51% of the votes went to the Upper East Side and 49% to the Lower East Side. I’m surprised to see how close the vote came. I personally like the qualities of both. I like that fashion on the LES is very bold, edgy, and creative. I also like the classic and beautiful clothing and accessories found on the UES.
Thank you to the women who participated and to my wife Maria, who was a big help in selecting the outfits as we walked around town.
As with many cities around the world, neighborhoods in New York City vary drastically from each other. Uptown and Downtown are two different worlds. The most contrast, I’d say, is between the Lower East Side and the Upper East Side. Fashion is just one illustration of this contrast. Both are very hip in their own ways. What do you think? Vote now for your favorite.
Voting ends on 6/21

We had just finished the shoot with Ieva and had already exceeded our allotted time in the studio space (every additional 15 minutes increased the studio overtime fee). So, time was most definitely of the essence.
We started shooting at 6:10 and finished at 6:50. That’s 4 different looks in 40 minutes! We had to work fast, problem solve quickly, and shoot quickly. I’m very pleased with how well everything came together and plan to submit the story to various online and print magazines. I’ll keep you posted with how those submissions go.
