Transcript of LOOKBOOK.nu
When LOOKBOOK.nu started it was invite only (which was not a part of the original plan). This helped contribute to the growth and awareness of LOOKBOOK because it upheld a certain "expectation of quality looks" and users loved it because it made it more exclusive and interactive.
LOOKBOOK's growth has almost been entirely though word of mouth and had even been mentioned in Vogue and Cosmopolitan. Fashion enthusiast spread word of lookbook through blogs, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, ect.
People use LOOKBOOK.nu on a personal level by posting looks. They're able to tag their looks and give info about what they're wearing and where they got it from.
The community interacts with each other by "hyping" looks that they like, leaving comments, participating in forums, ect.
It allows us to see how the rest of the world views fashion at any particular moment in time and get inspired by what other people are doing.
LOOKBOOK.nu has now stretched to over 80 countries around the world.
LOOKBOOK.nu is today used by thousands of stylists, photographers, designers and fashion editors to shape and inform the global fashion industry.

LOOKBOOK.nu was created by Yuri Lee and her boyfriend, Andy Chen. He works on most of the application development while Yuri does the rest. This includes coding, design, community moderation, and marketing/ collaboration efforts.
They knew each other in college and moved to San Francisco after graduating. Yuri and her boyfriend were discussing websites, which led to the topic of fashion, especially street fashion.
They launched LOOKBOOK.nu together from their small apartment and after a month it started to take off.
They both decided to quit their jobs and work on the site full time.
