Does Street Fashion Monitor Photo Search focus on specific types of street styles?

Street Fashion Monitor Photo Search presents photographs portraying a cross section of styles ranging from the "street style" that offers directional cues to dressers representing the high street and high end of fashion.

Why "Strictly NO Posing"?

The vast majority of photographs capturing street styles on fashion blogs and trend forecasting web sites are set up and posed. Street Fashion Monitor Photo Search is the first to break this mould enabling the user to gain more situational information and accuracy and more creativity and fun when viewing results from searches.

The"Strictly NO Posing" ethos dictates that clothes, accessories and footwear look best when photographed unposed in real situations. As such many of the photographs as well as being unposed capture subjects in movement bringing life and flow to the garments:

To quote Jean Paul Gaultier - "Clothes are only interesting when they are on a body in motion"

Are there photographs of famous people as well as random every day people ?

Yes there are photographs of famous people.. Street Fashion Monitor Photo Search is all about photographs of random every day stylish people going about their business on the streets however if a famous person / celebrity is spotted and they look good style wise they will be shot as well ....... Candid of course !

Does Street Fashion Monitor Photo Search present images only from street locations?

"Street style" permeates into other off street locations where fashion, music and sport overlap and interact. Street Fashion Monitor Photo Search reflects this fusion with photographs of stylish dressers enjoying clubs, concerts, event parties, fashion shows and sporting occasions. The vast majority of these photographs are candid thus keeping it real in contrast to the mass photographic coverage of these events which is highly controlled and posed.
