An introduction to Polyvore, detailing information for beginners.
Polyvore is a social commerce website that allows anybody to be a fashion designer or a trend setter. Polyvore allows you the ability to create fashion sets / collages, using women’s and men’s clothing, home décor, or anything you like really.
Items are put together in what are called “Sets” and “Collections” and shared with others on the Polyvore platform, along with Social Media, like Pinterest and Facebook.
If you’re a business selling clothing or home décor, then it is worth considering joining Polyvore as one of your Social Media Marketing strategies.
Or if you enjoy creating collages and would like to be a trend setter with fashion, then you will love Polyvore too.
