So a few weeks ago I filled out this online survey on The Business of Fashion Blog (a really great blog by Imran Amed that has great posts about, well, the intersection of fashion and business) and yesterday the results were posted. It's a basic overview of who reads the sight and what they're looking for from it. Here's a bit of it:
You represent all facets of the fashion industry
About a third of you come from the business side of the industry: CEOs, managing directors, senior executives, brand managers, investors and even some business and economics students. Another third come from the creative side: designers, stylists, fashion students, and PRs. The remainder is a mixture of academics, journalists, media personalities, entrepreneurs, and my favourite, a "waitress extraordinaire while I am working on my own fashion business."
Guess who the "waitress extraordinaire" is? Yours truly! I just think that it's kind of ironic that my first quote on a fashion related website is in reference to how I'm a waitress. Oh well, you gotta start out somewhere.
Please take a visit to the sight. It has lots of useful and interesting information. I highly recommend it. It's one of the few sites I try to get to every day.
