Be on Stage with Us at the CFDA Awards

We are so honored to be receiving the CFDA Eugenia Sheppard Media Award and couldn’t have done it without you, our readers.


As a part of the ceremony, Garance and I are working on a video presentation and we would really love for you to be a part of it. We are asking our readers and fans to submit a short video where you tell us what our work means to you. Maybe you have a favorite photograph from my site or a post that meant a lot to you from Garance–whatever it is, we want to hear about it.


These don’t have to be Hollywood productions, they can be anything from a video recorded using a webcam to something you shoot with your cell phone. We would love to hear from all four corners of the globe. We are proud of our international following and want to hear not only from the fashion capitals but also from Australia, Africa, China and Canada. Feel free to record your video in English or your native language.


Here are a few guidelines and tips for recording the videos:


In Photo Booth on Mac

Open the Photo Booth application on your mac and select the film strip icon on the right. Click on the red camera to begin your recording. When finished, select the video and you will be able to send it via email.


On a digital camera

Switch your camera to the movie record function and film your video. Upload the file to your computer and attach it to an email.


On a cell phone

In your camera app, select record video/video camera and film your video. You can email the file directly from your phone.


The video should be:


  • In a QuickTime format (.mov, .mp4, .m4v, 3GPP, 3GPP2, AVI, DV)
  • No larger than 800×600 resolution.
  • We encourage you to use We Transfer or other file sharing services for sending the video files.
  • VIDEO MUST BE BETWEEN 30 SECONDS AND 1 MINUTE. We will not be able to use any footage that is over 1 minute.


Please send all video submissions to [email protected] by May 18, 2012. Please include contact information for follow up.


Please leave any questions in the comments of this post.


Thank you so much for all the support!


Scott & Garance

    A great initiative! For me, yours and Garance’s work are my daily style inspiration and influence my work as a young fashion entrepreneur every single day: from buying stock, finding new designers, to doing photoshoots and fashion films and writing my store’s blog, there’s hopefully a bit of Garance and a bit of Sartorialist in everything that we do!

    Congratulations for receiving this award! I love your work,your photos, especially because I get to know the world of fashion, I’m from Costa Rica and logically in my country never see fashion like new york or milan, but I still love it!

    I want to know if I can upload the video in Spanish???, and explain a little of what is your job to someone from a country so small!

    I won’t be submitting a video, but I wanted to share with you what your site means for me. I’m a PhD student – a scientist, a number-cruncher. Your photos, your site, reignite in me, time and again, a creative impulse devoid of data, but devoted to beauty, form, art, style. They remind me of the tremendous variety and great beauty of self-expression, that what we wear can make a profound first impression. Through your photos, particularly of “older” women (and men), I take solace in knowing that it will be – that it is – possible to age with both substance and grace. So, thank you!

    Congratulations to you both!
    I’m from Malaysia, and there isn’t much in terms of high fashion where I live, but I absolutely love this blog for all its creative ability to show me the beauty in everything. Now I watch elderly women go grocery shopping in floral pants from the 60′s and I wonder if they know how fashionable they are right now. There may not be much here in terms of fashion, but your photographs have taught me to truly recognise style.

    Congratulations!!!! Thank you so much for the beautiful work that you do and thank you for letting us share in it…It is a testament to your graciousness that you’ve invited us to “share the stage with you”….I did and sent the video. It was a really empowering (never-thought-i-would-do-that-) experience. My grandmother always tells me “Dress better than you feel…and you will feel better” Looking at the Sartorialist helps. And I love people’s comments and stories…thank you everyone, and Congratulations!!!!!

    You could certainly see your expertise within the work you write.
    The sector hopes for more passionate writers such as you who aren’t
    afraid to say how they believe. Always follow your heart.
