This is also an oldie from Paris but I couldn't resist myself to post it. I think Mr. Flaccavento it's all about timeless style, not trendy fashion.

Even though se has a very tough look she is one of the nicest persons I have met in New York. She was in her way to home after a shooting and she started posing for me like if it were a professional task. She is new in the city and is with NYC Models. I think she is gonna rock in the next Fashion Week.

Photography School, 8th Ave



I have been more busy than I thought I would be with photography school now, fortunately there are plenty of stylish people there so I decided to shoot a few.

On the guy: give me a pair of bright socks and camo and I'm done.
On the girl: Come on! She is fabulous.

I’m not sure how exactly I discovered street style blogs or websites but since I did back in 2005 I got hooked. I’m from an industrial city in Mexico’s northwest border where the weather reaches the 50C degrees in summer, so as fashion encounters on the street are not something usual, I used to spend hours on the web in order to satisfy my style hunger.

I studied Communication Science since I wanted to become a filmmaker (and back then that was the closer option in my hometown to produce audiovisual content) but a few years later I became more interested in studying film rather than produce it.

Nevertheless, while I watched Fellini, Allen or Scorsese’s films, nothing stopped me from buying my favorite fashion magazines and I must confess, I had a hard time focusing in Annie Hall script rather than in Diane Keaton’s character style. There was something in Demarchelier, Meisel and Testino’s photo spreads in Vogue that were as fullfiling to me as Cuarón, Van Sant or von Trier’s films. So during that time I also did my first fashion photography exercises on my photo courses at school.

When I graduated I quitted photography and started working in a newspaper as a web editor until I discovered that being behind a desk didn’t make me happy at all, so I decided to start out again.

Two years ago I did the most important decision in my life: To invest in photography equipment, and focus on photography, breathe it, feel it, work out a portfolio and move to NYC in 2010.

And here I am, living in Brooklyn, trying to make it in the toughest industry during recession and looking for stylish people and capturing them on the street.

8 years later I didn’t became a filmmaker, but I like to think that trough my pictures I’ll be telling you stories. I’m René Fragoso and this is my attempt to pay back to the style blogosphere all that I have gotten from you all of this years.

I hope you like it. Thanks for your visit.
