Excuse the self indulgence but today is my birthday so I decided to post a picture of myself –more personal style, than street style but then I renamed this section NYC style so it should fit! And for the record my top/dress is by 5preview, boots are my Jeffrey Campbell for Nasty Gal and bag (below) is Stella McCartney.
It’s been about 4 years since I started StyleDefined NYC and since that beginning it has led to some amazing opportunities: from working with brands like Sebastian and Sony to being flown to Madrid for a party by J&B Whisky to total immersion in the insanity that is New York Fashion Week. Never did I imagine all the adventures I’d have because of it.
But what I appreciate even more are all the amazing people I’ve met. I moved back to NYC 4 years ago knowing a handful of people –literally– and now can go out any night and be guaranteed to run into friendly familiar faces. I don’t take this for granted and want to give a shout out to a few people who not only have enriched my life but have added to the richness of SDNYC. First and foremost: Niko Liakaris who I met when he mistook me for another photographer and is now a bestie. -and a writer for SDNYC! Sophia Lamar who used to intimidate the shit out of me but whom I adore and consider my personal style icon. And the duos of: Emily and Abigail aka the Wanderlust Girls and Richie Moo & Adrian who are always game to be part of any crazy project that comes to mind and I can rely on for great looks to photograph.
I know this post is a little long but fuck it: it’s my birthday and I wanted to express my gratitude to those who have helped make having this site so much fun. Lastly then I’d like to thank my Official Girlfriend, Karen, who has been a source of sanity behind the scene along with our brilliant pup Nasdaq. (Yes, as in the stock market!)
Last night was our party at Mr. H at the Mondrian Soho and plenty of friends came out in spite of the insane wind! I love B Hawk’s latest hairstyle (above) so had to feature it here. And below is a little gallery of a few more familiar faces. Since I was actually enjoying my party instead of shooting alot there aren’t as many as usual so my apologies if you don’t see your oh-so-cute-self below. Know I still love you! xx
Detail shot of his Moschino vest and tie. I’ll admit I wasn’t always as familiar with this label as I am with American labels but not only is Moschino great design, there is a sly sense of humor always at work and apparent here as well!
