Mr. Newton, The Movie – At NYFW

While shooting at New York Fashion Week last week, I was excited to be shadowed one day by a film and video crew from Gilt Groupe. They came along as I was shooting street style at morning shows at Lincoln Center (at Tory Burch and J. Crew)…and then later in the day shooting at Rodarte and Marc by Marc Jacobs in West Chelsea. It’s all part of my ongoing monthly series of street style-inspired flash sales at Gilt.com.
I love documentaries…and behind-the-scenes glimpses of interesting things – I’m sure many of you guys would agree. And while we all enjoy looking at street style photography, if you’ve never been to the shows (and perhaps even if you have) it’s a bit of a mystery as to exactly how these photos come about. Do I know these girls or are they strangers? Are they actually attending the shows or coming to them specifically to have their photo taken? Do they stop for me or are they “doing a runner”? How do you decide who to shoot? Our little video here should provide answers to at least a couple of these questions! If you’re intrigued and want to know more, you’ll have to come to the shows. Paris Fashion Week is next for me – I’m flying out to shoot that next Tuesday. Up next – lots more of my favorite street style looks from NYFW! xx Mr. Newton

Gilt-free shopping with Mr. Newton!

Hi everyone – I’m super excited to announce a new monthly street style photo series and sale that I’m collaborating on with Gilt Groupe! The first sale starts today at noon EDT and you can access it by clicking here. Each month I’ll be capturing photos of a different trend – worn by real girls, spotted on the street – with corresponding designer pieces offered for sale at up to 60% off retail! This month is all about one of my favorite trends of the moment – black-and-white. Remember, each sale lasts only 36 hours and you’ll need a Gilt membership to make purchases. I hope you guys like it! xo

(PS – there’s a brand-new interview with me today on Gilt’s “StyleFile” blog too! hehe)
