I'm not a designer. My taste is objectively bad and I actually like socks with sandals. I'm also not part of any clique that I am aware. But I do think I have a keen sense of authenticity.
The Layers Conference looks like one of three conferences I actually ever wanted to attend. Awesome people talking about the stuff that makes them excited is my favorite thing. Go ahead. Go read those bios and tell me that doesn't sound great.
If I didn't house a constant fear that my family would run away if I ever left for more than eight hours, I'd totally be there.
