Rich Tong, the fashion director at Tumblr, just posted some exciting news for Tumblr users, especially those of you who specialize in beauty. It sounds like they’re sending a troop of bloggers to New York Fashion Week again to cover the spring shows this September, but they’re adding a focus on beauty and accessories.
This is fantastic news for beauty Tumblrs, of which there are many amazing ones. Here’s what Rich posted:
With NYFW less than 8 weeks away, we’re looking to send some of the most creative people from our community to cover fashion week on our behalf.
Last February, we were amazed at the incredible coverage from the 24 Tumblr bloggers at fashion week and I can’t wait to see what happens in September. This time around, in particular, we’re looking to include 4 bloggers to specifically cover beauty, hair, shoes & accessories.
If you’d like to recommend someone (or yourself!) for one of those 4 categories, let me know! Send me an email at [email protected] with a link to the blog, the category of choice and why you think they’d be a great fit. Can’t wait to hear from you guys!
We emailed Rich for more information and while they’re still working out all the details, they’re definitely trying to secure backstage access for its bloggers. So get your cameras ready and send your work over to Tumblr. Good luck!
