The Sartorialist, also known as Scott Schuman, can be considered the godfather of street-style fashion blogging; despite his blog being a mere 7 years old, this photographic pioneer won the 2012 CFDA Media Award, an accolade generally awarded for a life-long achievement in journalism and media. Bringing the online world of street fashion closer together through international street trends, Schuman’s work has found great relevance in crossing over to mainstream fashion editorial and cultural acceptance. With an eclectic eye, Schuman’s acclaimed pieces of his work hang in permanent collections worldwide, including the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, marking him as a true artist. Taking a pause, Imagine Fashion gives you an exclusive glance into the fascinating mind of Shuman, opening up about creating a two-way dialogue through The Sartorialist, its relationship to daily life, his personal approach to photographing subjects, and his opinions as one of the most respected online cultural commentators.
