Nina Garcia does it all. She's the creative director of Marie Claire. She's a Project Runway judge. She's a Google Glass ambassador. And now, she's joined startup Quarterly, a service that will send you a box of goodies hand-picked by Garcia or other taste-making contributors every quarter.
So far, no specific details have been released concerning the contents of her first box, which is set to ship in two months. The theme, though, is "all things fashion," but as the editor clarifies, "fashion is influenced by culture so expect to find those elements as well." A subscription to Nina Garcia's box is $100 per quarter—costly, considering similar boxes by food personalities like the guys from Animal are going for half that. If Garcia isn't your speed, you can browse Quarterly's eclectic lineup of contributors (Bill Nye the Science Guy? Reality TV star Coco T?) here.
