where does it come from?

Secret Helpers, an article I just came across in the Wall Street Journal, by Katherine Rosman, is truly remarkable. On the heels of New York Fashion Week, this article talks about how designers have a new muse....the blogger! From Rodarte to Marc Jacobs, bloggers are closing the gap between the average mainstream & the world of people that have original & unique style. Rodarte's new line is heavily inspired from a thirteen year old girl named Tavi Gevinson from a Chicago suburb. Kate & Laura Mulleavy, the designers from Rodarte, mention that there muse makes them see & think about things differently.

How great is it that designers are giving credit to thier sources of creative motivation? I find it fascinating that the semi underground world of bloggers have joined the circle to spark concepts for designers with actresses, artists, & musicians, & are getting a nod for doing so. Check out the article & let me know what you think. - Fashion's Secret Helpers*
