FashionTK.com gives you the goods on fashion and beauty industry news, trends, and musings, with more on the way. Part rogue portfolio, part blog, FashionTK is the online tryst between writer-editor (me), Glynnis Mapp, and my hired pen. I’m a Toronto-born journalist, trend forecaster, content strategist, and social media expert.
The meaning behind this blog’s name? Well, for journalists, PR people, writers, editors and wordsmiths of all kinds, “TK” is a phonetic placeholder for info that’s on the way (or, “to come”).
A bit about me: I’m a word-type who’s lived and worked in Paris, covering haute couture and menswear and womenswear pret-a-porter runway shows. I’ve lived, worked and studied in New York (Columbia University). I’ve also traveled the tradeshow circuit, trend forecasting and reporting while attending tradeshows in Vegas and New York. My work has appeared in ELLE Canada and ELLECanada.com, National Post, TorontoLife.com, Corduroy, FLARE, FLARE.com, iVillage.ca, The Kit and TheKit.ca, The Huffington Post Canada, StyleList.ca and New York-based websites, Lookbooks.com, Racked.com and Refinery29.com.
I currently live in New York City.
