Do you go straight to Wikipedia when you need basic information about some topic? While the site is not completely trust-worthy for all the details, it does offer a great overview or starting point for research.
Seeing the success of that venture, Madeline Veenstra, the managing director at Lola PR in Australia, has launched WikiFashion. The site works like any wiki, allowing contributors to create pages and edit the writing of others. Page types include blogs, designers, style icons, models, collections, items, brands and shops. WikiFashion is looking for contributors. Registration is easy and after a little tinkering creating pages becomes easy.
The site is in its infancy but growing daily. No doubt in the months ahead you’ll be able to read about your local fashion blogger and a world-renown designer with the click of the mouse. Plus it offers links to the person’s website, pictures and additional links to areas of interest pertaining to the entry.
For example: The New York Fashion Week Fall 2010 entry offers a play-by-play list of the designers that presented collections each day and links to view videos of the show.
Stay tuned for a Tiger Print entry. I’m off to work on posting one now!
