Call to Arms: Hey Editors, Who're the Mayors of Your Magazines?

New, 2 comments

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Hey, Anna Wintour, you may be the living-legend editor-in-chief of Vogue and the most powerful person in the multi-billion dollar fashion industry, but Kaitlin Yapchaian is owning you on Foursquare.

Out of sheer curiosity (and snow-day hotel-bound-ness), we scoured Foursquare to find out who's the mayor of what in the fashion-related media-editorial world. Not surprisingly—the fashion industry isn't especially well-known for being an early-adopter of new technology or social media (note Karl Lagerfeld's fax-persistence)—lots of mayors work in the design and interactive departments at magazines. There are still some titles up for grabs, including Harper's Bazaar, Nylon, and the entire Hachette Filipacchi empire. And Marie Claire, Lucky, and Glamour aren't even listed venues yet!
