Styleblaster is a slightly creepy social experiment “fills a need for live fashion information.” The website is a new kind of fashion blog that feeds a snapshot of every person exiting the Bedford Avenue subway station in the trendy Williamsburg neighborhood in NYC.
The idea is stemmed from the noticeable change in the neighborhood in the past 10-15 years: “To answer the changing times, we introduce Styleblaster, a realtime account of what people in Williamsburg are wearing. Unlike a typical streetstyle blog, Styleblaster documents all — the visiting fashion plates, the hipsters and have-nots, the native Polish and Italian proud who have for years called this neighborhood home. And above all — the dapper salarymen and businesswomen who stand to inherit the area.”
Why I’m Curious
Blogs and social media have opened a gateway for users to snap and share pictures of their daily looks.
