About me

laura anderson a forte for fashion


I’m Laura, a 30-year-old Leeds girl who loves to blog.

I’ve had this blog in some form or another since 2008 – I know I know that’s a long time right?

A Forte for Fashion was started as a creative outlet while I was studying Journalism at University. Fun-fact I wrote my dissertation about fashion blogging. ‘Will the rise of fashion blogging increasingly marginalise the main-stream fashion media?’ I wrote that in 2010. Am I mystic meg? You be the judge.

This blog is all about speaking to the average woman on the street, who likes to splash out every now and again but the bulk of her wardrobe is made up of high-street buys and bargains. I hope you enjoy your visit – you can find me on Twitter or Instagram if you have any questions.
