Longtime fashion bloggers know the industry, and some of them have been able to use their platform and experience to create their very own brands. Keep an eye out for these bloggers turned designers!
1. Rumi Neely, Fashion Toast
Rumi Neely, a fashion blogging veteran, launched her fashion line Are You Am I in 2014 after she was unable to find those perfect pieces we’ve all searched for: the draped white tee, the triangle bra that actually fits, and so on. Her line of sexy basics has expanded to include a full clothing line, jewelry, and accessories. Are You Am I continues to offer up quality, seductive pieces that encompass Neely’s own personal style.
2. Elin Kling, The Wall
After founding the successful fashion blog The Wall, Elin expanded her career by creating Totême with her husband in 2014. A collection of everyday quality basics and mix-and-match pieces, Totême has been successfully growing within the fashion world. It’s been featured in prominent magazines like Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and Elle and worn by some of Hollywood’s most glamorous women!
3. Chiara Ferragni, The Blonde Salad
Chiara has appeared on numerous red carpets and televisions shows and is one of the most recognizable international fashion bloggers. She was recently named one of Forbes’s ’30 Under 30′ in Art & Style, and she’s even become a study subject at Harvard Business School! Her Chiara Ferragni Collection is a fashion destination for flirty, playful shoes and accessories.
4. Danielle Bernstein, We Wore What
Danielle has been running her blog We Wore What for seven years, and it’s safe to say the move to expand her brand worked hugely in her favor. 2016 was a big year for Danielle: she launched her overall line Second Skin Overalls and her shoe line The Archive with Modern Vice founder Jordan Adoni. Danielle is just one of many bloggers with a long promising career in fashion!
5. Jess Hannah, J Hannah Journal
Jess founded J. Hannah Jewelry, a collection of pieces that are intended to be lived in and never taken off. Think delicate, timeless, minimal rings and necklaces that go with your entire wardrobe and lifestyle. Hannah is inspired by vintage pieces—like those handed down to her by her grandmother—and well-crafted jewelry that is meant to last a lifetime.
