Bloggers: "The Future of Fashion?"

When most people think about the major power players in the fashion industry, usually editors, models, and big-name designers come to mind. However, times are changing, and bloggers are quickly rising to the top of the fashion ladder. Bloggers such as Scott Schuman (The Sartorialist) and Garance Doré (Garance Doré) are two of the most popular style bloggers and are quickly becoming accepted into the high-fashion set. In this month's issue of Teen Vogue, the magazine profiles several up-and-coming young bloggers whom they herald as "the future of fashion." From 16 year-old Texan Jane Alridge (Sea of Shoes) to 19 year-old Filipino Bryan (Bryan Boy), this list presents the new stars of fashion. With all this publicity and their rising influence, do you think that bloggers will eventually replace magazine editors and other traditional fashion jobs?
