Blog Stars

Introducing the winners of the inaugural St. Louis Fashion Blog Awards.

 

There’s no doubt that both nationally and globally, bloggers are changing the way we see, buy, follow and create in the world of fashion. St. Louis is no exception. With a blossoming group of nearly 40 style bloggers plying their trade in the area, the St. Louis Fashion Blog Awards were created to call attention to those who are assisting in the city’s fashion resurgence.

Held at Three Sixty’s beautiful rooftop bar during the Saint Louis Fashion Week Kick-off Party on Sept. 19, the inaugural awards ceremony recognized 20 local bloggers in 17 categories, from best fashion blog and personal style to best photography and use of social media. Two winners were announced in each category: an official winner voted upon by a judging panel of local fashion industry professionals, and a people’s choice winner selected by readers through online voting. We caught up with a few of the winners to spotlight their contributions to the local fashion blogging scene.
