Follow These 9 Fashion News Sites During Fashion Week (& Beyond)

From time to time, an industry or subject inspires us to create a best-of list. In case you’ve missed some of these, you can find them here. These are fashion news sites that produce out-of-this-world coverage in a crowded arena. If you think your site should be considered, give us a holler and tell us why.

9 Fashion News Sites - mediablog.prnewswire.com

As designer Miuccia Prada once said, “What you wear is how you present yourself to the world, especially today, when human contacts are so quick. Fashion is instant language.”

Whether someone has an active interest in fashion or not, it’s a constant part of life and choosing an outfit each day is an act of self-expression. Yes, even if it’s deciding which sweatpants to wear during work.

Fashion also is a big industry. Really big. According to FashionUnited, the global fashion industry is valued at $3 trillion. That’s 2% of the world’s gross domestic product.

So with fashion weeks beginning to ramp up in the coming weeks and an industry that’s constantly changing and adapting to consumer trends, we want to recognize these nine sites that make sure readers are on top of the latest fashion news.

1. Vogue

This list wouldn’t be complete without the publication that many consider the fashion bible. American Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour has said, “’Vogue’ is the best of everything that fashion can offer, and I think we point the way. We are, you know, a glamorous girlfriend.”

Stories cover fashion trends, profiles on style icons and trendsetters, as well as regular Best Dressed lists. News from fashion weeks around the world keeps readers informed on the latest collections.

Vogue also hosts the annual Met Gala, which is basically the fashion equivalent of the Oscars, so make sure to look out for this event coverage in May of each year. The 2021 Gala, however, was postponed to September of this year due to the pandemic. This year’s theme will celebrate American fashion.

3. WWD

Women’s Wear Daily (WWD) is a weekly magazine that’s been around since 1910. WWD covers in-depth fashion week reviews and the latest trends in women’s and men’s fashion, accessories, and beauty.

In an interview with Vanity Fair in 1986, WWD’s outspoken chairman, John B. Fairchild, said, “Sure we have gossip; we also have some very, very solid business stories. We are a creation of this business, which is fast, mean, tough, sometimes artistic, sometimes fun, sometimes horrible.”

The site also has a wonderfully useful Fashion Dictionary – perfect if you need to brush up on industry terminology.

5. Who What Wear

Former Elle editors Katherine Power and Hillary Kerr started Who What Wear (WWW) in 2006 as a daily celebrity style e-newsletter. The goal, according to the site, is to “reimagine how women consume content and shop for products online.”

WWW also has an affordable, size-inclusive, and trend-forward line of clothing and accessories.

New York-based GQ, founded in 1957, is the premier men’s magazine for style and culture news.

Condé Nast owns GQ Style and describes it like this: “As masculinity evolves and men’s fashion has moved to the center of the global pop-culture conversation, GQ’s authority has never been broader or stronger.”

With dedicated sections for just about every type of clothing, as well as regular posts for the best-dressed men of the week and interviews with trendsetters, GQ Style is a great place to get your fix for men’s fashion news.
