Social Media Won't Save Fashion's Idiot Savants

L2, a luxury think tank focusing on digital innovation, recently published their second annual Digital IQ index, a ranking of luxury brands online initiatives.

On the Plus Side: Saks to Carry Plus Sized Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana

Plus sized shoppers have been trying to let retailers know that an interest in designer clothes doesn’t diminish relative to an increase in size for years.
