|Fashion Circles : +1 And Circles For the Fashion Industry|
Welcome to the Fashion Circles website. When we say, "fashion circles" we are partially talking about fashion "social circles" (friends and family discussing fashion relevant topics) and partially we are talking about fashion business circles (business to business communities discussing fashion topics). Actually, both of these classification, the social and business circles, are very similar.
Due to the fact that people involved in fashion typically have a passion for fashion, even when they are discussing business, they are still being very social and friendly with one another. Therefore, they become "friends" even in a work environment. For example, it is not uncommon for a sales person to literally become a friend with a buyer. Possibly in the beginning of the relationship the sales person is being extra nice in the hopes to develop a good business relationship. However, in time the buyer and sales person may genuinely become close friends.
A wonderful example of a business network that has a pleasant and sociable atmosphere is the Fashion Industry Network. If you wish to be part of stylish social circle, my may want to check the fashion circles that have formed in the Groups section on FIN.
In addition to FIN, their are other amazing social circles for you to research. Please read below to learn more about the Google+Project (it is also referenced as Google+, The Google+ Project, +1, Circles, etc.; I am still trying to figure out the official name). For now, you can reference it as Google+ if you wish.
Unfortunately, Google+ is Closed. Google shut down the service to the public (closed in 2019).
Below is for historical reference.
The purpose of below is to provide a place for members of the fashion industry to learn about Circles from the Google + Project.
First, let's figure out the answer to the questions, "What are circles?".

If you have a chance, you may want to read the Tech Crunch Article About Google+ that they posted on June 28th, 2011. Certainly, features maybe changing but this is a good initial introduction.
Just incase you were actually trying to learn the meaning of a traditional "Circle", here is the definition from Wikipedia from July 2011. "A circle is a simple shape of Euclidean geometry consisting of the set of points in a plane that are a given distance from a given point, the centre. The distance between any of the points and the centre is called the radius. Circles are simple closed curves which divide the plane into two regions: an interior and an exterior. In everyday use, the term "circle" may be used interchangeably to refer to either the boundary of the figure, or to the whole figure including its interior; in strict technical usage, the circle is the former and the latter is called a disk. A circle is a special ellipse in which the two foci are coincident and the eccentricity is 0. Circles are conic sections attained when a right circular cone is intersected by a plane perpendicular to the axis of the cone." Learn more about the Circle at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circle
