It's rare in life to be recognized for just being yourself and doing what you love. Stylelikeu not only reveres the individual, it documents their most intimate feelings about lifestyle and fashion. A groundbreaking site, it is dedicated to realizing and celebrating the inspiration in people with exemplary, singular style. I am very honored and excited to be featured in their first-ever book that comes out on Tuesday. Get your copy of Stylelikeu now on Amazon!
"Stylelikeu, created by mother-daughter team Elisa Goodkind and Lily Mandelbaum, goes way beyond the now ubiquitous and static poses of street-fashion bloggers, The Sartorialist, Face Hunter, and all the rest, and instead, brings us into the homes—and more importantly the closets—of the most stylish people on the streets of New York, Los Angeles, London, and more. Their first book, published by powerHouse Books, is now available through Amazon.
Not interested in celebrities and the stylists who dress them, Elisa and Lily have an uncanny knack for finding and gaining the trust of people who march to the beat of their own, very chic, drummer. Often spending up to three hours with the most daring and original dressers they can find, Stylelikeu photographs each fashionable person in several different looks of the subject’s choosing.
To probe deeper into each subject’s personal style, they conduct intimate interviews on their ambitions, influences, and dreams, making each portrait so much more than yet another street photograph. From the most personal pieces in their subjects’ wardrobes, to the favorite books on their shelves, to the most precious objects in their houses, Stylelikeu goes far beyond mere appearances to showcase how creativity is fostered and manifested by living in the most stylish way of all: true to oneself.
Trumpeted in the press for Elisa and Lily’s departure from the top-down nature of mass-market fashion, where the editors of popular fashion magazines tell consumers what is stylish, Stylelikeu represents the vanguard of a new, DIY, fashion-media paradigm. It is a bold and inspirational experiment, documenting fashion at its source—the individual."
