Like anything found in the fashion world, fashion blogging is subjected to constant changes all the time. These changes refer to the general perception of fashion blogging as such, and also to the main purposes its followers have. There are such ideas according to which fashion blogging is actually dying nowadays. However, some more people argue with that, stating that it’s not dying, it’s just changing instead. The principles and the ways of collaborations between fashion brands and bloggers have changed, too. Being equipped with the top modern strategies and marketing skills and possibilities, brands are reviewing their collabs with bloggers for their own sake and popularity, too. The main shift that has been taking space here is the nature of the collaboration. Thus, the main and most popular way is the advertorial space left for the brands.
