Conceived as a networking event in cyberspace for luxury industry insiders, Luxury Society has attracted about 2,000 members so far, several hundred of which are executives from luxury firms.
For many, it is their first experience with social media. The Paris-based social network site, which quietly launched in February, offers profiles and the ability to link to others as well as discussion forums and an editorial section with articles and links to other publications. Later this year, it will add services, reports on the luxury industry and job postings.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
