While surviving in the fashion industry can involve a lot of inside politics, I find that those, who are the most objective, and sometimes the most sincere in their judgement, are fellow bloggers. And despite the raging debate about Bryan Boy, Tavi and co joining Anna Wintour in the front row, I think it's refreshing to see that those with a real love for clothes can now enjoy the shows as much as those, who are paid to cover them.

So here are two new blogs, which I randomly discovered whilst browsing through my favourite sites. Both of them display a lot of originality as well as sharp critique - after all, something that you can't find on newwstands that often.

1. The Man Repeller

Taking the idea of clothes that women love, but men hate, The Man Repeller is an extremely insightful analysis of street style fads that the "non-fashion" consumer is not likely to comprehend. That includes clogs, 80s flashbacks and of course, the harem trousers. Basically, everything that you see on the catwalk, and everything that will guarantee you NO success on a first date.

2. Searching for Style

Searching for Style is edited by Alexandra Suhner Isenberg, who previously worked as a designer at Burberry. Two years ago, Alexandra decided to move back to Canada and started her own fashion blog, which displays her own opinion on shows. My favourite section is the "I love..." and "I loathe..." - an analysis of trends that's so honest, it's not afraid to compare Balenciaga's pre-collection suits to those of a 60s stewardess. This girl definitely knows her game!
