First Book Signing at Colette!

I am so excited to announce that my first book signing will be at Colette, in Paris this Saturday from 4:30 to 6:30 pm.

As someone who grew up always wanting to be a fashion designer it gives me a great amount of pleasure to have a window display of my work at Colette. Ok, it might not be the type of art that I thought I might create when I was younger. It goes to show that you should never give up the dream, but also don’t be so narrow in your vision as not to see where your real talents lie.

I am taking a long weekend/Labor Day, so new posts will be up starting next Monday or Tuesday.

Hope to see you at Colette!

    See you this Saturday then, hopefully!! If it's not too crowdy, which I'm afraid is a bit too optimistic from me…

    Dear Mr. Schuman:

    I just received this morning my copy of the deluxe edition of your book (No. 423 to be precise) and haven't really been able to put it down.

    I splurged on the hardcover version because I want it to last for future generations. Like the Seeberger Brothers book you reference in the enclosed note, my wish is that many years from now when my children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren take it down from the shelf, they too will get excited about style and be inspired to find their own.

    Oh my. How exciting. So excited that I'm in full-on gibbering fool mode. Just read that you're going to be signing in the menswear dept of Liberty, London, on the 21st September (the day I was due to leave England for a year in Seville). I had already postponed that due to Garance's exhibition and as though that wasn't reason enough, you're in Laaandan too! And on the same day…Could this be any more exciting? Clap clap clap. Wooop wooop. So excited.(did I say that already?)
    Ok, I'm off now to get a grip, and work out what to bloody wear.

    Thank you for all you do to share the creativity and beauty everyone possesses.

    You absolutely deserve the recognition and Colette couldn't be a better place to start. Excited to see in the comments you'll be in London too. I'll definitely be bringing my copy to Liberty for you to sign. Now if only I can get my hands on one of Garance's T shirts from around the corner as well, I'll be set.

    I love what you mention in the book, such as not looking at an outfit as thumbs up or down, but at the details you can take inspiration from.

    Enjoy your time off, if anyone deserves a few days off it's you (though I bet you take some fab pictures over the weekend anyway)

I wanted to reccommend the song Emipre State of Mind sung by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys. I like listening to music while i peruse your webiste. This song accompanies your images well.

    That's good advice. I wonder if you read your blog's comments. Your photographs evoke a particular satisfaction in me, and I'm probably not alone here, in that you're capturing a tone, a context, a world even, that many of us witness on city streets every day, but don't quite have the courage (even with all of our little devices) to confront and document.

    hi Scott
    I bought your softcover version yesterday… its lovely! Thank you for putting a book together. The size is perfect, as you said. No doubt it will sit on top of my other design and fashion books and be read very, very often. So inspiring, thank you!

    Congratulations. You're fairly much illustrating what I have believed in all my life.

    There are those whom invest much time and effort following the academic training and theory supposed to underpin their chosen field and never achieve much due perhaps to a lack of real passion in their discipline or simple exhaustion following academia .

    Then there are those who have a passion for something and regardless of academic training and qualifications launch themselves into their subject and succeed. This, much to the dismay and envy of those that have spent decades training and studying outdated and outmoded processes taught by those that never succeeded in the first place. It's a veritable Descent into the Maelstrom.

    It's the same around the world. We should all follow Nike's advice before it's too late and remorse sets in. You're a wake up call to us all and I am man enough to admit it. So I still win.

    Well done, Scott.

    would love to own the book, wonder when it will reach borders malaysia..

    anyway, just fell head over heels in love with this one picture by scott on his "The Sartorialist's Greatest Hits: Spring 2010" list and i have trying (so hard, u have no idea how hard it is, really) to trace back when the picture was posted here on this blog.

    it reminds me of alexis mabille's lace shirt that i adore so feaking much! :-)

    i would really love to read the comments and it would be really nice to see the picture in larger size.

    if anyone has any idea when the picture was posted, could please kindly post the link here? ..*thanks in advance

    I appreciate more than you know your posting today. My husband and I moved to NYC 14 months ago, and I am re-wetting my working feet in the fashion industry. As I polish up my portfolio and resume, take some classes and gain work experience, I've had some amazing highs and discouraging lows. The voice that tells me I'm too old (36!) or too busy (3 kids!) to reinvent myself I am trying very hard to ignore. So 'you should never give up the dream, but also don't be so narrow in your vision as not to see where your real talents lie.' meant a lot. THANK YOU.

    Dear Scott,
    I follow your blog on a daily basis since more than one year. Though, I never left a comment, nor I read the others because I love to let your shots speak for themselves and inspire me without any influence.
    This time I’ll make an exception because I’d like to thank you.
    I got your book delivered today and can’t stop flipping over it. It’s so inspiring!
    I already knew most of the photos but I’ve looked at each shot at least twice and each time I discover new details I didn’t notice the previous time.
    Checking your blog is always a pleasure, but having your photos all together in a pocket size is even better! The greatest gift you could give us. I only wish I was in Paris this weekend to get my copy signed.
    Congratulations for this challenge and, again, thank you very much.

    dear scott,
    even though i am unemployed and have very little money, i had to go out and buy your book today. i spent all afternoon looking carefully through it. after following your blog for two years, it was like looking at your photos for the first time. Even pictures i've seen on the blog before look so different in print, and even the details come alive in different ways. maybe more than fashion, i'm interested in people and i make up the lives of each person in my head. i love it and it was well worth my hard earned, meager savings. thank you.

    Congratulations! You deserve this, I'm pretty sure you worked hard for this moment so I wish you all the best! I wish I could go to that book signing! but I'm half way around the world so that can't happen. But really, I wish you all the best! It's very motivating to hear you telling us to never give up our dreams. Thank you!
