Fashion month has officially arrived!

I can hardly believe that we are officially in the month of September.  It’s always so bittersweet that while summer comes to an unfortunate end, it marks the the roll out to the Spring/Summer 2014 fashion week shows.  Fashion month gets its start in New York for the first week, then carries into London, next up is Milan and rounding out fashion month with a strong finish is Paris.

As I’m prepping for New York Fashion Week I can’t help but draw some creative inspiration from the fashion industry’s most stimulating and diverse resource: street style.  Two of my favorite street style photographers that are NYFW staples and just so happen to be fellow Chicago bloggers are Amy Creyer of Chicago Street Style and Emma Arnold of Tres Awesome.

Impeccable taste and a signature style are hard to capture in one photo but they do it flawlessly.  So what better way to get ready for the upcoming whirlwind of beautiful fashions to come then with a look back at some of the stunning inspirations that happened.  I’ve rounded up my Top 10 snaps from NYFW’s Fall/Winter 2014 and they are from these two incredible lenses.

#CSMTravels: Hong Kong Street Style Fashion

Since my first trip to Hong Kong back in October of 2011 I’ve been enthralled by the vibrant and unique self expression of it’s residents.   Hong Kong street style fashion has a very distinct and indescribable fashion aesthetic that could never be fully described with words.  Their fun usage of prints, fabrics, and silhouettes is not only fashion forward but epitomize CSM’s fashion mantra, “Using fashion as armour to walk life’s runway…”

It’s literally taken me 2 years to gain the courage to test out my very limited photography skills and ever since I joined, ‘Team i-Phone’ I’ve transitioned into a self proclaimed i-Phone-ographer.  While I don’t have any plans of transitioning into a street style i-Phone-ographer any day soon, it was definitely such a thrill to move from in front of the camera to behind it.

Check out my Hong Kong street style snaps:
