Of course, these 10 writers are just some of the top talents online and in print right now; my other favorites include genuine legends and iconoclasts, and my career heroes, like Hywel Davies, Hilary Alexander, Vanessa Friedman and Tim Blanks.

I feel genuinely excited about the future of fashion journalism and my place in it. Writers like these can help push forward not just genuinely interesting, entertaining and opinionated journalism in an industry too often dismissed as frivolous, but also to highlight issues that really matter, like sustainability an diversity.

Long live long-form fashion writing, despite the age of fake news, clickbait, and the historically short attention span!
