The world of Fashion seems to be fully embracing the blogosphere and the benefits it can bring. Free, quirky advertising coupled with fresh, unadulterated opinions in a growing medium. I mentioned Sketchbook’s Blogger Edition last week, so I was thrilled to see Glossy Magazine takes a similar path. It mixes illustration, photography, fashion and fully champions the potential of the blogger. Its current issue features articles on The Sartorialist, Garance Doré, Sea of Shoes‘ Jane and Igor+André‘s Danny Roberts and also offers two covers, one illustrated, one photographed. The element of the magazine that holds the most appeal for me is the fusion of illustration and photography. Quirky little doodles surround the beauty of Alexa Chung and Chanel Iman, making it the literary equivalent to a sweetie shop. Fledgling magazines with a definitive sense of direction will gain my support, ones that embrace the blogosphere will always keep me fully engaged.
