If you’re not lucky enough to be one of the attendees at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, there’s still a ton of ways you can keep up on the style, gossip, and trends. With your iPhone in the palm of your hand, you can follow brands, editors, and bloggers. Here’s a few of my picks. Be sure to follow KC You There, we’ll be bringing you a behind the scenes look at Diesel Black Gold!
@MBFashionWeek The official Twitter handle from the producers of MBFW is a must follow. One perk of following is that they often have contests (see their street style contest here, where you can enter to win tickets and meet & greet to the RUFFIAN show).
@cutblog A year round staple, the Cut blog of New York Magazine has tons of updates throughout Fashion Week. Follow for a perfect mix of fashion, news, & snark.
@dkny Closing in on 400,000 followers, DKNY PR Girl is another must follow on our list (see also, Tumblr). Always clever and never mean, you can follow her insider tweets day & night.
Be sure to search #NYFW #MBFW & #shitfashiongirlssay to stay on top of the latest news from Fashion Week!
Part blog, part Twitter, part Instagram, it’s no wonder Tumblr is one of fashions favorite blogging platforms.
DKNY PR Girl I couldn’t help but add DKNY PR Girl to this list twice… notorious on twitter, her recent step into Tumblr has been a great addition to the social media scene. Hilarious show requests, previews from DKNY & Donna Karan, and editorial shots make this blog a fun read. Follow DKNY PR Girl on Tumblr for a fresh take on NYFW.
Women’s Wear Daily (WWD) Fashion news wouldn’t be complete without Women’s Wear Daily. The daily media record for the industry has become more accessible through their Tumblr blog. Follow WWD for informative news on designers and their collections.
CFDA The Council for Fashion Designers of America is a naturally creative group, no surprise their blog is filled with images from over 400 members. Follow CFDA for inspired runway shots, insider quotes, and videos.
