We wanted to walk around the city and take photos of people who have good fashions and post it with their fashion profiles on our website. We'd walk up to people who we thought had cool clothes, tell them how much we liked their outfits or whatever and ask to take their photograph along with asking a few little survey style questions and asking for an aliase to post their image with on the site.
Now, something like this could be a bit dangerous we don't want to offend or piss anyone off nor do we want to ruin their day or get our legs broken... so I've been asking around at various fashion related livejournals and on forums on the internet to see what the general census on the matter is... so if you guys wouldn't mind replying with your opinions on the matter, that'd be awesome! THANKS!
