Fashion has Brains
Edited by Ashe Every week I am always surprised by the selection of posts we receive  here at IFB.  I think back to before I started my blog, the discrimination I felt working in retail and adoring fashion, because it  was shallow and it wasn’t academic. Now I look at the community I am a  part of and think– how could anyone accuse fashion enthusiasts of being  shallow? Or fashion designers, lovers of style?  Indeed, like any  frowned upon medium or niche, fashion has brains; it has ingenuity, it  has controversy, it has creativity, and it has depth.This week I want to celebrate those putting fashion and intellect  together, to show that there’s more than meets that glittering eye…
Oh, and if you’re looking for something to do this summer… IFB is  looking for interns!
