A fashion influencer is a personality that has a large following on social media, creates fashion content, and has the power to influence the opinion and purchase behavior of others with their recommendations. In many case brands endorse them, which leads these influencers to giving honest feedback on products.
Forbes business magazine identified fashion influencers as “the new celeb endorsements”. These social media influencers seem to have a closer relationship with their audience than traditional celebrities.
