New Yorkers have a knack for getting dressed up for no reason at all, but you’d be hard-pressed to find as many chic and colorful people strutting the streets as were out and about for Fashion Week this weekend. Photographer  (the founder of and the lens behind  and ) caught plenty of these stylish people outside shows for Christopher John Rogers, Area, Jonathan Cohen, Sies Marjan, and Collina Strada this past weekend. Scroll down to see 22 fashion people — stylists, writers, influencers, and designers — explain how they decided what to wear to the shows.

“All my clothes are vintage except the Simone Rocha loafers. My style philosophy is wearing whatever makes you feel the most authentically you — vintage preferred! I’m inspired by tacky costume jewelry and ’80s jazzercise instructors.”

“Everything that I’m wearing here is vintage: a Susan Graver coat; a Nuevo Progreso, Mexico, tourist hoodie; an Old Navy button-down shirt; leather Tommy Hilfiger pants; and a pair of Air Jordan 1 Lows. If I could yank my thoughts and feelings into our physical space, this is exactly what it would look like.”

“I’m wearing Tibi coat and boots, Commando leggings, and a DeMellier bag. I believe in “less is more” Mid-century-modern interiors and the brutalist architecture inspire me.”

“I’m wearing a Topshop coat, SVNR slip dress, Supreme thermal, Urban Outfitters socks, Converse sequin sneakers, a feather Dauphinette purse, and a Bow & Drape beanie. The “love” necklace is from Patricia Field, one of my favorites! I think you should wear what you love and whatever makes you smile and feel true to yourself. I find inspiration in all kinds of places, from the runways to a bodega. But at the core of it is a blend of sparkly, sporty, and ethereal vibes.”

“I’m wearing a Sandy Liang coat, Marine Serre x Nike bodysuit, Demonia boots, Stephen Jones x Marc Jacobs hat, and a Telfar global mini-bag. I no longer wait for a special occasion to wear amazing pieces. Harajuku Japan inspires my style.”

“I’m wearing a vintage redone Amish dress, white tights with a homemade pink sock, and thrifted blue-jean heels. My style is “find your inner child.” I like mood swings, psych wards, flower fields, and friends.”

“I’m wearing a Zadig & Voltaire dress, boots, and bag for their show, and a Charlotte Simone coat. I believe more is more, and that you should wear what makes you happy! I’m always inspired by New York, the buildings, and the people. It always inspires me to be bold.”

“I’m wearing a Prada shirt, Nanushka shirt, vintage Prada skirt, Gucci tights, Bottega Veneta shoes, and Wandler bag. At the moment I think it’s important for us all to find new meaning in what ‘newness’ is. Buying vintage pieces can feel just as ‘new’ as a new-season item. I think we all have a responsibility to really consider how much we’re consuming in all areas of our lives, and the more you can be clever about that, the better.”

“I’m wearing a Telfar white bag and thrifted orange leather trench. Clothing doesn’t have to be expensive to be stylish. I love thrifting and matching things to give off a vibe. I love anything that has a shape or silhouette, or accentuates my body shape, especially cinched at the waist.”

“I’m wearing a Post-Imperial suit with a Staud bag, necklace from Johnny Nelson, and Sies Marjan shoes. I love how oversize and comfy the suit is. I don’t really believe in gendered clothing. Wear whatever looks good on you. Johnny is super dope and makes rings out of the faces of black visionaries. He gave me this Africa skull necklace, and it’s one of my favorite things to wear.”

“I’m wearing a denim duster by my friend Jessica Lache Fulks. My style has been incredibly influenced by my fiancé, Morgan Lee Cook. He showed me pretty much everything I know about fashion and art, and our mutual southern roots always find their way into what I wear.”

“I’m wearing a fake fur coat I got years ago in Paris, a Dries Van Noten collar, a Sies Marjan skirt, and Chanel boots. I like to wear what is comfortable and looks good. I’ve had the same style since I was a kid.”

“I’m wearing an Issey Miyake skirt, Cult Naked button-down, vintage leather blazer, Sunnei boots, and Telfar bag. I try to always wear clothes that feel true to who I am. I never want to feel like I’m trying too hard to be noticed. I get inspired by designers like Martine Rose, Demna Gvasalia, and Phoebe at old Celine.”

“I’m wearing a Ralph Lauren turtleneck (courtesy of Liana Satenstein), vintage pants and slip skirt, vintage Ferragamo kitten heels, a Post Malone Dickies jacket, vintage cardigan, vintage purse, and Rachel Comey earrings. I’d say my style is to basically just wear every pattern and color possible — it makes me feel joyful. My style is heavily indebted to Joanna Newsom, Harmony Korine, post-punk, and French New Wave films.”

“I’m wearing ASICS sneakers, Stance x Rihanna socks, Adidas leggings, with a thrifted dress, coat, and belt. I try to ignore what I see on Instagram as much as possible, and just do what feels comfortable and fun.”
