Karen Blanchard is a London transplant with her heart set on New York's vintage shop scene. Obsessed with what she calls New York City's "hidden treasures," on her blog Blanchard documents all that she finds, and shares it with her fans on both sides of the Atlantic. "Now that I've experienced both sides of that big pond, I've often been asked where did I get what I'm wearing so I figured I'd start a blog about it since I'm now a mishmash of both cities," she writes.

African textile influences have become less of a trend and more of a staple in mainstream fashion, and Zandile Blay's Africa Style Daily chronicles it all. This year, Blay will be on hand giving a firsthand account of a day in the life of African model Tolula Adeyemi at New York Fashion Week for the site's first-ever editorial shoot.

Mariane Kihogo has quite the résumé. She was singled out by Dolce & Gabbana for its Dress Me Up Tour, where, as a guest blogger, she was commissioned to style a window display at a D&G boutique. She was also listed in the New York Post's "Best at Show" for New York Fashion Week last year. Kihogo dedicates her blog to catwalk trends, shopping, art and music, interviews and, of course, her own eccentric personal style.
