"My style is a mix of everything -- however I'm feeling that day I suppose. This outfit belongs to my mom. I kinda just pick things up and make them work with whatever I find in stores."

"I would describe my style as a Muslim trying to get by in 2013. I'm not inspired by anyone in particular, but I like a certain genre -- I like things that are flowy and elegant that still cover me."

Masta Myst: "Fox on the Box"

I've met many people on my quest to capture street style, but none stand out more than Masta Myst -- an incredibly charismatic and hugely energetic bicycle courier.

As you can imagine, he barrelled down the Annex streets like a rocket, and it was quite the task to catch up with him in our car, but I successfully grabbed his attention after practically throwing myself in the path of his bike.

As I was photographing him, his magnetic personality and bright ensemble also caught the attention of several passerbys -- one of whom was a little girl who demanded that her mother take their picture together.

"I describe my style like 80's Village People. In the street, fox on the box, and renaissance-type shit. I'm inspired by Victor Willis and Ray Simpson -- both men played the cop in the band. The hottest cop on the disco scene! People say that I'm a dancing machine!"

Murielle: Classy in Black

"My style is simple, classy and I love black with a pop of colour. I admire Vanessa Hudgens because she's dark, mysterious and fun, and Rachel Bilson because she's so classy and very pretty."

"I would describe my style as a London spring/fall mix. I like black, but I also like a lot of florals. I'm inspired by a lot of tattoo artists and I love pattern on pattern."

Matt & Kathryn

"I pretty much wear black everyday."

"I'm an individual amongst others. People call me ethereal. If you really knew me, you'd understand why."

Before I left, Kathryn reminded me that I previously shot her street style last summer.

Julia: "High Impact"

"My style statement is high impact. I take big bites out of fashion. I don't wait into trends -- I jump into them. I love high impact pieces and I wear them everyday. I don't save them for special occasions. There are a few people who inspire me -- I love Cate Blanchett, Tilda Swinton and the 15 year old in me has to say Gwen Stefani."

Julia is the fashion and beauty director for Canadian Living.

Erik: "I Gotta Embrace the Whole White Guy Thing"

"I kinda just go for whatever I think will work with whatever. My main inspirations are 50's black turtlenecks, velvet underground, Lou Reed, Beetles, and old-school rock 'n' roll. I also have an appreciation for musicians who mix masculinity with femininity in their style."

Brian & Isabel

"My style tries to balance work and park appropriate. For the summer that means slightly oversized shirts, and slim, cropped pants paired with black oxfords or tan brogues."

"I don't really know that much about fashion, but I like clean lines and simple patterns -- nothing too ornate. My parents are from Hong Kong, so I get to travel there pretty often and shop. I got this blouse from there."

Kevin's Street Etiquette

"My style is usually pretty buttoned up, but we're going to a Black Rebel Motorcycle Club concert after dinner -- so this is my rock 'n' roll look."

"My grandmother's love for 1920's Shanghai fashion is sometimes a place of inspiration for me -- but not today. She had very refined tastes."

I previously shot Lianne's street style last summer.

Monday, May 13, 2013


"My style is really British inspired. I work for Topshop and Topman so my fashion tends to stick with those brands."

"My style is simple, professional and classic. Actress Diane Kruger inspires my style because she looks amazing and gets it every time."

"I buy all secondhand and I only wear all natural fabrics like silk, cotton and wool. Tilda Swinton in I Am Love inspires me with her wardrobe designed by Jil Sander."
