GlamUK Fashion Bloggers


The perception of blogging has changed so much in the past 24 months. So in recognition of all the hardworking bloggers and blog networks in the blog-o-sphere we know !  Along with all these fabulous fashion blogs representing the UK Style Canteen made the cut..! Here's a copy of the GlamUK article ..

Leading online women's site Glam Media has put together a list of the top fashion blogs in the world.
Seventeen UK fashion blogs make the list, along with nine from the United States, 14 French fashion blogs and one Spanish blog.

The criteria used to decide influence included unique users, who the blogger is, their audience and the quality of their blog.

Charlotte Smith, Glam Media recruitment and community manager and seasoned blogger, said she looked at "what they are writing about, what they are photographing or video blogging".

"The look and style of the blog, right now the trend in fashion blogs is clean. We suggest clean designs, uncluttered sites, backed by blogger credibility and each blogger's unique point of view."

She said Glam compiled the list "because there are many companies out there who claim to understand online media and bloggers" and PRs often asked how to identify key fashion bloggers.

"For PRs if you work with us and invite our bloggers, in return you will get quality coverage without the drama."

Topping the UK list is 
www.bryanboy.com, a blog by Filipino-born Bryan Grey-Yambao which has been described as a "phenom in the fashion blogosphere". Bryanboy fans often send in photos of themselves in his signature pose - standing with hips thrust to one side and a handbag in an outstretched arm.

www.facehunter.blogspot.com, a blog by Yvan Rodic which showcases street style fashion across the globe. Fashion writer and stylist Marian Kihogo's blog www.mariankihogo.com takes third spot, while www.mademoisellerobot.com, a fashion and lifestyle blog with a vintage twist takes the fourth spot.
