Mad Respect: Valentine Uhovski
When fashion giants like Carine Roitfeld launch their digital magazines, they consult people like Valentine Uhovski. His unconventional title at Tumblr — “Fashion Evangelist” — suits him well since Valentine does much more than your average tech job. He almost acts as a doula for fashion brands who need to spread their gospel through the digital landscape with some cool cred. Dior, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, and Burberry have all come knocking on the door for his concise guidance. Perhaps that’s why Forbes put him on their 2013 Art & Style “30 Under 30” list.
But that’s not all he does. Valentine’s personal passion project, Art Ruby, is an addicting site that documents the here and now of the art world. In essence, if Valentine is excited about something, you should pay attention to it. This is why we have mad respect for him.

Valentine Uhovski: Fortune favors the bold.
