This weekend just gone marked the portrait exhibition '50 Faces of Individual Style'; a public pop-up in London's Soho Square, featuring 50 real people and their own personal style. The exhibition noted the end of #LFW, celebrating and bringing our attention to the unique style and individuality of Londoners – our very own street style captured by a lens! And, that lens, owned by renowned fashion photographer, Brendan Freeman, effortlessly captured 50 faces (at a one-a-day portraiture pop-up photographic studio at Westfield London) each a member of the public scouted for the shoot. And, as you will see, each sitter was asked to chose a word (or words) that they thought sum up their own individual style featured in the shots. I absolutely adore this collaboration of words and images that is the result – it's like a split second insight into the fashion and personality of each of the individuals – something that I love about the whole concept of street style.
Presenter and model, Zara Martin also made a cool appearance in one of the portraits (rocking some SERIOUS shearling and glossy sunglasses), and labelled herself as 'unpredictable.' Check out the Q&A with the model below...
