Winnipeg Free Press - PRINT EDITION

When you think about cities on the forefront of fashion, London and New York immediately come to mind. A fellow Free Press photographer and I recently had an opportunity to walk through those cities (me in New York and Ruth in London) and snap photos of fashionable people.

Approaching strangers on the streets and asking to take their photos was the awkward part, but many were gracious and flattered when stopped and told how great they looked. The trendsetters didn't mind sparing a few moments, before dashing off into the fast-paced rush of the streets. Although honoured, they didn't have long to stand still and get their photo taken; it seemed everyone was in a big hurry to get somewhere important.

Ruth and I walked many miles through the hubbub and tried to cover as much ground as we could each day. As we've come to know, the best way to capture a good StreetStyle photo is finding the parts of town where fashionable hang out -- lucky for us, in New York and London, that was everywhere.

Noticeably, the average person in both New York and London looked well put-together. The first thing that comes to mind in the morning for them is, "What am I going to wear today?" People in both cities are bold in what they wear; they aren't afraid to be noticed, captured or interviewed by photojournalists.

We were lucky enough to see the upcoming fashion trends first-hand by capturing photos of these metropolitan street styles and sharing them with our readers.
