Fashion Bloggers On Style Was Short, Sharp And Sweet

Screen shot 2014-10-15 at 10.41.10 PM

Fashion Bloggers, which premiered tonight, is the first Australian reality TV show made for the Style Network and it is actually a very watchable TV show.

The show which follows five fashion bloggers in what they do in their daily lives was entertaining as they kept it short, sharp and sweet.

By short, I mean a nice 30 minute episode. Sharp was no slow build up just straight into New York fashion week. Any show with the NYC scenery in it gives it a bit more edge and the sweet was the cast. There was no housewives faux fighting everyone looked liked they got on.

Also in the world of fashion which can be slightly pretentious and narcissistic the bloggers were quite nice and as with all good reality TV characters I wanted to get to know them more.

Fashion blogging is not a world I know much about, but in short they are bloggers who write and take a lot of photos of fashion and of themselves wear fashion. Also huge followers on instagram, Facebook and Twitter are critical for their success.

The first episode focussed mainly on Sara Donaldson from Harper and Harley, Margaret Zhang of Shine By Three (beautiful looking blog) and Zanita Whittington of Zanita who were attending New York Fashion Week. But also there is Kate Waterhouse of Katewaterhouse.com who we saw doing a Waterhouse family Vogue shoot, and Amanda Shadforth of Oracle Fox.

Australian production companies have not done these type genre of reality show very well in the past, think Park Street… But Fashion Bloggers is interesting and entertaining and takes you into a lifestyle that most people never get to see and it is very easy on the eye.

Fashion Blogger on Style Channel on Wednesday nights at 8.30pm. Repeats throughout the week.

I saw this when looking through the channels but had no idea what it was.. thought it was another US show.. might have to check it out, especially while Fashion Police is on hiatus.

I didn’t have very high hopes for this show but I really enjoyed it.

Nicely cut work. Looks like the team have a mighty fine editor on board!

My big takeaway from this show was I still don’t understand how the bloggers are making any money! I know that fashion is a huge industry, but I couldn’t work out which revenue stream the bloggers are tapping into.

Interesting that you say it looks like they all get on. Some of the girls are good actors, because one in particular is hated by all the others.

To the above comment, who’s the one most hated? I have an inkling it may be Waterhouse….

Watched the first episode… nothing but a bunch of materialistic cunts who’ll have nothing to show for when their time is over (or when they age a little more and no longer considered trendy). Amen.
