    Wow, a few years ago this thread would have a dozen pages by now! Wonder if this is a sign that Pitti, as an "event", is seeing its end of days, maybe for the same reason so many brick and mortar shops are closing up? Not trolling, serious question.

    Also, just curious, those guys in the picture up there aren't in the trade are they? If so, what exactly is their role at Pitti, like reporting/blogging? Any idea what the ratio of spectators to tradespeople is these days?

    Everything is on Instagram. It's faster, easier and reaches a greater audience.

    Was thinking the same; it's certainly reflective of what StyleForvm has become...

    IG allows a custom feed of personal favorites. However, Styleforum allows for some interesting personal discussion that wouldn't usually happen on IG.

    I'm enjoying the Styleforum IG video. That guy does a very nice job interviewing brands. I do wish he covered more new brands rather than just the obvious such as Carmina.
