Meet our SS15 LFW Community Correspondents!

New York Fashion Week is a wrap, and we’re ready to experience all that London Fashion Week has to offer! We're excited to announce that Burberry will be hosting two of our members, golestaneh and loeswhite, at the Burberry S/S15 Womenswear show on Monday, September 15. Our community correspondents will be reporting back to you while attending the Burberry show and visiting the Burberry showroom.

Get to know more about our London Fashion Week correspondents: 

Meet Golestaneh!

My name is Golestaneh. I’m a shop owner and fashion blogger from Cologne, Germany.



Q. What are you most looking forward to about the Burberry experience?
A. It will be terrific to see the Burberry runway show live, as it is one of the biggest brands worldwide. I’m excited to catch the whole atmosphere. See the location in its entirety, the colours, materials and shapes of the collection in every detail, the models and hear the music that has been chosen to accentuate the subtext of the collection. And of course, the reactions of the fashion crowd. Everything that you cannot transport through runway pics.

Q. What are you most excited to report back to the Polyvore community?
A. Since I’m not the only one reporting about fashion week, for me, it’s important to show how I experience the fashion madness as a normal girl - like a child reporting about Disneyland.

Q. How do you plan to use Polyvore to keep up with fashion week?
A. Will definitely create sets with my favourite looks and show the Polyvore community where they can find and buy the looks immediately.

Q. Anyone you’re hoping to spot around London Fashion Week?
A. All my fashion friends I have already met and those I may get to know. It’s so much fun to meet them every season!

Meet Loes!

My name is Loes, I'm a 22 year old student and blogger and I live in London. I've been using Polyvore for a few years now and I'm super excited and lucky to be attending Burberry as a community correspondent!



Q. What are you most looking forward to about the Burberry experience?
A. I can't wait to experience a Burberry show first hand; I've been watching their live streams online for years but I'm betting the atmosphere there is electric.

Q.What are you most excited to report back to the Polyvore community?
A. I'm excited to share the details of the collection we see at Burberry as well as street style outside and any celebrity sightings! Hopefully I can make the Polyvore community feel like they have an inside look at the Burberry show.

Q. How do you plan to use Polyvore to keep up with fashion week?
A. I'm using Polyvore as a mood board for potential outfits, to recreate trends we've seen and to showcase my favourite runway looks.

Q. Anyone you're hoping to spot around LFW?
A. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (she's my favourite model), Anna Dello Russo (for the outfits) and Leandra Medine (she's every fashion blogger's idol). Oh, and Douglas Booth for some eye candy.
