Here’s some interesting reading for anyone interested in the influence or information needs of fashion bloggers. The first of these was a collaborative effort by one of our own at the FIT Library, Nicole LaMoreaux.
- Detterbeck, Kimberly, Nicole LaMoreaux, and Marie Sciangula. Style and Substance: The Information Seeking Behavior of Fashion Bloggers. Metropolitan Library Council of New York, New York, NY. 2012.
- Marwick, Alice. “Conspicuous and Authentic: Fashion Blogs, Style, and Consumption.” International Communication Association Conference. Boston, MA, 2011.
