Interview with thè cs

Today's interview is with thè cs from Spain. She's been a Polyvore member for a year and is on her way to New York Fashion Week as the winner of Bergdorf Goodman's contest! Her eclectic and artistic eye shows through her sets, which are a beautiful combination of fashion and art.

Here are some of her sets:

And her recent winning set...

(Editor's note: The best part about our community is that it's global! thè cs answered questions in Spanish and we did our very best to translate.)

Tell us about yourself.

My name is Teresa and I'm dedicated to the world of fashion. I'm 43-years old, and I think it's an age where you know who you are and understand what you like. I'm eclectic in almost everything I do. I love my family and friends. I enjoy the smell of the sea and watch it every day when I wake up. I could not live without music. Some of my favorite things are cherries, shoes, bike rides, painting, reading, and the movie Amélie. I'm passionate about Picasso, Klimt and Mary Ellen Mark, among many others. I am very pleased to volunteer in the fight against cancer.

What's the story behind your Polyvore profile name?

thè for Theresa and cs for Castellón, which is where I live.

How would you describe your sense of style?

Eclectic. I like to mix and match. It may very well be a feather skirt with a denim jacket.

You just won the Dress Bergdorf Goodman's Linda Fargo for Fashion Week contest! What made you decide to enter the contest and what was the inspiration behind the look you created?

I entered the contests out of curiosity. At first I did not know who Linda Fargo is. I searched her name and saw pictures and I fell in love with this opportunity.

My inspiration was eclecticism. I found Linda Fargo to be very confident and able to take risks. She knows herself well.

You're going to Fashion Week! How excited are you to join Linda Fargo at the Michael Kors show?

Is it really true?! I'm on a cloud right now. When I fall from it, I'll let you know. :)

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


How did you discover Polyvore?

I discovered Polyvore on a fashion blog.

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

I like everything about Polyvore. It's my best therapy.

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

Be yourself. You cannot create from the soul by looking at what's to your side.

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

Wow, there are so many! I love Galliano, the elegance of Valentino, and the simplicity of Calvin Klein. I also love Manolo Blahnik shoes, G-Star jeans, Converse sneakers, and t-shirts by Custo Barcelona.

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

All of them, they were created from the heart.

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

I love all sets created by Polixena and meliloto.

Got any feature request for the Polyvore team?

No, just my congratulations. You are great.
