Shift in Power: the Blogger and Vlogger Influence on the World of Fashion
Zoella, Sprinkle of Glitter, Inthefrow, That Pommie Girl; these are all names that are currently having an impact on the world of fashion, and with hundreds of thousands (sometimes millions) of adoring fans it’s no wonder PR companies and brands have switched on to promoting their products through them. However, because of this, there has been a real shift in power when it comes to bloggers and vloggers and they are now celebrities in their own right with real influence over what people buy. Zoella (Zoe Sugg) is the strongest example of this. With 3.77m followers on Twitter, 2,404,527 likes on Facebook and a subscription list consisting of 9,172,815 viewers on YouTube at the time of writing, she has a lot of credibility with a lot of people. This shift in power, from the usual advertising platforms to those talking into a camera lens, is a trend dominating the fashion industry currently. There are a lot of hoops to jump through now when it comes to bloggers and advertising.
