INTERNET COMMUNICATION


Journalistic media are the trend sources of online users


Fashionoffice has asked users to decide where Fashionistas get the trendiest information about fashion, design, beauty on the Internet.

For the second time since 2008, the users have chosen with 50% online publications like magazines and daily news as the trendiest online source for the personal style. On the second place are social media platforms like communities and blogs followed by online shops.

INSPIRATION FOR THE PERSONAL STYLE

By asking the Fashionistas where they are getting the inspiration for the personal style on- or offline, it becomes obvious that the internet ranks not on one of the front positions. Once in the Fashionoffice voting the media with the greatest authenticity for Fashionistas' style, the internet went behind the top-position to the 5th place! But it's the first time since 2008 that the importance of the internet grows again.

Fashion people prefer to get inspired on the street, by art & design, and by printed magazines and TV.

MOBILE COMMUNICATION

The mobile phone becomes increasingly the 'outdoor computer'. Since 2003 Fashionoffice researches the most important trends by asking users online on Styleradar and Beautyradar. During the last Styleradar-survey, online fashionistas were asked for the first time even if web or gaming can be counted to the trendiest extra usages of the mobile phone.

The phone as digital calendar (includes clock or agenda functions) was not included into the voting, but named by the users as one of the trendiest extra usages.

Un-timed multimedia consumption such as listening music and watching or making video is preferred against timed entertainment like TV and radio. This is not a vote against editorial content. Watching TV - which is defined especially by providing editorial content, has gained more votes than video and is on the second place (1st place music) if the results are ranked after the criteria 'using internet on the phone'. Photo is still the trendiest extra usage of the mobile phone.

SUBJECT TO SPEAK ABOUT

Since around one year the preferred subjects to speak about constantly change from romantic and spiritual themes like love, religion, peace to the magazine's core themes: fashion, clothes, style, art, culture, design and music. 'Self realization' and the subject 'sex' became more important.

The stronger focus on speaking about 'fashion, clothes' could be explained with better working search engines and the growing understanding of users to find specific information; such as information about fashion at Fashionoffice. It's the nature of the internet to minimize continuously the spreading losses or time for searching with the help of the users themselves while they are interacting with the media - the internet is ‘learning’ the users’ behaviour.

MUST HAVE: SHOE STYLE for Jeans, Mini-Dress, Long Skirt

The Internet Fashionistas tested their trendiness in Shoe Style and voted for the absolute Must-Haves for Jeans, Mini-Dress, and Long Skirt.

The High Heel Boots are no longer the favorite shoes for Jeans. Sportive Sneakers are the new number one for Jeans. The choice for comfortable shoes corresponds to the results of the voting about the trendiest style.

But Sneakers are obviously only a Must-Have for jeans; don't wear them with a Mini-Dress! The High Heel Boots even lost in the voting for the Must-Have for the Mini-Dress. Elegant Pumps are the favorite shoes for short dresses, skirts.

Flat Shoes are the overall winner in this voting: you can wear them to Jeans, the Mini-Dress and the Long Skirt. Stilettos constantly lost their trendiness in the votings during the last years: it seems as if the sinking popularity has stopped. Elegant Pumps are always a good choice.

Fashionoffice has asked "What is the trendiest personal style?". The users had the choice to vote for one of 19 variables from 'Classic' to 'Romantic', over 'Mod' or 'Sporty'.

The favorite personal styles haven't changed in the three top positions since the last field period: Vintage, Unique, Classic are still the favorite personal styles.

Glamour is less important, while the 'artful' looks 'Boho/Bohemian' and 'Art Deco' became trendier.

ACTOR 2008

For the first time the Internet Fashionistas had the chance to vote for an actor; but surprise: the voting for the most fashionable male actor was of no interest for the users. The fact that users of fashionoffice.org are not participating in a voting about "Test your trendiness in FILM! Decide who is the most fashionable actor" is the most interesting result here: this is a decision against a ranking of male actors by the mainly female Internet Fashionistas in fashionoffice.org.

The few votes went to:

Justin Timberlake 38,5 %
Johnny Depp 30,8 %
Brad Pitt 15,4 %
George Clooney 7,7 %
Jude Law 7,7%
MEN’S STYLE

Users described with an adjective the trendiest men's style.

Men's style becomes more simple and casual.

The importance of the 'Simple'-style grows stronger than any other men's style during the most recent Fashionoffice Styletrends-survey (run time until 23 January 2010). The results reflect the current trend for a simple lifestyle and the growing consciousness for cultural heritage: Modern Vintage is with 26,89% the favorite men's style, followed by Simple (16,81%) and Casual (10,08%).

Urban and Classical lost many votes, while Sporty and Business seem to become more important for online fashionistas.

Fashionistas Cities

Since 2008, Fashionoffice asks users to vote for five Fashion Cities (New York, Paris, London, Milano, Tokyo). In the years before, the list contained more city names like Los Angeles, Amsterdam, Stockholm or Vienna; these cities are interesting for the users too, but they are not counting to the international 'hot spots' in fashion.

In the last years, Tokyo became increasingly more interesting for Fashionistas; especially for finding interesting business partners. The Asian fashion city is strongly associated with artful collections. Paris leads still the ranking for the most artful collections (since 2008), followed by Tokyo and London.

The best ready to wear is associated with New York, Paris, and Milano.

New York is the city where the Fashionistas are awaiting the most interesting business partners, followed by Tokyo and Paris.
