Gloss! is a dorm-room startup, founded in January 2012 in IIT Madras, and launched in June in the Ryerson Digital Media Zone, Toronto, with the help of an awesome team. Women's magazines are NOT “frivolous”, “trash” or for those kinds of girls. If anything, they've historically gone hand-in-hand with the feminist movement and help capture the realities of young women of a place and time. That's So Gloss! is a free and online magazine with content written/photographed/videographed by youngsters themselves! You can browse Gloss! by Category, Author and Location, sign up for a free membership to join the conversation and also get involved. We encourage you to keep in touch with us on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest and YouTube and like/share/follow/tweet/subscribe, etc. and be part of a growing network of amazing women.
