Alas, busy preparing for our own runway presentation, we couldn’t make it to the New York Fashion Week presentation for The Blonds, as everyone knows always one of the greatest shows on earth. However, we did send photog wonder kid Rashid Samuel, who took some really amazing shots for all of us to enjoy. Above are the designers for The Blonds, David & Phillipe Blond, taking a final strut around the runway.

We haven’t posted any photos by street photographer and friend to HighSnobette, Rashid Samuel, in a minute, but we could not pass on this one! If you can’t read it, the sign says “I”ll be your house husband. I cook, clean and I’m good in bed,” followed by his phone number. Women, how many of you have expressed the need for a “wife”? Well, here’s your big opportunity!!

Seriously though, I think like any great photo this one is a sign of the times. And on that note, I’m going to follow up with Rashid and see what the back story is. Stay tuned! See more of Samuel’s images here.

As big fans of street photography, we were so excited to discover the work of 18-year-old Rashid Samuel, who has been documenting the “mash-up” looks lately sported by New York City’s stylish teen population on his Tumblr, Versus & Co, for the past nine months. Check out our Q&A interview with him below, where he talks about photography and NYC street fashion, and see additional shots of his work after the flip.

HS: When and why did you start taking street photos?

RS: I started off doing videography as a hobby. I video taped events like Sweet 16s, parties and fashion shows.  I started taking pictures, catching people while they’re walking and stopping people last summer. Being out in Manhattan everyone has a different style and I just wanted to catch it. Now I do street photography for enjoyment. I notice there are other people doing it but no one is focusing as much on the 17-21 year-old age group.
