Interview with INMA ♪

INMA ♪ knows how to set the scene. Combining photographs, text and clothing in fun and abstract ways, it's like staring at pages out of a magazine. During the 2 years she's been a member of Polyvore, you can see how her layout style has evolved from layering to a more spread out style.

Here are some of her sets:

Tell us about yourself.

Hello my name is Inma. I live in the south of Spain close to the sea, which I love, and I've had a passion for fashion for as long as I can remember. I love everything related to fashion, from magazines, the runway, the models, photography, etc. The creativity that exists in the world of fashion is unbelievable. I love to cook (sounds weird, but I also love the kitchen and making new dishes.) I believe that everything can be related to one another in some way. I also love music and have a brother who is a singer in a Spanish band (Los Delinquentes). I think that creativity is carried in our genes.

How would you describe your sense of style?

I have unique style; depends on the day, my mood, and where I go. It's true that I love jeans, rocker style, and the 60s and 70s. I love the color black, as you can see it's closely related to the music I adore: Jimmy Hendrix, David Bowie...

What's hot in your 'hood?

It's summer right now and since I am near the coast, the girls wear a lot of shorts and surfer-style dresses, too. They also wear flowers in her hair, have Romanesque hair-dos and wear braids in their hair. The guys wear printed t-shirts and cargo pants.

What's one thing you wish people would wear more of?

I just want people to take a risk and not be afraid to wear what they want.

How did you discover Polyvore?

I found Polyvore by browsing the internet and looking at blogs. I've been hooked ever since.

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

For me, it's as if Polyvore has always been part of my life! It's one of the greatest discoveries I've made on the internet. I love creating different combinations and expressing the creativity that I know all of us have inside. I've also made some very good friends on here (ﺕ KuKi ﺕ , Beautiful☆Disaster, Moly35, Almuu)...it's like one big family. It's so much fun to spend time here on Polyvore.

If you could share one tip or trick with a new Polyvore member, what would it be?

Enjoy, relax, express yourself and make friends.

Do you have a favorite fashion designer or style icon who has influenced you?

I have several, but one of my favorites is Alexander Wang. I also love the style of the Olsen twins, Alexa Chung, Vanessa Hudgens, Kate Moss and Erin Wasson.

What online stores do you like to clip from?

Net-A-Porter and modekungen.se.

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

What's your favorite set created by another Polyvore member?

Kuki always recreates the perfect look, but still makes it unique and very original.

We last interviewed eightyjane and she wants to know how much time per week you spend on Polyvore?

I don't know exactly, but it is many hours.

Got any feature requests for the Polyvore team?

No...everything is perfect to me. Thanks, Polyvore!
