Commenting on fashion predates ink and paper by many years, however it was not until 1936 (A.D.) that a class was offered in the discipline of fashion journalism:

"Keeping abreast with current need, the Traphagan School (New York) offers for the first time a course in fashion journalism, which prepares students for positions on magazines and newspapers in advertising departments and agencies where they will interpret in words what they themselves or some other designer relates. The course is conducted by Marie Stark, formerly associate editor of Vogue..."

What all began in 1936 has fully flourished into an industry; today there are a number of schools that offer M.A. degrees in fashion journalism. Charles Baudelaire (1821 - 1867) would be amused - he assumed a pen name in order to publish his fashion musings in a popular woman's magazine of his day.
