In the past, a ticket to a designer’s show represented acceptance and influence within the fashion industry for a blogger. Now, however, it appears that many of these personal-brand empires, big and small, are going to have to find a new way to participate in Fashion Week as IMG, the company ultimately responsible for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, has decided to discontinue inviting many of the bloggers that have become recent fixtures at Lincoln Center.

The only requirement for the competition was that every woman be 5’4” or under.

The Los-Angeles based clothing company, Acrylick draws its inspiration from music, and through collaborating with the up-and-coming Canadian dubstep artist Datsik, has released a clothing line with the sass and energy of the Firepower label. The leggings and print shirts are the unmistakable uniform of West Coast music culture, and are just plain cool to look at. At first glance, the clothes seem busy, but don't distract or bombard the eye; rather, they insist the observer take a closer look. Datsik's approach to his line, however, demonstrates artistic symbolism that is heavily influenced by the music industry. Loud and expressive without being chaotic, the shirts feature three distinct designs: speakers arranged in a geometric patterns, a woman painted in blue wearing a gas mask, and compressors colored with burnt orange and cool blue finished with Datsik's graffiti insignia.
