Bay Area-based Polyvore, home of thousands upon thousands of visually delectable fashion collages, is pushing at traditional fashion industry boundaries in more ways than one. Not only will the company become the first online community to hold a fashion show during New York Fashion Week, but it’s also skirting norms by choosing prominent fashion bloggers – and not models – for its runway show. Read on for the Polyvore Live lineup. Bet you’ll recognize a few of the faces.
Among the 23 fashion bloggers chosen to walk the runway during Monday’s show are East Bay-er Erin Hagstrom of Calivintage and until-not-so-long-ago-locals Alicia Lund of Cheetah is the New Black and Aimee Song of Song of Style. They’ll don looks from Fashion Institute of Technology alumni Lauren Bagliore, Vengsarkar Budhu, Sergio Guadarrama, and Dana-Maxx Pomerantz.
Catch the show live on Monday at 3:30 p.m. PST here.
