When I recently heard about the LOOK Blogger Competition, I instantly brightened up. Nothing makes me feel more worthy and accepted as part of the fashion industry like brilliant magazines opening up chances for us blogging types. We all know that Fashion Editors, Stylists and Writers are all well respected members of the UK Fashion Media, and 100% deserve their front row seats at the fashion shows that embrace London and beyond.
So that’s why it is really refreshing when fashion publications launch competitions giving the blogging community a taste of the fashionista life! We might love shimmying down to brand press events, being invited to produce a guest blog or admiring pretty pieces gifted to us by generous labels, but being invited to attend a magazine’s fashion show and blog from the front row is something every blogger dreams of!
As well as hogging an A class catwalk view seat, admiring all the hottest high street trends from Westfield Stratford City, LOOK are also giving the winner the chance to spend a night in a hotel, enjoy 3 course meals and cocktails, a Toni & Guy cut and blow dry, cinema and bowling vouchers, a £200 Westfield Stratford City shopping voucher and £100 towards travel expenses! What a lovely package!
So this leads me to the entering part, where I have to convince you that I should be chosen for this opportunity. Well basically, I just wanted to go down the route where I would be honoured to attend as part of the blogging industry. To sit on the front row as a ‘blogger’ is a huge achievement in itself, and I’m sure all you blogger types reading this can’t agree more! We’ve faced critisism over the years and took more than a heavy bashing over claims we don’t deserve to be classed as respected fashion insiders. But in this day and age, 2011 proves it all wrong, with fashion bloggers being taken to style stardom and gaining full respect from those in the fashion media. To sit on the front row at the LOOK show would be a cherished moment, and not just for me, but for all those hard working bloggers out there who strive to see these kind of happenings.
As my blog readers will know, I’m also a high street shopper through and through, therefore would be in my absolute element admiring the new collections from all my retail favorites. I’d have my pen and paper ready, scribbling away at my wish list! All opinions would be fresh from a style bloggers eyes, in my own words and from my own opinions – isn’t that what people are loving these days?
Wish me luck, it’s such a fabulous opportunity for all bloggers out there! This would make my year, and I’d promise to provide excellent coverage for you all and first hand reports! Good luck to everyone else entering, I reckon the LOOK team are going to be snowed under with entries!
