Read This: The Sartorialist by Scott Schuman

SARTORIAL: of or pertaining to clothing or style or manner of dress: sartorial splendor

Two things I love are awesome photography and people who can ‘dress’. No stylist needed, you just wake up put together a wonderful ensemble – that’s magic. It’s the essence of why I am a wardrobe stylist, to help people make that magic on their own. Scott Schuman started taking street fashion photos and before long he turned his hobby into a blog and then a book. Scott had already been a successful photographer before then, but this passion allowed him to be face-to face with stylish people – not just fashion industry insiders. (VISIT SCOTT’s BLOG)

I was very happy to find Scott’s book – in paperback – at This book (published in August 2009) is a must have for stylists, aspiring models, and photographers. Scott’s eye for ‘everyday’ fashion is awesome and his product could be used to aid people in learning how to embrace what they like about their personal style.

Scott Schuman just wanted to take photographs of people on the street who looked great. His now famous blog (‘the bellwether American site that turned photo blogging into an art form’ – “New York Times”) was an attempt to showcase the wonderful and varied sartorial tastes of real people – not only those of the fashion industry. The book is a beautiful anthology of Scott’s favourite shots from around the world. They include photographs of well-known fashion figures as well as those shots of the anonymous passerby whose imagination and taste delight the viewer. From the streets of Rio to Bejing, Stockholm to Milan, these are the people that have inspired Scott and in turn, inspired designers and people of all ages, wages and nationalities with an interest in fashion.
