Polyvore Member Meetup in London!

Nothing means more to us than our passionate and creative member community. One of our greatest joys as a team has always been meeting our members in person. Last week, we held our very first international member meetup in London! Joining us from all over Europe were members golestaneh (Germany), frou-frou (Czech Republic), nookiefime (Romania), bellamarie (Germany), voguevictim (Greece), pocaqooka (the Netherlands), mrs-box, roza-guianna, sherbetfountain, pearlsandstars, bittersweet89 and loeswhite (London).

Polyvore members Maria (voguevictim), Denisa (nookiefime), Indira (pocaqooka), Zara (roza-guianna), Agnes (frou-frou) and Katie (pearlsandstars)
Polyvore partnered with NET-A-PORTER to host this exciting event at NET-A-PORTER's London headquarters on Thursday, May 30. The day kicked off with breakfast at NET-A-PORTER. We spent quality time getting to know our members better over a roundtable discussion. Agnes (frou-frou) shared that she got her job working in fashion PR because of Polyvore. When applying for the job, she was asked what she could offer that was different from other candidates. She shared her Polyvore sets with her prospective employer and got the job. When Agnes asked for time off to attend our meetup in London, her manager was happy to offer it to her. Polyvore member and blogger Denisa (nookiefime) told us that Polyvore changed her life. She started her blog because of how much her interest in fashion grew from the site.

Members met various members of the NET-A-PORTER team, chatted with designers Erdem and Nicholas Kirkwood and had a master class with beauty brand Natura Bissé.

Member Katie (pearlsandstars) had a particularly exciting day with us. The NET-A-PORTER team presented her with a £500 gift card for best sets created around the Erdem and Nicholas Kirkwood collections. Katie said on her blog, "I was so happy to be invited to a meetup like this, but the fact that the former Fashion Director of Vogue Japan and China appreciates what I do in my bedroom is unbelievable. I was presented with my prize, which was a £500 gift card to NET-A-PORTER - mind blowingly generous, I was so shocked!"

Looking forward to many more meetups to come. Many thanks to the NET-A-PORTER team and our amazing community members for creating such a memorable day for all of us!

OH MY GOD!! I was so late to read this and I just so envy with those polyvore members to attended such event like that, hehe.
I want to go to the next meetups too, but since I'm Indonesian, I'm not really good at English and I've never been go abroad yet :( But I really wanna go to this meetup better than any event, so if there's any chance to held the next meetups maybe it could be held in Indonesia? Just an idea, hehe, thanks for sharing anyway.
Polyvore really the best fashion community I've ever know, so far ;)
