1:35 On The Street: Four Eyes
When the Auckland-based street-style fashion blog Four Eyes was born, Chin Tay – (one of four photographers) had no idea how to use a camera. It was four friends who had an undeniable love for fashion, and the blog was a way for them to capture the kind of ‘style(s)’ that they found inspiring.
