Scott Shuman is my hero… oh, and he’s also the world famous blogger known as The Sartorialist. He was a huge reason behind my decision to start The Jealous Curator. His blog is so simple, and so positive. He takes photos of people whose style catches his eye on the street, and points out what he loves about it. That’s it. Not one negative word, even though the fashion industry is known for that… much like the art world, if you see what I’m getting at.
I am completely inspired by him, and so, surprise surprise, I’m totally jealous of him too. Well, let me clarify. I am inspired by his story, his reasons for starting The Sartorialist, and his amazing taste in fabulous fashion from around the world. I’m only jealous of what a giant success he has become. Listen to this. In 2005 he left his job in the fashion industry to stay at home with his daughter, and he started this blog for his own interests/passions. He had no idea what it might lead to. Only a few years later he’s still doing it, but now has a huge and dedicated following, not to mention a monthly page in GQ, recurring guest blogs and videos for Style.com, and is front row at Fashion Week – every Fashion Week, from New York to Milan. See what I mean? How can you not be inspired… and just a little bit jealous?
