Excited to have made Digiday’s list! Below is my interview.
“Ranking of the 10 Most Influential Male Pinners”
"While Rossetti works at a marketing agency, his dream is to strike out on his own as a fashion writer. To that end, he keeps an self-titled fashion blog and uses Pinterest to drive traffic there. He launched his Pinterest profile in mid-2009, back when the platform was still invite-only. “I saw it as an opportunity to put all the things I was looking at on blogs and categorize them,” he told Digiday.
From the outset, his Pinterest page was focused on menswear. “I was specific in what I was pinning, and I’ve stuck to that.” But it wasn’t until 2013 that Rossetti transitioned from curating menswear styles to taking original fashion photos and posting them to his Pinterest page. He has been featured on GQ’s fashion blog The GQ Eye and by Pinterest itself in a “pinterview.” The popularity of his Pinterest page and blog has lead to some fashion reporting opportunities. Vineyard Vines and jewelry brand Giles & Brother invited him to cover their upcoming collection debuts, and Banana Republic sent Rossetti free samples from its “Mad Men” last fall.”
