Fringe is officially in! Few fabric trims are as instantly dramatic. I love to photograph materials like raffia, and the way fringe follows the movement of the body.
I wrote a blog post last month about the trend, inspired by a street-style photograph I’d taken earlier in New York. Sure enough, fringe has been spotted everywhere (and on everyone!) at fashion week this season.
Funny how trends work, isn’t it? If you really want to see what’s happening in fashion today, it often starts on the sidewalk.
When I saw Jey of My Uber Life walking into Milk Studios I thought to myself, “now this is how you roll up to fashion week.”
Rick Owens sneakers, a crisp white shirt with directional flair, and black nail polish. I wish more men had style game like Jey…
EDIT: Big thanks to Jenni of I SPY DIY for identifying the uber-stylish man above as Jey from My Uber Life!
When I first started my blog four years ago I dreamed about the day I could photograph Anna Dello Russo. 2010 seems so long ago now! I’ve photographed Anna at every New York fashion week since my first trip to the collections. Four years later she’s still rocking the playfully extravagant outfits that first put her on the street-style map.
I certainly enjoy photographing Anna in her trademark statement looks. But it’s honestly her open-hearted embrace of the pure joy of dressing up that I find most intriguing. She’s not afraid to play on the edge with directional pieces and wears what she loves.
And isn’t creating a sense of personal style (and having fun doing it) what great fashion is all about?
