CBC TV~ Our Toronto: Getting Spotted in Toronto

This is pretty exciting news for me, that I really wanted to share with everyone!

A couple weeks ago, Lian and I were asked to do an interview with CBC TV, for their new show ’Our Toronto’.

link here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XoAM5gW0HaI&list=PL0B9BA7C2907B508F&index=5

They covered our blog ‘Toronto Street Fashion.blogspot.ca’ , and the whole process of the Leng sisters collaboration.

For those of you who don’t know, my sister is a super smart and talented scientific nerd working on a skin printing device at UofT but also a really passionate photographer.

A couple year ago, Lian created Toronto Street Fashion Blog, as a way to photograph and learn about people in Toronto. Not only their style but their story: where they come from , what they do.

And on the sideline, I would sketch those people she would photograph, or others I see on the streets of Toronto.

So here is a peak in more detail at our process.

Hope you guys enjoy!

(oh! and for those of you who want to watch it on TV - i don’t have a TV- it’ll air today at 11am on CBC tv, and Monday again at 11am)

© Toronto Street Fashion Fall has finally come, and I have to say, I am really enjoying how people are embracing the new season. I also particularly find that men in Toronto have an amazing sense of style, keeping it classy and sophisticated, yet unpretentious. Unfortunately, about 80% of the men I approach on the street refuse to be photographed, mainly because they feel uncomfortable in front of a camera or simply have no interest in having their photo posted on the web, which is really a shame. I think I have to work on my approach ~ any suggestions are welcome ~ Luckily, Mackenzie was kind enough to let me photograph him. Soon after, his friend joined and I was delighted to see that she had a great sense of fashion as well!  It was also a great coincidence to find out that Mackenzie is an extremely talented fashion photographer. Definitely take a look at his impressive work @Mackenzie Duncan!
