How Polyvore Became a Trend-Setter in Social Shopping

For that, you can thank companies like Polyvore, an online community whose members curate product images from all over the web to make digital fashion collages, called "sets," that can be shared on social networks like Facebook and Twitter. Co-founders Pasha Sadri (CEO) and Jess Lee (VP of product) got their data mashup cred at Yahoo Pipes and Google Maps, respectively, and have created what is essentially a crowdsourced fashion magazine that reflects real-time trends.

The idea for Polyvore first came to Sadri in early 2007, after he'd built a virtual mood board tool to help with a house redesign project. An eye for fashion: Here's the winner from the Seattle Angel Conference. Six entrepreneurs presented their ideas at the Seattle Angel Conference on Wednesday afternoon in hot pursuit of one very big check.

And while each of the entrepreneurs offered compelling pitches to the crowd of more than 150, only one had the style and finesse to woo the judges. Glamhive, a two-year-old Seattle startup which rewards fashionistas with gift cards for sharing their favorite outfits online, took home the top prize and the $205,000 check Fashion is certainly moving online, and as one of the judges cleverly noted, the founders possess a “passion for fashion.” Co-founder Stephanie Sprangers started her talk by noting that 3,000 photos are shared every hour on Instagram with the hashtag Outfitoftheday.

That’s where Glamhive, which employs nine people and is looking to raise $1.2 million, steps in. “Through our platform, we enable people to take photos and connect them to products, and then product to retailers, so that every photo is shoppable,” she said.

Glamhive - The Fashionable Wife

Today I am excited to tell you about a really awesome fashion website + app! It is called Glamhive – think of it kind of like a shoppable Instagram. And I am sharing a little Q&A I did with Stephanie, co-founder of Glamhive! What is Glamhive? We describe Glamhive as a ‘shoppable’ Instagram. What can you find? Almost everything! People can shop by look or use our search to find products from their favorite retailers and brands. What will users find on GH that they won’t find anywhere else? Two big things: 1. all photos are shoppable – companies similar to GH are a hit and miss on this. 2. rewards – again, no other site or app offers rewards to the people who create content and people who shop. The truth is, anytime anyone hashtags a brand or gives a retailer a social media shout out, they are helping to drive awareness and sales for that brand.

How did Glamhive start? Glamhive is an idea that my co-founder Gisella Walter and I had.
