Scott Schumann is The Sartorialist

15 Jan

The Sartorialist is a website, err…blog, that recieves over 70,000 unique vistiors per day and has been listed in Time Magazine as a Top 100 Design Influencer. The blog mainly posts photos, taken by it’s proprietor Scott Schumann, of everyday people on the streets of fashion forward cities like New York City, Paris, Milan and Tokyo. Shumann, a fashion industry alum, states,  “I thought I could shoot people on the street the way designers looked at people, and get and give inspiration to lots of people in the process. My only strategy when I began The Sartorialist was to try and shoot style in a way that I knew most designers hunted for inspiration. Rarely do they look at the whole outfit as a yes or no but they try and look for the abstract concepts of color, proportion, pattern mixing or mixed genres.” The following is a video created by Intel and provides a little more depth into who The Sartorialist is and of the job he does.
