Photography & Words by Swabreen Bakr
Scott Schuman aka The Sartorialist (along with his girlfriend Garance Doré ) stopped by in Philadelphia for a private Q&A with Ouigi Theodore of The Brooklyn Circus as part of his book tour. He was in town for a public book signing for Closer at The Barnes Foundation, and a few members of the media were invited to attend this candid Q&A session.
Closer explores themes that viewers of Schuman’s website have come to love, style and fashion, however it also explores themes that Schuman says he feels are, “getting closer to what I wanted to do originally in terms of mixing fashion, street and kind of cultural shots.”
Below is a transcript from the very enlightening Q&A, Schuman talks about his process as a photographer, his inspirations and how to maintain a profitable blog.
Polka dots are kind of a big deal this season, Kate Spade has a fun social media campaign going on around it called #ArtOfTheDot, as dots feature heavily in their current collection. This fall jeans are making a statement with patterns, textures and cool tuxedo inspired detailing.
