Meet our SS17 NYFW Style Insiders!

It's that time again! Fashion Week descends upon New York City next week and we’re super excited to announce our Spring/Summer 2017 NYFW Style Insiders! Meet community members minimalmanhattan and seventeene, both originally from Massachusetts. They’ll be taking over Polyvore's Snapchat and Instagram on Friday, September 9, so be sure to follow along for a behind the scenes look at NYFW!
Meet our SS17 NYFW Style Insiders!

Get to know our correspondents:

Meet Nina (AKA minimalmanhattan)

My name is Nina and I'm a sophomore at New York University in New York City! I live in the East Village with my three best friends and our sweet little Bichon Frise named Poppy. I'm originally from Boston, but moving to NYC was such an easy and exciting transition for me. I'm studying art history, media and communications, as well as women's studies. I love drawing, writing, going to art museums, and sitting in Washington Square Park with a good book to read and relax with.

When and why did you decide to join Polyvore? I first joined Polyvore when I was a freshman in high school. I loved the freedom and creativity it supplied me with, and since I love sharing my fashion inspiration, my account grew and grew.

Your most anticipated SS17 collections? Rag & Bone, Calvin Klein, Alexander Wang, DVF, and Zimmermann.

Anyone you're hoping to spot around NYFW? Danielle Bernstein from WeWoreWhat!

What are your Fashion Week essentials? 


Keep up with Nina on Polyvore and Instagram!

Meet Savanna (aka seventeene)

I'm a 21-year-old journalism student from just outside of Boston. I've been obsessed with fashion and entertainment since I was a kid and I try to create sets on Polyvore at least once a day. I like to spend my free time binge-watching my favorite shows on Netflix, filming makeup tutorials for my YouTube channel, going to concerts, traveling, and snacking on M&M cookies.

When and why did you decide to join Polyvore? I joined Polyvore three years ago while looking for a fun fashion app where I could both create outfits and shop for them. It's been an incredible creative outlet for me that has been one of my favorite apps since I first began using the site.

What are you most excited to report back to the Polyvore community? I'm really excited to share all of the incredible street style looks I'll be seeing outside of the shows!

Your most anticipated SS17 collections? Zuhair Murad, Chanel, Versace, and Dolce and Gabbana Anyone you're hoping to spot around NYFW? I'd love to see Anna Wintour. I've admired her work at Vogue for as long as I can remember.

What does your Fashion Week survival kit include?

The Best of Polyvore: Summer 2016 Denim Edition

Summer is here and we have no doubt: denim is having a moment. We looked at searches on Polyvore, and here’s what we discovered!

Denim Battle: Boyfriend vs. Skinny Jeans 
This year, boyfriend jeans and skinny jeans have each been vying for first place. In late January 2016, boyfriend jeans regained the #1 spot as the most popular cut according to searches on Polyvore, beating out skinny jeans, high-waisted jeans and mom jeans. 

Shake What Your Momma Gave You 
Searches for mom jeans have steadily increased, spiking 250% over the last year. Traditionally known for a high waistline and baggy fit, the modern mom jeans of 2016 are slimmer to the body and look best cropped above the ankle. Don’t forget to tell your mom that her jeans are back in style!

Sizzling Denim Searches 
Interest in denim doesn’t stop at jeans. Our data revealed that the Polyvore community wants alternative denim items like high-waisted shorts, sandals and handbags, further highlighting just how versatile and timeless the fabric can be.
