Wu was responsible for 16% of interactions, thanks in part to his pairing with Nordstrom to live-stream his runway show and host a “live” trunk show where customers could pre-order from his fall collection.

Marc Jacobs comes in at a respectable second place with 14% of interactions, followed by Diane von Furstenberg and Michael Kors, both at 12%.

Fashion magazines had the biggest influence in driving the social media conversation, with a 27% stake, followed by bloggers at 25%, “fashion influencers” — whatever the hell that means — at 19%, online publications at 18% and the lowly editor at 11%. [WWD]

I was center square from 1969 to 1978, during which I perfected the art of the zing as well as a crippling cocaine addiction. Bea Arthur was responsible for both. @LesFabian lester dot brathwaite at gmail
