If there’s a fashion show within a 10-mile radius, you’re sure to find a bespectacled chap with silky shoulder length chestnut hair behind a camera in the vicinity, dodging traffic to capture that one perfect, couldn’t-plan-it-if-you-tried shot. Since 2007, Phil Oh has captured some of the most serendipitous fashion moments on the street, subsequently inventing his own unique style that is sought after the world over. Oh’s photographs of celebrities, models, designers and fashion industry titans (and yes, occasionally just style-savvy plebes) have been featured in prestigious publications such as Vogue. With his blog Street Peeper, Phil has been a trailblazer, spawning hundreds of thousands of fans, followers and creating a new platform for which to view fashion, style and culture.
Here, Phil Oh shares his thoughts on some of his most prized photographs.

“My nieces love Taylor Swift and when this photo ran on Vogue.com, my sister called and told me how much they loved it.”
“Anna Dello Russo is a style icon and there was a silly moment in Milan when all the photographers gathered around to snap her in her sequined Dolce & Gabbana dress and an awesome cherry headpiece. She decided to have a bit of fun and turn the tables on us.”
“I really love mixed prints, and I caught this moment at the Marni show in Milan of three ladies all wearing Marni prints from various seasons.”
“This one was a stroke of good timing. Celestine Cooney, a stylist in London had these balloons from a fashion show on a really windy day, and the colors looked so great with the Stella McCartney citrus print dress.”
“Errr, it’s Yoko Ono! And she’s looking right at me! And smiling!”
“How often do you see someone who manages to successfully match colors & prints in her outfit and her car?”
