My feelings about this fashion month is so share. I really feel like the street-style is going down with the years, even if I am doing this for 5 seasons now ( Start in January 2016). I see less and less bloggers in the streets, days during fashion weeks are long. Photographers are waiting for hours, and sometimes we don’t see anyone / anything interesting to shoot.
Also an article cames out during this fashion month criticizing photographers shooting always the same girls in the streets. That’s true we are shooting for most of us the same girls, but this is not really our fault. Press, Magazines are buying top bloggers photos, because they are making the trends and they always have the best looks. I know sometimes girls are really fashion, looking amazing, but I still don’t shoot them because no one is interesting to buy this. I am talking for most of the photographers. Only a few as le 21eme (Adam) can only shoot ambiance, it’s more artistic and less commercial. He is doing a great job but this market is really small too small.
Anyway, when Aimee Song arrives to a show Aimee Song, a Californian blogger know for her Song of Style blog, she has over 4.8 Millions followers on Instagram, I am always shooting her, whatever she is wearing, because people wants to see what Aimee is wearing during fashion weeks.
But yeah this season I didn’t saw Aimee a lot of time, only 6 times for the whole fashion week, I probably miss some shows as well, but I used to see her more times before.
Hopefully every-times I’ve seen her she was always wearing a dope outfits, often really colorful, it’s good for the photos, it pop-up nicely and catch the eyes at the first look.
I’m in love the red coat, and the photos came out really well, the background was a bit dark and grey. When a blogger is wearing a colorful outfit, I am always looking for a background without colors. Street-style photographers don’t really choose the background when bloggers are coming to a show, but it’s still important to care about the background. 2 or 3 colors Max is better.
So I remember for this outfit that I didn’t want the yellow pillar on the background, but as a top blogger Aimee is attracting a lot of photographers, we were maybe 20 shooting her at this time so cannot really move when you find a small place to shoot, we are all close fitting each others, some are above, some are bellow behind, it’s should be so funny to see when you out of this circus!
So my favorites ones for this outfits are the first one and the last (Portraits), because we don’t see the blue jeans so it remove a color, I did crop it on purpose to have less colors. so for the full body photos, I am not a huge fan because we see too many colors, blue, red, white, black, yellow ( considering the black and white are a colors even if it’s not I know)
I also really like the outfits from Tibi (Yellow one, and the detail shot of the purple outfit), the details on these outfits are really amazing, afterward I should do more close up photos, the sleeves are so beautiful., love them.
And last things I would like to talk about is the two last outfits (purple). It was the same day in Paris, don’t remember the shows where she was attending to but I love the way she transformed a casual outfit to a chic outfit. Same bag, same jacket, but completely changing the vibes
switching the pants to a skirt, the Louis Vuitton sneakers to a Dior heels, remove the white shirt and wear nothing visible just closing with a belt. And Finally wearing a floral crowned and sunnies instead of a basic black sunglasses. She masters everything!!
Enjoy the pics, Eloan
