In lieu of this week’s Fab Friday interview feature, we wanted to highlight the Fab sponsors of Blogtour 2011 that I’ll be covering for Simplifying Fabulous at the end of this month! What ever is Blogtour 2011, you ask? I think that they can best explain:
Modenus, the online design resource, in collaboration with MMPI (Merchandise Mart Properties Inc.), the producers of the Architectural Digest Home Design Show and mydeco.com are organizing Blogtour 2011 and Blogtour 2012. The tours will bring bloggers from US and UK together, first at London Design Festival in September of 2011 and then again during New York Design Festival in March of 2012.
The mission of Blogtour is to further the understanding and awareness of design in the US, UK and Europe and support networking and information exchange between design bloggers, designers, artisans and manufacturers while providing more exposure for international design events.
What a fab idea, right?! During my five days in London, you’ll be able to follow along with all of the happenings of Blogtour 2011 both here on Simplifying Fabulous! and Facebook, and in real time on Twitter using hashtag #blogtour2011.
Who’s responsible for merging these two blogging communities? Who’s encouraging all of this cross-cultural chatter? Who’s supporting an international design lovefest? Well, that would be the following fabulous lads and ladies from across the pond:
I’m inspired by these websites…can’t wait to see what the experience is like in person!!
