Thanks to its intrinsically visual nature, the fashion industry has garnered a strong online presence, selectively baring all through the guise of social media. Fashion insiders make the ins and outs of the industry available to any seeing eye with an Internet connection. This also means that virtually anyone can create a blog, Tumblr, or website with what seems to be never-ending pretty pictures of designer labels, glossy editorial spreads or dressed to the nines models. This is all fine and dandy for a 5-minute visual fashion breakdown turned 30-minute addictive page clicking (if you are not familiar with fashion tumblrs, you’ll see what I mean in just a second), but what about the source(s) of these pretty pictures re-blogged and “liked” to overkill?
