Interview with RayMedeiros

Today's interview is with RayMedeiros. She's from Brazil and though she's fairly new to Polyvore, she has a great sense of style and imagination with her sets. Each of her sets captures something different and so you never know what to expect! Take a peek at RayMedeiros' world...

Here are some of her sets:

Tell us about yourself.

I'm 27 years old, live in Brazil and work in advertising. I love fashion, makeup, pop culture, movies and photography. I have a fertile imagination and adore found new tendencies. I love the internet. I've never missed an episode of Gossip Girl.

Describe your sense of style/fashion.

I don’t have an academic diploma in fashion, but I've always been interested in it. I love to mix all styles. My personal style is hi-lo and a little boho-rocker, too.

Are there any particular fashion trends that you've been seeing people wear in Brazil right now?

Boyfriend jeans, headbands, bandage dresses, leather jackets, fringe, little black sexy-glam. Nude is the new black now.

How did you discover Polyvore?

I heard about Polyvore in a fashion blog and I follow Polyvore on Twitter.

Tell us a little about what you use Polyvore for and why. What do you like about Polyvore?

I think Polyvore is an excellent opportunity to use the imagination to build any look using your creativity. For those who love fashion, like me, Polyvore is amazing! It offers all kinds of brands and product options. The competitions are so stimulating and you're rewarded so well. I love Polyvore, it's my guilty pleasure. I look forward to updates, participating of the competitions, receiving comments and making friends.

Describe your set creation process. Where do you get inspiration for your sets? How do you pick a theme? How do you find your items?

My inspiration comes from movies, photographs, travels, beautiful clothes, fashion shows, and sets in Polyvore. I create from a theme and Polyvore has a great cast of clothes and accessories that inspire me. I always look at sets and Polyvore images.

What are your favorite designers and online stores you like to clip products from?

Marc Jacobs, Chanel, Vivienne Westwood, Philip Lim, Balenciaga, Tom Ford, Net-A-Porter, 25 Park, Eruca and many others.

What are your 3 favorite sets of the ones you've made?

Got any feature requests for the Polyvore team?

I created a community for Brazilians that love Polyvore. It would be great if you could publish a Polyvore community on Orkut (similar to the Facebook fan page.)
