style is in order to weed through what's in and what's out.

Possessionista

Possessionista helps you find the clothes you like from the TV shows you love!

Scout Sixteen

What was the worst fashion trend of 2012?
Jeffrey Campbell's 'Lita' shoes are something I hope die out soon. They are hideous, clunky monsters that turn any beautiful girl with great style into a witchy fashion dud. Also, drop-crotch pants. No more.

return to top

She Wears Fashion

What is your greatest advice for those aspiring to work in the fashion industry?
Work hard and try to show that you have something to offer that others don't. In most of my experiences I find every other candidate was just as capable to do the job - but I was actually chosen because they liked my personality! Punctuality and a positive attitude is key!

Simply Hope

Who is your favorite designer of all time? Of 2012?
My all time favorite designer is Balmain. Oliver Rousteing has done a marvelous job these past 3 years. I adore how Balmain's looks make a woman look effortlessly cool, chic, and powerful. Every season when the models walk the runway I can't help but want to be that girl! I can't think of a show where I didn't want to own at least 10 of Balmain's pieces.

Skinny Purse

What is your greatest advice for those aspiring to work in the fashion industry?
Try to find what it is that you truly love doing. Embrace that activity and strive to become the best at it. It is better to narrow your focus than to try to do too many things at once.

Strawberry Stiletto

Who is your favorite designer of all time? Of 2012?
This is so tough! I have favorite shoe designers and handbag designers, but overall, the designer who has continued to impress me in ALL categories would definitely be Marc Jacobs!

The Budget Babe

Fashion, beauty, and style for hotties on a budget! Dishing the latest cheap-chic fashion news, designer, and celebrity looks for less, plus honest reports about the places we all love to shop.

The Budget Fashionista

What was the worst fashion trend of 2012?
Harem pants just need to go. It does a disservice to your legs and hips by making them look bigger and bulkier. The only excuse for keeping them in your closet is if you're dressing up as Jeannie for Halloween parties.

return to top

The Curvy Fashionista

What is your greatest advice for those aspiring to work in the fashion industry?
Patience. I would suggest that anything worth having doesnt come easily and you have to work at it. Building a reputation, brand, or label takes time. Stay consistent, be respectful, and hold fast to your dreams.

return to top

The Fashionista Next Door

Whos is your favorite designer of all time? Of 2012?
I'm going to stick to American sportswear because it's so practical for the everyday woman and that is what my blog is all about. With that in mind, I have to say I love all things Michael Kors. And, for 2012, I have to say I am just smitten with Kate Spade's fall collection.

return to top

The Girl With The Messy Hair

What is your greatest advice for those aspiring to work in the fashion industry?
You are your own brand. Be aware of how you act or what you say because believe it or not, the fashion industry is so small. Live in such a way, that if someone spoke badly of you no one would believe it.

The Happy Shopaholic

How would you describe your blog to readers of our site?
The Happy Shopaholic began with the mission to help every-day women satisfy their love for fashion and shopping without digging into their savings accounts. My blog is a celebration of sales, websites, and events (often NYC-centric), that make that mission possible. In between sale alerts, I write about current fashion trends and rate and review beauty products.

return to top

The Key To Chic

Who is your favorite designer of all time? Of 2012?
My favorite designer of all time is Miuccia Prada for her fresh and fearless point of view each season and her game-changing designs. For 2012, I think Mary Katranzou's innovation with prints is highly influential. Her unrivaled use of prints on directional silhouettes makes her a designer to watch.

return to top

The Morbid Fashion

What was the worst fashion trend of 2012?
I am not a fan of the '90s revival. Crop tops with leggings, acid wash, etc. I don't think anyone is really a fan of the ugly fashions from their childhood becoming popular again when they reach adulthood.

return to top

The Notebook of a Fashion Lover

Who is your favorite designer of all time? Of 2012?
I totally adore and respect Coco Chanel because she was an innovative designer and her sense of style is just the epitome of the word chic. Christopher Bailey should be my favorite designer for 2012 because I fell in love with his collection (Burberry) for Fall/Winter 2012-13.

The You and Me Collective

How would you describe your blog to readers of our site?
The You & Me Collective is a style blog that focuses on finding ethically made fashion and decor that doesn't sacrifice great design for the cause. While the term "ethically made" can mean any number of things, The You & Me Collective's main focus is fair labor practices. The great thing about companies who care about one aspect of fair trade is that they typically care about all aspects, which means these companies also often use sustainable materials, aid in development of communities, and create quality products that last.

Thirsty Thought by Kryz Uy

Work your hardest, stick to your morals, and do it only if you love it.

Tiny Twisst

Who is your favorite designer of all time? Of 2012?
My favourite designer of all time is Alexander McQueen - I have a huge obsession with his skull-themed masterpieces and I love the rock-vibe that transcends from his work. My favorite designer of 2012 has to be Phoebe English, I saw her collection at London Fashion Week's Fashion Scout and everything was perfect - from the styling to the music used, it gave her collection an impressive vibe, one that has stayed with me.

Trashness

How would you describe your blog to readers of our site?
Trashness is your daily dose of men's style inspiration, selected to show only the best photos. Visiting Trashness inspires you to be a more fashionable young man. No boring articles, simply the best style photos of ordinary but very well dressed men.

Trend Hungry

What is your greatest advice for those aspiring to work in the fashion industry?
Don't turn down working for free in the beginning. It's how you make contacts, how you learn the biz, and how you figure out what you love and what's not for you. Start your journey by asking inspiring people out for coffee. This method helped me start blogging, getting on the radio, TV, and so much more.

return to top

Two Sevenths

What was the worst fashion trend of 2012?
Harem pants. The return of fanny packs. That texan-looking, cowboy inspired metal tip on collar points. Blown-up polka dots. Now I have to share the best trends of 2012: Sport Luxe with athletic caps, varsity style jackets and designer sneakers. The return to the classic pump, but paired with casual denim and chunky knit sweater. I am thrilled that oversized pieces are so on trend right now - everybody looks good in a chunky knit sweater!
