I've been wanted to start a little street-style section on JooJoo Azad for quite some time, but never got the opportunity to just walk around with a camera in my hand, exploring the city through its fashion. I do believe that clothing can be a pretty strong indicator of personality, and I think capturing a city this way is always so interesting. I'm lucky enough to finally live in a city where people can definitely dress themselves quite well (no offense, Oklahoma), and when local designer Anastasia Chatzka threw an opening party to celebrate her new pop-up store in Hyde Park, I knew that it would be a great place to start this section (while also supporting local designers)! I also wanted to get this section before going to Morocco in January, as I think it would be a great place to photograph streetstyle!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this little documentation of the opening of Anastasia Chatzka on 53rd and the people celebrating ~

If you haven't already, I encourage you to check out Anastasia's new website (here!) with all of her unique, quirky designs that really exude her personal style. I had a lovely time meeting so many interesting and beautiful people, bloggers, and designers! Hope we cross paths again!

Also, yay/nay on the streetsyle? Is this something that you'd like to see more of? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
