The blog the Business of Fashion ties in the economy, the role of still-influential major fashion journalists, and the experimentation and missteps with digital media in its wrap-up of fashion month around the world. It paints a picture of an industry in flux, evolving in fits and starts, and testing out new ideas (and, this being fashion, facing scorn when they don’t work, as Burberry did with its instant-sale experiment).

As in journalism, which is facing even more challenges, in the fashion industry there seems to be a prevailing collective question of “What do we do next?” As the ancient curse goes, may you live in interesting times.
