About Us

Fashion Reverie takes you from the front lines of fashion to the front row. Fashion Reverie came into being out of a need for an insightful, well-researched, journalistic approach that explores the breathe and width of global fashion.  From our Fashion Features section that gives a layered, detailed perspective on the fashion industry to our Style and Beauty section that explores the growing accessories and beauty market to our Front Row section that gives readers an inside purview into current collections ranging from fall/winter to spring/summer to resort/holiday collections, Fashion Reverie is the go-to online magazine for all things fashion.
