F.A.B. on Wall Street: Polyvore raises $14 Million from DAG Ventures, Goldman Sachs and Others

You guys have to know about Polyvore!  If not, we are going to have to work on increasing your F.A.B Index (TM).  Well, Polyvore is an online community of fashionistas.  Users can pull pieces that they like from various online retailers to create personalized collages.  Polyvore lets designers know how many and which of their pieces are used in sets, and how the users style them with other pieces.

I love going to Polyvore to look at how other users pair things together and to help style an outfit for a special weekend outing.  It’s a really useful program!  Below is a set created using Calvin Klein pieces.

This recent round of funding, of $14 Million, was led by DAG Ventures, with participation from Goldman Sachs, Vivi Nevo, Benchmark Capital, and Matrix Partners.  The funding will be used to develop their product offering and hire additional engineering talent.

They also just announced “Polyvore Live,” which will showcase the collections of four up-and-coming designers.  Stay tuned for more innovation from this fabulous company!
