ST Y LE the female perspective


E

very person has style, whether it is overt or subtle. It is something so simple but effects everyone in their everyday life. It is also something that often goes unnoticed. I frequently notice certain people on the streets when walking the city and I might do a double take just because I find that the way they look, the way they dress, seems interesting. There are many reasons why people dress differently, as everyone is unique in their own way. I was interested in seeing and talking to people of diverse geographical backgrounds and hearing their views on the topic. I wanted to document this in an at-a-glance type of book. These are real women living everyday lives on the streets of Philadelphia and New York, whether or not they are originally from there. You will not know these people in depth after


flipping through the following pages, but you will most likely get a good sense of personality, influence and, well, style. Syle is not necessarily just fashion, celebrity trends and frivolity, but a form of expression that, on a day to day basis, often does not get the credit it deserves.

Enjoy! Natalie Galante
