  • Brum Street Style Project - Becky

  • Meet Becky, a petite girl but with bags of personality, whom we photographed for our Brum Street Style Project on Saturday. I loved her sweet Americana look punked up with carefree pastel pink hair, wrist bands and a huge earring - an epitomy of teenager aesthetic! Becky is wearing a cotton shirt fr[...]
  • Brum Street Style Project - Loe

  • Few men can wear a white-grey check hat, combining it with a brown suit, subtle striped shades of brown T-shirt and a metal chain, with conviction! Loe, Ndukwe's business partner from Nigeria, could. With this nod to the autumn check pattern/monochrome trend he became a right candidate for our Brum [...]
  • Brum Street Style Project - Ndukwe

  • The distinctive bubble-wrap facade of the Birmingham Selfridges store caught my attention immediately after we moved. I photographed it on its own right after Victorian Square and, once we started our Brum Street Style Project , I often urged John to take some street style pictures there. So last Sa[...]
  • Brum Street Style Project - Lily

  • In my 20s when I was a student I had this great voluminous camel wrap coat that was very cosy in cold weather but a pain to dry-clean. In my 30s I wore a chic fitted single-breasted three-quarter length camel coat. When I just turned 40 (I am kinda giving my age away...) I had a belted version with [...]
  • Brum Street Style Project - Jatte

  • As much as I love colour, I also like the grey on grey trend for the autumn 2013. Matte and shiny, gunmetal and smoking grey, charcoal and slate - all shades of grey made their way to the runways and into the shops this season, forming a basis for a strong and crisp business look. So when I saw Jatt[...]
  • Brum Street Style Project - Steve

  • We chose the Library of Birmingham as a location for our yesterday's Brum Street Style Project hunt. I liked  the colours, textures, and the clean urban/graphic feel of the library ground floor facade - its huge reflective glass panels, revolving doors, metallic bicycle stands. I also hoped that wit[...]
  • Brum Street Style Project - Jordie and Mark

  • It was John that scouted Jordie and Mark for our Brum Street Style project outside Bullring - while I was figuring out how to photograph them quickly in low evening sun without getting in the way of gazillions of shoppers who kept going in and out of the shopping centre. Our attention was caught [...]
  • Brum Street Style Project - Tom and Emma

  • Tom and Emma caught our eye as they were strolling  down New Street. All their clothes are from Blue Banana, a shop that used to be in the Pallasades, but closed due to the re-construction. Blue Banana's Facebook page says that they are re-opening mid-September on New Street opposite Tesco Metro. [...]
  • Brum Street Style Project - Lisa

  • I photographed Lisa yesterday - this was our first 'catch' for the Brum Street Style Project. I loved her bright red hair and hat, and her little dress from Covent Garden. John noticed her cool shoes from Irregular Choice in London. Some more photos of Lisa     [...]
  • Announcing Birmingham Street Style Project

  • Announcing Birmingham Street Style Project - to capture awesome photographs of people with great personal style and taste encountered on the streets of Birmingham. While there are some great street blogs around, many of them suffer from the same straight head on approach, quite repetitive and n[...]
