A glimpse behind the scenes of what goes on during a runway show. The casting calls, fittings, hair and make up, waiting, waiting, and more waiting. You’ve really have to enjoy the whole process to be able to sit through the slow parts. To me, it’s worth it. I love the images that appear. I love the vibe, the music, the excitement. It is, after all, a Fashion Runway Show!
This is just a taste. I will continue to serve up more ‘behind the scenes’ as time goes by. PH
Wandering down Claude Lane the other day, I met this fine young man taking a break from his dailies as a chef at Gitane.
He was so reclusive, he almost disappeared into the background. ‘Pardon me, but may I take your photo for the VSR? What’s that? It’s a style blog, etc…
Yes. Are you a chef at Gitane? Yes. I like your solid black sleeve work. Was that intentional? Yes.
A man of few words. Seems appropriate really.
One of my main desires of this blog is to meet and spotlight artists/creatives while I roam the streets in search of style and fashion. Seeking out random conversations under ‘The Lamppost’, I am truly amazed at what reveals itself to me and I love every minute of it!
It is my great pleasure to introduce you to Maurizio Ceccarelli.
Signor Ceccarelli embodies this experience to a laser point. I saw his look, I saw the orange background and I knew this was going to be good.
Little did I know what was in store for me. This man’s art is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! He showed me a few pics on his iPad, but his website is where the treasures lie.
Go there now. Stay there forever.
Basquiat, Bearden, and Warhol have saved a well earned seat for you at the end of your days. Bravo!
NYFW is almost upon us and we are waiting in anticipation to see what’s coming down the runway and hitting the streets this year!
Alas, I shall be sitting this one out. I will have to content myself with being a wallflower from afar!
Good luck everyone and have a great week!
First I saw the bag, then I saw him and his friend. Then I saw the juxtaposition of “men’s vs women’s” and I realized that I hardly noticed at all!
It’s not an issue of being in gender bending SF, nor is it a metro sexual disposition towards style and fashion. It is simply aesthetics. Plain and simple.
All I see is STYLE.
On the move and stopping for no one. By the looks of those bags, I imagine there is more shopping to do!
At least, I hope so…

So easy. So blue. Perfection!
Another classic Polo moment by Ralph Lauren.
I saw this stylish young man and his awesome cool frames at a WearTechCon event held at California College of the Arts‘ SF campus.
The future of style and fashion is definitely leaning towards wearable tech. Besides, we all need cool frames on our face!
Ginger Side of Life
I met Chelsea and Jess recently at Banana Republic’s ‘Room 7′ launch. They immediately stood out from the crowd. As you can see, they compliment each perfectly in color, style and form. They have obviously done this before. Check out their blog – Ginger Side of Life. It’s really cool! Clean and simple, no fuss no muss. Straight to the point. How refreshing is that! I can’t wait to see more from these two beautiful ladies!
Truly, the Ginger Side of Life is the right side to be on!
