The best of the best, as chosen by our editors.
It’s been a long 12 months, and before we kick 2018 to the curb, we’re looking back at all of the most memorable, game-changing fashion and beauty things that went down. Follow along with us as we look back at the year in review.
Over the course of the year, the small (but mighty!) Fashionista team churns out a hell of a lot of #content — ranging from analytical deep-dives on industry trends to thoughtful essays and LOL-worthy news posts to critical runway show reviews. No two days are ever the same, and we report, write, produce and edit all while prepared to drop everything for the kind of breaking-news moments that get our blood pumping. We travel the globe for marathon fashion weeks, logging thousands of steps in places like Milan, Paris, Sydney, Copenhagen and Tbilisi, and we stay up until the wee hours of the morning covering primetime awards shows. And, quite honestly, we wouldn’t have it any other way, because we love our site, we love this industry and we love you, our readers, whose feedback makes us want to do more and be better year after year.
Now, with the longest-ever calendar year that was 2018 (finally) coming to a close, we’re hitting pause on our breakneck pace to appreciate the pieces that really made an impression on you, as well as on us. Our writers and editors put our heads together to compile those stories that made us think, made us laugh and even, in a few select cases, made us cry. Some of these pieces were passion products that started constructive conversations — within fashion and beyond — while others, we think, simply embody the approachable, candid spirit that makes Fashionista what it is and what it always has been.
