Chilean born, NYC based, fashion and accessories designer Pola Thomson likes her woman powerful and feminine, sexy yet comfortable. She designs for a woman secure enough to know that sex appeal comes from within and that her real essence comes from confidence. This woman understands that the clothes she chooses to wear simply accent this innate necessity and that this is something that can not be bought, it is earned, it is inherent and it is of the utmost importance.
Thomson’s collections, therefore, reflect this elegance and refined grace through their effortless wearability, their simple silhouette and clean textiles. She is an alumni of both Central Saint Martins College of Arts & Design in London and Parsons The New School of Design in New York and her attention to craftsmanship and assumed responsibility towards sustainable manufacturing and production clearly reflect what she learned at these prodigious establishments.
Although the Pola Thomson brand is quite young, having debuted in 2010, she has had quite a lot of success in South America: presented in Encuentro de Moda Independiente, Hecho en Chile y +, Raíz Diseño, Pasarela Santiago , FWP (Fashion Week Panamá) in Panama City, her debut was honored as “Best Collection” by international press, Harper’s Bazaar México and Marie Claire Latin America.
In 2011 she was awarded with an invitation to show her SS’12 collection at the renowned tradeshow for new talents “Who’s Next & Première Classe” in Paris, France, where she won the “Femme” category and was invited again in January 2012 to exhibit her FW’12 collection. Chile’s, “El Mercurio,” one of the most important newspapers, pinned Thomson as one of one hundred young national leaders of the year. Her designs have been featured and celebrated by diverse medias from Chile, Panama, Mexico, Spain, Germany, Japan, Hungary and the U.K. to name a few.
