Teen Vogue launches new user-generated site, The Fashion Click, located at http://fashion.teenvogue.com. The site draws from blogs around the world and utilizes proprietary aggregating technology to showcase young bloggers via learning technology and user voting.

The concept was created by startup Tidal Labs as Teen Vogue hopes to bring readers closer to the styles they love by giving them a voice and a platform to showcase their coolest and most current DIY looks.

We think this is a great tactic for cultivating new talent by traditional media and optimizing reach among potential online readers.

We're interrupt our Fashion Week enthusiasm to share news that has caught out eye...
