Style.com is featuring summer shopping tips by 5 of the industry's so-called experts (a mix of stylists, editors and PR gurus). I think it is definitely worth checking out. It is fun to see different thoughts and opinions from different girls in the industry. For example, Bonnie Morrison of the famed KCD press agency despises rubber flip flops, while Kate Young, stylist to the stars, thinks they are fab.
The videos serve as a great interactive element. I think it is so much better than a bunch of words and images. The videos actually bring the whole story to life. It is an entertaining and interesting feature and I hope to see more of these industry girls spieling on the industry. There are so many of these so-called expert girls in NY that style.com could do this type of feature daily for a year.
It's great to see all the people behind the seams, instead of just the models or designers, or even the overnight celebrities. It is so much nicer to see the real people, hear their thoughts and learn from the ones who are actually running the industry. I think that these people should be flocking the covers of our fashion magazines.
My favorite reviews were Bonnie Morrison and Kate Young. Check out the entire Shopping Guide video series on style.com.
