    Top 10 Best Fashion Writers

    In celebration of genuinely intelligent journalism, I've been swotting up on some longform pieces by some talented writers. Here are some brilliant articles to explore from each of my top 10 favourite fashion writers!

    Nadine Farag

    Sue-Wen Quek

    Iris Apfel’s Sculptural Headpieces

    Osman Ahmed

    From Versace to Helmut Lang, the Rise of Re-Issues

    Ailidh Maclean

    Fashion’s New Order

    Sass Brown

    Claire Stuart

    Ho but make it fashion: Fashion’s love affair with fetish

    Sophie Benson

    Georgia Illingworth

    Christina Moon

    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!
