Justify yourself: We ask bloggers why they’re valuable to brands

First Vogue called out bloggers for heralding the death of style. Then, Neiman Marcus piled on, blaming bloggers for changing customer expectations and creating fatigue — before clothes even hit shelves.

Other brands, however, are adapting how they work with influencers. Proenza Schouler and Tanya Taylor, for example, both only give bloggers clothing that is available in stores, not from collections that haven’t been shipped.

A third (35 percent) of people said they read blogs over magazines because it felt more “accessible.”
