SCOTT SCHUMAN AND THE SARTORIALIST
Back when Scott was working in the fashion industry, he always felt that there was a disconnect between what he was selling in the showrooms and what he was seeing people wearing in real life. His only strategy when he started the Sartorialist blog was to to shoot stylish New York characters in a way that most designers seek when hunting for inspiration. Since he started his blog two years ago, he has garnered a tremendously loyal and devoted fan base as well as numerous press accolades. Today, the blog has close to 60.000 visits a day.
Prior to starting The Sartorialist, Scott worked in sales and marketing in the high-end women抯 fashion market such as Helmut Lang and Jean-Paul Gaultier. He eventually opened his own showroom specializing in sales and press for such young designers as Peter Som and James Coviello.
Since then his love of fashion and photography have merged into his widely read blog, as well as in his contributions for GQ and Style.com. Time Magazine recently selected him as one of the top 100 design influences in the world.
