It’s hard for a hardened fashionite to admit love to a single publication, being that there are sooo many options, and no mere mortal has the time, or the bank account, to purchase and privy all the amazing editorials produced each month in lesser known titles like Acne Paper or Purple Mag, which is why it’s refreshing for me to be able to admit that Harper’s is my hands down, favorite big box, kind of the equivalent of Walmart to Dazed & Confused‘s mom & pop, fashion glossy.
Fashion blogger Garance Doré is famous for her fashion illustrations and relationship with Scott Schuman of The Sartorialist, but now her artwork will be available to purchase. The French fashion blogger is responding to fan requests and is printing posters of her fashion illustrations to sell on her website.
CrOp by David Peck is a socially conscious, contemporary womenswear brand that is produced and developed in Houston. Designer David Peck sat down with FashionIndie and answered 5 of our most pressing questions about his brand, summer style and what inspires him.
Scott Schuman, the diminutive dictator behind The Sartorialist, has a reputation for being….sort of a…dick. And in the June issue of GQ, he takes a moment from bullying Tavi Gevinson to rain a few F-bombs all over the magazine industry, Dolce & Gabbana and the president of Saks Fifth Ave.
Is it really that time again for the biggest prize in American fashion? Yup! The nominees and honorees have been announced for the 2012 CFDA Awards and it’s a full house.

Full list of nominees after the jump!
‘Twas one hell of a year for fashion, 2011. Alexander McQueen triumphed this year thanks to a pair of well-documented dresses and a bona fide cultural phenomenon at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Christian Dior tried to rebound from a potential PR nightmare, to varying degrees of success. Diffusion lines easily out-shined their designer homes. An editrix reinvented herself amidst a sea of rumors without losing a beat. And underaged fashionistas grew up in front of our very eyes. Here are our picks for the 25 most memorable and stylish moments of 2011.
INDIE NEWSROOM: Carine Starting Her Own Magazine!…SJP Hags It Up for S Moda…Scott Schuman is Kind of a Dick
- Carine Roitfeld, by the Grace of Coddington, is coming back to the magazine world: ”I would love to do four times a year. Initially, I wanted it on the Internet, but it’s a lot of investment, a lot of time, I do not know if it suits me. I know that now you have to work with the Internet, and the photos are of very good quality on the iPad, but things quickly go out of style on the Internet. We’ll start with print. A September issue next Fall, in English.” [Fashionologie]
Peter Som peered through the eye of a kaleidoscope for his colorful and vibrant spring 2012 collection. Color was the key with a parade of feminine and floral blouses, pants and dresses with the occasional khaki trench dress and twill coat thrown in for good, ladylike measure.
In a fantastical dream last night, I was skipping through hot fields packed with wildly garbed people and hula hoops. Ahead of me, The Black Keys were electrifying “Everlasting Light” on a massive stage, and behind me there was a great deal of foofaraw; including a giant glowing structure built of egg cartons and, oddly enough, each of my head scarves. I was floating, lighter than air, and every time I looked down at my feet, I was wearing a different pair of Dr. Martens. Metallic high tops! Purple polka dot creepers! Impressionist floral combat boots! And each time the Docs made a switch, The Sartorialist, Scott Schumann, snapped a picture of me. Meanwhile Garance Doré was across the field with 3 trailer trucks and a bevy of models, lighting, and incidentally, glow sticks, whilst she directed a photo shoot. When I turned back, The Black Keys had stopped, and the president of Dr. Martens takes the mic to welcome us all to Coachella 2012.
There can only be one explanation for such a dream….
Online super retailer Net-a-Porter asked a panel of industry experts, including Paper Magazine‘s Mickey Boardman, gal about town and Harper’s Bazaar Editor-at-Large Derek Blasberg and Bloglovin’ founder Mattias Swenson to select their top ten favorite blogs. If FashionIndie hadn’t done enough coke at 54 to powder the nose of every actress in Hollywood ten times over thus rendering all emotions dead below the larynx, our feelings would be super hurt right now. Check out the list below, if you care to (you shouldn’t).

- The new television Wonder Woman has nothing on Lynda Carter, not to mention that her costume looks like a cheap Jeremy Scott cast-off. [Socialite Life]
2011 is almost upon us and we all know what that means: time to set lofty goals we are neither prepared nor willing to keep! This time around, however, I’ve decided to aim a little lower. Instead of promising myself that I’ll work out more, eat less or not openly hate Taylor Swift/Momsen, I’m resolving to refine my wardrobe.
