Check out the latest street style images

Click here to go to Asheville Street Style, a photographic record of Asheville’s unique and evolving DIY fashion. Most outfits (and their wearers) are scouted and shot in the streets of downtown Asheville, though this site also includes images from fashion shows, boutiques, concerts, parties and other happenings in and around Western North Carolina.

    Is “Asheville Street Style” simply what people – mostly young, it appears – are wearing “on the streets” (presumably of downtown, or are other areas – Biltmore Village? – included?)or are there some characteristics that give it “style?”

    I think you also have to be a mindless hipster drone, but I am waiting for confirmation on that.

  3. Piffy!

    I think those are the only people considered “fashionable” these days, shad.

    It takes very little effort to be better dressed than 95% of Asheville. Just because you got it all for cheap at the thrift store or out of the garbage doesn’t mean you should wear it all at the same time. Or that it should be the cover story. Please take the camera away from the fashion reporter.

    Can the editors of this new section please define “street” and “style” in this context?

    Asheville Observer: I’m not sure we need to define street style. It’s one of those “eye of the beholder” situations.

    The editors of this section are simply recording what we see — this isn’t Paris Fashion Week, so I don’t think a treatise on the sociocultural relevance of each outfit is necessary. With these photos, we’re mostly interested in offering readers something fun and entertaining.
