The 4 bloggers you need to know to keep you up to date and ahead of the trends.
If you are unfamiliar with the works of Tommy Ton then listen up. His pictures are the Alexander McQueen shows of photography; they’re works of art. He’s often found quietly scanning the scene of every major fashion week capturing the street styles they evoke. What sets him apart from other photographers is his focus on details rather than the person themselves. He’s a regular contributor to style.com and GQ as well as a variety of top fashion magazine. Oh, and did I mention he also attended George Brown? Take a look through his lens at www.jakandjil.com.

If I were to ask you who Leandra Medine was would you know? Not many do, however, most are familiar with her blogger name, The Man Repeller. For those of you still wondering who and what a Man Repeller is, Leandra puts is as “outfitting oneself in a sartorially offensive mode that may result in repelling members of the opposite sex. Such garments include but are not limited to harem pants, boyfriend jeans, overalls, shoulder pads, full length jumpsuits, jewelry that resembles violent weaponry and clogs.” Add the latest luxury heels and an arm full of Dannijo bracelets to the above description to complete most of her posted outfits.
When not repelling men through posts of selfies, she has her readers in stitches with her quick wit and unrivaled ability to make fun of herself. She also prides herself on asking the hard hitting questions such as “How do people in fashion keep their coats on their shoulders?” Just like on the bathroom wall, for a good time visit ww.manrepeller.com.
