When an institution as venerable as the Metropolitan Museum of Art hosts a panel discussion about fashion and blogging, you know that the impact of the Internet has finally hit maximum fashion velocity. OTM stopped by to catch the 3 panelists in person; Cathy Horyn (NY Times fashion critic, On the Runway), Scott Shuman (The Sartorialist) and Diane Pernet (A Shaded View on Fashion). Areas covered; the importance of a strong vision or voice; how the worlds of journalism and fashion are changing, the significance of bringing not just opinion but information to a blog, how comments by posters should remain on point, and many others.

Scroll down for videos of Scott and Cathy’s.
