You may have noticed a nice new sidebar on the left there. It’s got some picture of a well-dressed lady or chap, and will continue to do so as I find fashionably dressed people around the world. Below, you can see all the Street Styles photos in slide-show mode, as well as an image list […]

About a month ago I had the pleasure of being invited to ESMOD’s graduation event for their Masters in Sustainable Fashion class.

Students went as far as to actually work with businesses, and […]

And now for something completely different: Jeans. Raw denim, to be specific. A worn pair of Pure Blue Japan xx-007 blue-weft slubby-denim jeans. Size 30. Why post a photo set of jeans, you ask? Well, apart from them technically being ‘fashion’, there is actually a surprisingly large culture of ‘denim-heads’. These people buy raw (dark, […]
