30 fashion Twitter feeds you shouldn’t be without

Twitter’s influence on the fashion industry is set to last long after the buzz around the international fashion weeks has died down.

Back in 2004 when I was slaving away in Milan for a high-end Italian fashion boutique I would have killed for hourly updates on breaking industry news and trends.

Thankfully my days as a fashion-obsessive are long gone but as Consuming PR blogged last month, Twitter, a micro-blogging tool, speeds up the emergence of fashion trends.

No self-respecting fashionista is going to wait until next season’s collections to see what’s what.


So I’ve collated a list of the 30 twitter feeds that are essential reading. It’s a mixture of bloggers, magazines, brands and stylists  rated for their original content, speed and regular updates. Give me a shout if I’ve missed any.
