Street style: more photographers than the stylish

Fashion weeks have become so chaotic recently with so many new photogs. When I first started doing fashion weeks three or four years ago, it was pretty much just the Japanese, Bill Cunningham, Sartorialist, Jak&Jil, Facehunter, me, and a couple of others. It was fun, leisurely, and a lot more civilized. You had time to build somewhat of a rapport with the subjects.

These days, though, “throw in a ton of new bloggers, clueless aggressive paparazzi assholes who even more clueless magazines hire, and random modelizer dudes, and the scene is more like a rugby scrum. It’s a bit discouraging.”

He was 5 when his teacher wrote on his report card “Daniel can’t sit still.” Taking it as a compliment, he’s been on the go ever since. Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views. He is one of’s co-founders.
