Double Denim

The most laid back kinda outfit anyone can throw together, the Double Denim look.

When I’m out shooting, I like to wear things that look great and comfortable. It’s got to have pockets so I can put my CF memory cards, comfy pair of sneakers and a light back pack to carry my camera gear. Did I tell you that I packed one pair of Lacoste sneakers to NY Fashion week, and came back with six pairs of shoes where four pairs were all sneakers? My white YSL pumps are definitely one of my favourite pairs as spotted here.

Behind the Scenes at NYFW

The New York street style experience has raised the bar where the New Yorkers aren’t afraid to experiment with mixing colour combinations, proportions, patterns, layering, textures and crazy custom-made outfits. This is what I adore about fashion. The ability to express yourself, and not succumb totally to designer wear. Having said that, there was some guy who dressed himself as the “Where’s Wally” character and walked amongst the crowd with his staff which was pretty funny stuff. I also saw another guy dressed himself in those Chinese red, white and blue sack material which was designed into the full suit. Gosh, they would do anything to be snapped up.

Besides all the outrageous outfits, I came across a lot of buyers, designers and celebrities like Paris and Nikki Hilton who turned up, to be mobbed by more than 50+ photographers and tourists wanting to have their picture taken with them, or more accurately doing a “selfie” with the celebrity.

Check out this video filmed on my Samsung Galazy 5 phone to get a sense of what it’s like being the Hilton sisters.

 “Move away, move away!”


Now over at the Milks Studio, a mob of photographers were keen to snap up the infamous street style legend and Japan Vogue Editor, Anna Dello Russo.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York Street Style Details 2014

As soon as Melbourne Spring Fashion Week 2014 was over, I packed my bags, my Nikon D4 camera & 85mm lens and flew 24hours over to New York for fashion week. New York Fashion Week was epic. Lincoln Centre and Milk Studios were crowded with fashionistas, style bloggers, street style photographers, models, celebrities and hustlers. Every street style photographer was on high alert, hunting down the next celebrity or model to shoot, sometimes yelling at each other to get out of the way, but most of the time we kept our cool.

Below is a sneaky peek of some of my favourite street style details with more to come!
