Why Karl Keeps His Shades On: Style & Social Media
    Tuesday March 13, 2012 12:30pm - 1:30pm @ Driskill Hotel (Citadel) (604 Brazos Street, Austin, TX 78701)
    Digital democracy has been and gone; at the end of the day, we only want fashion that looks good. Which is, for the most part, highly produced, edited and featuring a well-known model. Fashion social media has had quite a journey so far, whether in the form of the legion of DIY self-promoters on Lookbook and Chictopia, the impromptu crafts community sprung up around Etsy, or the big-name designers putting in their time on Twitter. But we say Karl can leave his glasses on, and even stay away from Twitter. Exclusivity remains key. The future is not in democratizing fashion media online, but in leveraging this audience and arranging it into tiers; idle browser, brand ambassador, fashion insider or member of the Front Row upper echelon.
