Many may argue one’s rightful place at the top of the fashion chain. Some may place the most important and influential title in the hands of fashion designers, as it is their vision, art and talent that lead and motivate the people. Others might conclude that fashion editors are responsible for introducing brands and trends into mainstream masses, so it is them that reign supreme.

Many arguments can and have been made, but one site has taken on the responsibility in handing out 1500 titles to different people that make fashion FASHION. A friend just introduced me to an amazingly forward thinking site called STYLEITE. They have created the ‘Power Grid’ of the Who’s Who in the billion dollar business that is fashion. I thought I would share with you all the list of models, fashion photographers and brand executives!
