Hey kids. I'm sure by now, you've all heard of Coutorture.
Here's the way I see it. The blogging community here in San Francisco is insane. The ones I know are mainly high tech bloggers, like the boy. They travel in loose packs, ping each other, track each other, go drinking together. They have lengthy discussions in their own language about every minutiae of coding. It's not some exclusive club, it's a community of geekerati who share the same
obsessions interests. They throw parties and talk about new technology. They help each other find jobs. Together, they have helped each other be a force to be reckoned with, voices to be heard alongside but separate from what the big companies will shove at you.
I see Julie and Phil trying to do similar things with the global fashion blogosphere. Why use Coutorture? Because right now, our numbers are fewer, we're spread further apart, we're not easy to find. (Believe me, I try.) If their aim is to bring the fashion blogging community closer, I'm there.
