At the risk of sounding corny, the small (yet mighty!) team here at Fashionista pours its blood, sweat and tears into the stories we publish every day. There are a lot of very, very late nights, frenzied weekend email chains, "drop everything" breaking news moments, social-media deep dives that border on stalking and marathon market weeks, fashion months and red-carpet seasons that run us so ragged that it's a miracle we're able to write complete sentences when they're over. That said, we do it because we love our site, this industry and you, dear readers, whose positive feedback makes us want to do more, be better and think even further outside the box.
Because we work at such a breakneck pace, we rarely stop to appreciate the pieces that really made an impression over the course of the year. Our writers and editors have a lot to be proud of, thanks to stories that made us think, made us laugh (or, in a few cases, cry) and started constructive conversations — within the industry and beyond — among our peers and readers. In the spirit of the new year, we hand-picked our favorite articles of the year, ranging from reported-out investigations to our thoughts on the most absurd happenings in fashion. If you find yourself bored on vacation, consider this your go-to reading list. See you in 2017!
