Tumblr is Going Back to NYFW
In what's quickly becoming a fashion and internet tradition, Tumblr's once again taking the best of their fashion creators and sending them to New York Fashion Week. For the past few seasons, Tumblr's Fashion Evangelist, Valentine Uhovski, has worked tirelessly to pair up these talented bloggers with designers, brands and icons during the shows. We've come to expect skilled photographers and witty commentators from their crop and this year is no exception. The chosen ones, as we like to call them, have shared their excitement and a few of their favorite posts with us.
So without further ado, we present to you the Tumblr Fashion Week Class of Fall 2013:
In his own words, Thread and Salt is: Food Photography & Personal Style - "denim, and risotto"
On his past experience: "Coming off an education in Restaurant/Hospitality I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do post college, so I started this blog and took it from there. Since then, I've worked for Ernest Alexander, the NYC based American made menswear company, partnered with a few brands through Thread & Salt and carved a career with the digital creative agency Tarmac Creative."
Why he's excited to attend NYFW with Tumblr: "I've lived vicariously through personal friends & past NYFW tumblr bloggers Jace Lumley & Alex Maier for the past two seasons. I've heard the countless stories of stellar shows, unforgettable after parties and a true week unlike anything I've ever experienced. I've been verbally urged to "DO EVERYTHING" and thats exactly what I intend on doing. This is truly the chance of a god damn lifetime."

In her own words, Jaimen's tumblr is, "my personal style blog. My goal is to showcase a constantly-changing variety of old and new, high and low, that’s accessible to all style-conscious ladies, unique to my fashion sense and somewhat trend-driven."
On her past experience: "I've been a fashion blogger for a couple years now and have had a lot of fun partnering with various brands. I've also guest blogged for a number of outlets and attended Tel Aviv fashion week last year, which was amazing."
Why she's excited to attend NYFW with Tumblr: "I'm excited to share everything I see with my readers - from the shows and presentations to street style, beauty and what I'm wearing day to day!"

Brandon describes Humans of New York as " a collection of over 5,000 portraits taken on the streets of New York City."
On his past experience: "I have a very uninformed perspective on fashion. In general, I'm drawn to beautiful things that I've never seen before. A lot of times that happens to be clothing."
Why he's excited to attend NYFW with Tumblr: "Love to meet new people and see new things. Excited about the opportunity to do both."

In his own words, William describes his tumblr as, "a visual mood board, featuring images I like as well as images made by myself."
On his past experience: "I used to crash fashion shows, now I'm invited to them. That's pretty rad. I love the shows but I'm a sucker for real fashion on the streets, it's not about what people are wearing but about how they are wearing it. The fashion industry is forever changing yet everything is the same."
Why he's excited to attend NYFW with tumblr: "Some of the coolest people I know were a part of Tumblr Fashion Week before, plus it's an exclusive group with special access and access is everything!"
