New York StreetStyle -- Babatunde Ajiboye
Walking through the streets of New York City, I noticed every other person in the hustle looking stylish. Not just the young, but also more middle-aged to older adults looking sharp in fur coats, three-piece-suits and briefcases that made statements all on their own.
Around Midtown, there lies a garment district specifically for those fashion lovers. A place to buy fabric, walk into boutiques or get a pair of pants hemmed all in the same day. The trendy area is also home of the famous fabric store Mood, where designers from the show Project Runway go to shop for their supplies.
On my way to check out the store, I came across New York fashion designer Babatunde Ajiboye, who already had a few shopping bags in hand. His look screamed Manhattan, sporting every accessory for men known in the book. Hat, scarf, bag and belt, which was admirable -- who says accessories are just for girls?
His colourful yet sophisticated style deemed to be photographed and shown for a special twist on New York StreetStyle. Taken on West 37th and 3rd, Ajiboye's look showcases how many New York men dress and accessorize.
After a quick photo in the rain, and Ajiboye's coffee still hot, the native of the area pointed me in directions that led to more shopping and many more photo opportunities.
