It feels like every time we open the style section of a newspaper, there's an article about the growing power of blogs in the fashion world, with quotes from Susie Bubble and a picture of Bryanboy in the front row. So WWD readers who take the publication's customer survey might be surprised to see that in all the multiple-choice questions about what media influences your personal shopping decisions, "fashion blogs" is never an option. Instead, the selections basically come down to Vogue and Elle, New York Fashion Week, or, um, trade shows. So much for the digital revolution. [RackedWire]
