What is Lookbook?

As per Andy Warhol “In the future everyone will be famous for 15 minutes.” And with the advent of a number of social media sites out there, it is indeed very possible. Now, there are a number of ways where you can promote yourself for gratification and attention. You can empower and endorse yourself either by your opinions or your looks. As the saying goes, “if you have it then flaunt it.” This I think is the back drop of another social media site that is getting much attention from stylists, models, photographers and fashion icon wannabe’s. Have you heard of the Lookbook website?

The Lookbook is an online collection of photographs of people from all over the world who primarily shows off their fashion style and taste. Usually you will find a lot of bloggers, amateur and professional photographers, students, stylists, artists, editors, vloggers, designers and models strutting their style in this popular fashion site.

One of the main reason why this is a hit for a lot of people is because of the freedom that they give to people when it comes to their fashion choices. This site is not merely a site to flaunt but it is also a good fashion community where you will gain friends and fashion tips from experts all over the world. May it be about photography, style, pose or lighting; this site has all of that and more.

I specially appreciate the fact that a number of Fashion bloggers are slowly making their “mark” with a simple post or two at the Lookbook site. There is a good chance that some day some one really important in the fashion industry will see and appreciate their work and be amazed of their styling and modeling technique.

The reason why I am highly enthusiastic about this site even though I do not have the slightest idea about styling and modeling is because this simple platform can one day really catapult someone’s fashion career. And I do hope that their fame will last more than Andy Warhols’ prediction.
