The Top 10 Fashion Blogger Achievements of 2015



I'm still adjusting to the fact that it's the fifth day of 2016. So in a customary act of procrastination, I'm looking back at last year one more time for inspiration as we head into the new year. It was an impressive 365 days for bloggers, who achieved major successes with big-name collaborations,  sponsorships and their own clothing lines. Here are the top 10 fashion blogger achievements of 2015. What will you accomplish this year?

  1. Are You Am I?

    Rumi Neely of Fashion Toast technically launched Are You Am I (R.U.M.I., get it?) in 2014, but the self-funded line of slinky slip dresses, lace-up leather shorts and more really gained steam in 2015.

  2. Selling Out

    Cupcakes and Cashmere‘s Emily Shuman launches her own line of clothing and it quickly sells out at Nordstrom and Shopbop (it's restocked at Shopbop).

  3. Getting Down to Business

    The Harvard Business Review releases a case study about the stunning success of Chiara Ferragni, a.k.a. The Blond Salad. Ferragni called it her proudest blogging moment yet.

  4. Couch Hustling

    Danielle Bernstein of We Wore What says she can make up to $15,000 by simply sitting on her couch (and Instagramming a photo of it, of course).

  5. A-Plus

    Target launches a trendy plus-sized line and uses fashion bloggers to model it.

  6. Monkeying Around

    Susie Bubble launches her second collaboration with Monki.

  7. Fresh Collabs

    Gabi Fresh launches a collaboration with ASOS that are swoon-worthy for any size.

  8. Completely Booked

    After a decade of blogging, Garance Dore publishes her first book and tours the U.S. and Europe on a book tour.
