++on fashion and the sartorialist
… because it’s not longer current to assume that fashion only takes pause for the feminine types. Culture demands that people repsect their bodies as one of the greatest and most self-exposing art forms out there. It doesn’t matter who you are. Everyone, to some degree, cares about what they put on to represent themselves.
That’s why the Sartorilalist is a great website. Regular people caught in the middle of their days displaying their own unique style. The photography is great too. In fact, it couldn’t be said any better than the site author says in his site biography.
I started The Sartorialist simply to share photos of people that I saw on the streets of New York that I thought looked great. When I worked in the fashion industry (15 years), I always felt that there was a disconnect between what I was selling in the showroom and what I was seeing real people (really cool people) wearing in real life.
Just wanted to share that.
