The Top 10 Street Fashion Sydney for 2013..

Are lists in or out? I don't really know and I for one don't really care.. What I do know is that 2013 represented the first full calendar year that I spent shooting Street Fashion Sydney (SFS) with the truly fabulous Fujifilm X-Pro1; the first camera I have ever carried with me very very nearly everyday and  everywhere! As a direct result there were two big changes in the life of SFS from working with this camera equipment (and in my life as well); the number of posts increased and the actual size of a blog post shot up dramatically in terms of the number of images used to tell a story, along with an increase in image quality too. The stories I told here on SFS became more detailed and I believe more engaging for my readers and viewers and while retaining high search results for blog posts, the social sharing this year increased exponentially, confirming I think, the increase in quality and engagement. Now if I can just get you all to sign onto the new SFS Facebook Page as well.. then 2014 is sure to be looking like the best year ever!

So here they are, the top 10 of 2013; the absolutely unique point-of-view of what's happening in Sydney from emerging designers to individuals-on-the-street to major brand launches; all documented in fine detail with Lens and the Pen of Kent Johnson, published and presented on Street Fashion Sydney - please do-share and Enjoy!
