On Wednesday the 18th of September 2013, the MimosaLiFE team re-initiated their Oeuvre Street Fashion Series at the Fresher’s Fair.  Despite the wet dripped Glaswegian  morning, the atmosphere around the Glasgow University campus was nothing sort of electric. Autumn is a season  that often celebrates  for shades of grey, charcoal and black  in fashion, however the individuals we encountered displayed bold and colourful tones in the individual fashion choices.  We’ll like to give a massive thank to all those that participated in our street fashion photo shoot. Enjoy the photos below.

Winter Wonderland [Oeuvre]

In the ‘coldest’ winter, we braved the below negative 1 wind and icy side walks of West End Glasgow for our final ‘Oeuvre ‘ street fashion  photo shoot of 2012.  It was without a doubt that Christmas was on the horizon as the  crowded streets of Byres road was filled with shoppers and some of the city’s most charming citizens.  We encountered individuals who displayed a great balance of taste and comfort in the heart of winter. Enjoy, share and be inspired.

West End Promenade [Oeuvre]

On Friday November 17th, a quiet afternoon in the West End of Glasgow. The busy streets of Byres Road were awfully silent, the city appeared to be hibernation.Despite the piercing cold and rain, we encountered brave souls in our journey along Byres Road, Great Western Road and the Hillhead area. These individuals were clearly advocates of style over colourless layers, timeless fashion over trends or fads. Enjoy, share and hopefully be inspired.

Forever Autumn [Oeuvre]

Autumn is the season where those sun kissed tans of summer are long gone and winter’s chill is on the horizon, however that never deters any fashionista from adapting and procuring autumn-ready layers that express an elegant and refreshing taste in style. In our travels around the Glasgow University campus, we encountered such individuals that demonstrated in the midst of this wet, melancholic and windy season  their taste in style and couture would not be compromised. Enjoy, Share & Be Inspired.

The Devil Is In The Details [Oeuvre]

Arguably, for many individuals fashion accessories – bags, jewelry, belts e.t.c are often an afterthought. However, the citizens in the Greater Glasgow Area that we came across in our travels make a strong case for accessories being the ultimate fashion statement. We came across an array of different pieces – tribal, elegant, eccentric and alternative which enhanced their outfits and style on that day. Enjoy, Share and Be Inspired!
