Late last year Grazia Daily sat down and wrote this letter to Santa...
"Dear Father Christmas, please can we take over the Apple store to host a series of video podcasts, workshops and masterclasses on Fashion Blogging? And please can we get the biggest names in the blogosphere involved ? Please, please, please fix it for us! We've only been a little bit naughty this year, and we promise to be on our best behaviour for 2012.
Lots of love,
Grazia Daily xx P.S. pleasecanwealsohavethisbagthankyou"
So, imagine our surprise to find ourselves starting 2012 as the main attraction at the Apple store... hosting a series of video podcasts, workshops and masterclasses on fashion blogging (yes!), featuring top tips from the ten biggest names in the fashion blogosphere... Susie Lau of Susie Bubble, Navaz Batliwalla of Disney Roller Girl, Emily Johnston of Fashion Foie Gras, Kristin Knox of The Clothes Whisperer, Poppy Dinsey of What I Wore Today, Ella Gregory of Coco's Tea Party, Queen Marie of Kingdom of Style, Michele Obi of My Fashion Life, Isabelle O Carroll of IsabelleOC, Gemma Cartwright of Catwalk Queen and our very own Fashion Reporter, Hannah Almassi of Style Hunter.
We assembled this elite super-group of A-list bloggers and then interrogated them for all their top tips, lightbulb moments and must-know methods they've used to become some of the biggest new names in fashion.
If you're already blogging, or if you're thinking that 2012 is the year for your to start your first fashion blog, then this masterclass is an unmissable opportunity.
The masterclasses are FREE but with limited availability, and all based in London at Apple's flagship store in Covent Garden (it's Apple's biggest store in Europe, dontchaknow..), every Thursday in January, with the first masterclass starting tonight at 6pm at Apple's store in Covent Garden. See below for booking details.
And once you've got all that insider knowledge, why not take it to the next level by letting Apple's experts help you get all the best tech skills for your blog with their free Fashion Blogging workshops (details below).
** NB readers outside London, we hear you! Watch this space for some very exciting news coming soon on how YOU can join in the Apple/Grazia Fashion Blogging Masterclasses from the comfort of your own laptop.**
Fashion Blog Masterclass with Angela Buttolph
Blogging is becoming increasingly significant in the fashion world, helping fashionistas stay up to date with the latest trends.
The blog has become the communication tool of choice for tastemakers and trend setters worldwide. With so many great apps available it's never been easier to reach your audience, whether from the local coffee shop or at the end of the catwalk. Bring your own iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch and Apple will show you how you can always stay ahead of the crowd, with both simplicity and style.
