Introducing Collections!

Today we launched an exciting feature that we know so many of you have been waiting for! With our new collections feature, you can group together your favorite sets and items under a common fashion trend or theme. The coolest part is within a collection, you can combine both your own sets and your favorites sets from other Polyvore members. There's also a description box so you can add your own narrative.

Here's how to create your first collection:

On your profile page, click "Create your first collection."

You can then select sets or items you want to add to your collection from the "Sets", "Favorites" and "Items" tabs. Make collections with your own sets or mix them with your favorites, too.



Another way to add sets or items to your collection is from the set or item page itself. Just click on the "Add to collection" link.



You can embed your collections on your own blog, as well. Click on the "Embed the collection" link, grab the code, and you're ready to share your collection with the world!



Take a peek at some of the collections we put together:

We hope you like the new feature, and as always we look forward to hearing your feedback!

Oh hey, that's my profile on the example! I love this idea and I can't wait to make some collections as soon as the site is back up after maintenance. I like that we can use sets out of our favorites. I'd like to have a place to display all the lovely sets other people have made for me.

I love the collections feature! But I was wondering if there was any way that we could comment on each other's collections...

Thank you Polyvore Team for the new Collections feature. We all have so many sets; I now feel much more organized!

melissa said...

this is a really good idea but could there be a way to take a set out of a collection? because i added one by accident and now i can't take it out!

This is really cool. I've been wishing we had something like this. Thanks. Is there a limit to how many collections you can make like in how many groups we can open?

can anyone explain how to make a showcase though?

I'm really enjoying this new feature, but have been thinking it would be nice if there was a link on the recent activities page to let you know when someone has added one of your sets to a collection and possibly even something that alerts us when one of our friends makes a new collection. Way to go Team Poly!

how do you add your set to a particular celebrity's page (if the set is an homage to that celebrity's style)? thank you.

My second set came out tiny and with items in it that I can't remove. Where do we go for technical help?
