What do a dentist, a marketing professional, a graphic designer and a retail manager have in common?
They form the group that is Foureyes, a group of fashion-savvy Kiwi guys who have now been searching out the best dressed people the street and posting creative photos of them on their blog eyeseyeseyeseyes.co.nz for a year.
Their blog follows a stream of street style blogs around the world like street photography pioneer Bill Cunningham’s New York Times blog, Scott Schuman’s The Sartorialist, London’s The Style Scout and many others from around the world.
In the last 12 months Foureyes has accumulated more than 2000 Facebook likes and 444 twitter followers.
Dentist Chin Tay, marketing professional Alex Blanco, graphic designer Danny Simmons and retail manager Mino Kim met at a party last year and found they were all interested in fashion and photography.
“The blog started as a way of documenting and expressing things we see on the street that we like,” the group told 3 News.
Since then, they have made more than 400 blog posts and taken many photos, some of them overseas.
Whenever anyone in the group travels they take their cameras, so photos of street style in Spain, Italy, France, the US and Asia feature on the site.
But they are not the only New Zealand street style blog, others include Street and City Photos by Wallace Chapman and Auckland Street Style.
The Foureyes team has now started a sister blog called Foureyeson where the guys share their thoughts on things other than fashion, like food and travel.
The guys say they love the project and are excited about the future of it.
They have already collaborated with people as part of marketing campaigns for Kim Crawford Wines and New Zealand Fashion Week.
As photographers they have been invited to take fashion shots of designer collections such as Gorman.
However they are not sure what the future holds, but are already finding it difficult juggling the site and their full time jobs.
“Our number one problem is not having enough hours in the day but we are keen to get involved in whatever comes our way.”
