It seems that the always-trendy Style.com came up with a new way of turning their platform into a multicultural community, where contributors all around the world will write for the site. With topics like culture, food, music, and of course fashion, people like Kylie Minogue, Courtney Love, Zachary Quinto, Nicole Richie, and other interesting personas, who live in the most transcendent cities today, will share their insights on the cities they habit.
I personally think that this is a great way of bringing, not only followers and readers, but diversity also. Sometimes the world of fashion, specially, seems so limited and not available for everyone, even for some countries, that it might seem out of reach for many. Style.com has made out of itself a very nice, reliable, and more importantly essential source over the years when it comes to style (we all know that if it is in Style.com it is law), so for them to involve this many people (60 to be exact), will help broaden the horizons to other possibilities and to share with all of us, style seekers, an international, fresh, and innovative perspective on style. Have I said the word style enough times already? In case I haven’t, I shall continue.
|The map shows where the contributors are located. There's one in Mexico City, yay!|
One thing that really catches my attention is Mexico City’s contributor to the site, Hamish Anderson. This guy is from England, who lived in NYC for most of his life, that has recently come to Mexico to learn about the typical food, and soon to open a restaurant in one of the trendiest neighborhoods in the city. This makes him a great contributor on the food category of the site, not to mention how Mexican food itself adds an excellent proposal to the project. I would love to see a fashion category for this city on the new Style Map, I believe that there’s a lot of potential in this city for it to be a fashion capital one day. I hope they can add a fashion insider to the contributors list soon, I propose myself to do the job, Style.com you got your girl ;)
Mexico City is still a rough diamond; it only needs more people to realize that.
