I did a short interview for Tory Burch’s blog that was published yesterday. The one representative quote that got pulled out and enlarged was “One day I’d love to publish a graphic novel”. Yes, I am a comic book geek, haha :-) Thank you to Honor Brodie and the Tory Burch team for featuring me.
I’ll never forget that Tory Burch was one of the first designers to give Polyvore a chance. Back then, Polyvore was only 6 people and I handled our ad sales. I was trying to find a big-name client to help validate our advertising programs. Tory was willing to experiment with us (she’s always been at the cutting edge of social media) and her community challenge turned out to be a huge success. That challenge became one of our flagship case studies, and it even got written up in the New York Times. Fast forward one year and now we’re on the radar of a lot more designers.
Thank You, Tory Burch!
