WSJ’s New Fashion Blog: Heard on the Runway

I really like the new Wall Street Journal’s blog, Heard on the Runway.  It’s updated repeatedly throughout the day and links to free WSJ articles for more indepth coverage. 

It’s not just a photo blog of runway collections, it covers a wide scope of news of the fashion industry. 

The writers offer background information as well as photos. This is the stuff I like to know about.

I’m not going to give away any of the fascinating details but offer this list to raise your curiosity:

  • Agents for designers: DMA, or the Designers Management Agency
  • New marketing directions among men’s fashion designers
  • The changing shape of competition for pay among models
  • Diane von Furstenburg’s efforts as director of CFDA to guide the industry toward more healthy weight models
  • Bono and wife, Ali Hewson’s answer to the skinny model question
  • The revival of the Vionnet label (Yay!!!)

I hope this blog just keeps on grinding out the news.  I’ll definitely be reading!

About Mary Beth

I am fascinated by changing patterns and colored threads. I sew garments and am teaching myself to machine knit. Since selling the building that housed my workrooms, The Stitchery, I'm searching for a place to set up the knitting machines again. There must be room here somewhere!

  2. Wow, and I though Kathy Horyn’s blog in the NYT was as goo as it gets! Please tell me Teri Agins is doing the writing. She’s great.

  3. Ahem, that would be “good” not “goo” in my previous comment.
