Fashion can be an extension of who you are as a person. Beyond the trends and styles, you’ll find that clothes symbolize your identity, personal values, culture, and even national heritage. Fashion designer Pola Thomson, for example, emblazons her creations with virtuosity and enlightenment. Ever since she was a child growing up in Santiago, Chile, Thomson’s had a creative urge. At twelve years old, she requested a sewing machine and discovered her muse in fashion design. Now as an award-winning designer, she is sharing her talents with the world via refined wardrobe designs and jewelry.
