Abstract

This study adopts an identity perspective to explore the transformational power of fashion blogging on consumer bloggers’ self-concepts. Blog post data and in-depth interviews reveal the changing self-concept of consumers who have started fashion blogging out of curiosity or boredom but, through a gradual process of transformation in close interaction with various stakeholders, conceive themselves as ‘brands in their own right’. This change does not come without struggles, and exploration of the self is not pursued at all expenses. Our findings contribute to a better academic and practical understanding of consumer bloggers in the fashion industry.
