Hoy Fashion

Whilst looking on the internet for local fashion designers/photographers in Liverpool I found a Hoyfashion.com. It really inspired me to go out n take my own pictures of people who caught my eye. The site also reminded me off stylespotter Scott Schuman,whome i've been really intrested in reading about since reading an interview with him in 'the new all issue' H&M magazine. I've taken some of my favorite photographs from the site and put them up on my blog because I feel they really inspire me.

I love this photograph, the awkward pose...the clothes,everything!!! Reminded me off the photograph taken by Scott Schuman on Sixth Avenue, in New York, called 'on the street'.

This is my favorite photograph, I really love the way the girls standing, like she's been caught off-guard yet she loks so good...like shes dressed for a photoshoot for vogue!

I don't like this photo at all, I think it looks too dull and she almost looks like shes dressed up as a pirate.

I think the girl in this photo looks really fragile, her long arms, and skinny tall frame really make the photograph work.

I love the way this girls looks, she looks so stylish yet so diffrent, I was going to say she looks individual but, what is individual?
