No offense San Francisco, but I love Oakland. Every so often I hop on BART to visit friends and colleagues, ultimately thinking…damn, I want to live here. Just a few days ago, I brought an NY -> SF transplant to Oakland for the first time. He was taken aback, “This places oozes of style. People here are so damn fresh…”
A few months back at Oakland ‘s First Fridays/Art Murmur, I was fortunate enough to meet a new group of folks “documenting and featuring the style of creative people.” With a discerning eye, they scout for and highlight amazing backdrops, people, and moments with their photo shoots.
Part art project and part movement, they explain in their bio, “[w}ith our roots in Oakland, we are truly inspired by the style that exists here of authentic self-expression, diversity and creativity. We know that this perspective is of great value to the global conversation of fashion and beauty.”
Dress fresh Society attendees, Oak Street Style will be on the lookout for you!
