The essay analyses fashion blogs as discursive and performative sites for the dissemination and production of fashion and provides a critical analysis of the processes of authorship, identity and persona construction from a feminist perspective. It also traces the recent cultural-historical developments, which have paved the way for the representation of identity and selfhood performed and displayed on fashion blogs. The author discusses continuities and dis-continuities in written and visual female authorship from the 1960s to the present.

Keywords:   Fashion blogs, Female Self, Authorship, Identity politics, Feminist perspective
