Who really pulls the strings in the fashion business? Power is not always going hand in hand with popularity, that’s what New York Times tell’s us in the article Fashion’s New Order. They try to objectively list the most powerful people in the fashion industry.
Next to Designer Miuccia Prada and Hairstylist Guido Paulau, Rapper ASAP Rocky also made it in the “Power-List” of New York Times
FOR much of the 20th century, the seating chart of a runway show gave a fairly accurate reading of power in the fashion industry. The press on one side, retailers on the other; editors and buyers prioritized neatly from front row to last…the entire article is available at New York Times.
Quiz-question: which fashion-blogger is unable to write a full sentence, is licking his own asshole everyday and still earns more money than you, who has an abhorred office-job (about 15.000,- Dollar per month)?
No, it is not Sami Slimani – he owns more. And it is not Jessica Weiß - she knows how to write (and does not lick her own ass, as far as we know).
It is Bodhi. And different from Sami Slimani, Bodi is a dog.
The dog earns about 15.000,- Dollar per month with fashion-blogging. And all of that, just because his owner had the world-greatest-ideam to put men’s clothes on the dog – and than had the brilliant idea, to make a blog out of it.
Fashion brands as AMERICAN APPAREL, GANT and ASOS are paying hundreds of dollars, so that Bodhi is wearing their clothes. Well, if nobody else does it (besides maybe Sami - here for example).
We are definitely picking up role-models, looking at the top-earners Bodhi and Sami and are starting to smell our own assholes again. Maybe then we are finally going to have the style and the money.
