The internet and other technologies have been transforming the way businesses and people communicate and this digital publication is intended to arouse curiosity and stimulate discussion about fashion and the myriad ways it is presented around the world. We hope it raises questions, such as, what role does the internet play in communicating a city’s fashion scene internationally?

The Global Fashion Bloggers digital publication launches on October 13th at the Global Fashion Capitals symposium at the Fashion Institute of Technology, as well as via The Museum at FIT’s social media channels using the campaign hashtag #GlobalFashBlogs.

Global Fashion Bloggers was organized by Taina Laaksonen, an awardee of the Mobius Fellowship Program, in collaboration with staff at The Museum at FIT. Taina Laaksonen is a Finnish producer and fashion educator, active in several fields of digital culture. She has worked for large cultural institutions, including both design universities in Helsinki and at the same time in micro-projects around Europe. Taina Laaksonen has degrees in design, digital culture, and entrepreneurship. The publication is a collaboration within the disciplines of fashion, visual culture, and digital media.

This project would not have been possible without the generosity of The Finnish Cultural Institute in New York
