Street style is, hands down, one of the best parts of Fashion Week. You get to ogle the inspiring outfits of fashion stars and regular (albeit extremely stylish) people alike essentially getting a guide to wearing this season’s trends in the process. Street style photography began with the New York Times Style Section photographer Bill Cunningham. He is a legend in the arena and his camera has captured the essence of New York City and its evolving fashion for decades (we particularly love this documentary about him). The phenomenon continued to grow thanks to The Sartorialist’s Scott Schuman—getting your photo on his site was the ultimate nod of fashion approval. Now, there are hoards of street style photographers loitering outside show venues, but these shutterbugs stand out from the rest of the pack.
