“GQ.com loves the Young King”
Its always an honor to be photographed by Tommy Ton for GQ.com. This was my fourth time being on the top men’s fashion site. This time I was next to a fellow blogger friend Steven of ostentationandstyle. I really like how we look cohesive but with two different type of styles. Check out more Street Style shots on GQ HERE. – K.R.T.
Now that I am paying more attention to women’s fashion, I couldn’t help but notice the amount of fur being worn during my time at Fashion Week. While some say “fashion is pain,” these women kept warm while looking cool in the harsh New York City weather. The most amazing thing about seeing this trend so often during my visit, was that it wasn’t overwhelming– as most trends can be. Each person expressed themselves individually, making fur look more like a wardrobe staple than a trend. - K.R.T.
Day two of New York Fashion week I focused more on the details of menswear. If you pay attention to each one of the shots I captured, you will see its not always about the entire ensemble but the little elements you bring fourth to make a complete outfit. Check out more Photos after the jump. – K.R.T.
This is the first time I ever put woman’s street style on K.R.T. Its hard not to take note of the many stylish women in attendance during this fashion packed week. Last season many more women stood out to me fashion wise. Ever since, I told myself I would focus more on women’s street style and introduce my audience to my view on women’s fashion from the eyes of a young King. Check out more pictures after the break. – K.R.T.
“Inspiration from stylish gentleman from all over the world”
My first day at NYFW, which is actually second day of fashion week, the streets were filled with men from all over displaying there style on the main stage in front of the Lincoln Center for Mercedes Benz Fashion week. Check out more photos of my first day shooting. - K.R.T.
“Its the little things”
I am honored to be displayed under the “Style Watch” section of the upcoming November issue of Ebony magazine. I was photographed by photographer Hannan Selah back in February during New York Fashion week. This feature really shows how little details can really pull together an ensemble. Although, it doesn’t show my face it has my name and my site for those who read the article or are curious about the man in the riding boots and House of Ra’oof medicine bag. Thanks again to Hannan and Ebony magazine for the feature. - K.R.T.
One goal that many people have is to be recognized in their craft and be noticed for their creativity. Since fashion is one of the many things I love and am dedicated to, it is an honor to be photographed by the world’s top men’s fashion magazine’s GQ. While this is not my first time on GQ, it is still thrilling to be included among so many stylish men, fashion professionals and to be in the consideration set of stylish gentlemen.
Attending NYFW, the difference between this season and last season is that people knew my name & brand rather then just my face. It also bought up thoughts of the GQ article on Worst Dressed Cities in America and Philadelphia being #6. I am not only representing myself when I travel but for all the stylish people that come from Philadelphia and all the men around the world who may not get the recognition they deserve. This street style photo is only the start for many collaborations, my fashion career and furthering the Kings Rule Together mission. - K.R.T.

“The best fashion show is definitely on the street” ~Bill Cunningham
One of the most common questions people ask me when I’m getting interviewed is “What inspires You”. I simply reply everyday people. I’m a risk taker in my style and I like to see others do the same with their style. Coming to New York fashion week with so many people from all over the world was really inspiring and it was great to see so many people take risks with their style. Check out some of the stylish people I captured at New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2012. – K.R.T.

The Kanas City, Missouri designer Jeremy Scott show at Milk Studios was the most interesting and outrageous out of all the shows I attended for New York fashion week. The room was filled with many playful outfits and the audience was treated to gifts as they took their seat. When many brands were leaning towards Native American themes for their line, Jeremy Scott decided to go western with an inspiration of cowboys & video games.
Cowhides and cactus prints is something new to me, but I liked it. While I may not wear most of these clothing the way they are displayed I do see the uniqueness in them. All in all the Jeremy Scott show opened up my mind to being more adventurous and having a good time in my style. – K.R.T.
Check out the pictures I took at Jeremy Scott S/S12 collection.

Chap jeans for men! I don’t know about that but it was interesting to see. What do you think?
“What you use to carry your belongings speaks volume”
I think men are starting to realize how important a bag is. The stereotype of it being considered a women’s accessory is being thrown out of the window. Having a bag to carry your everyday essentials is key, not only for keeping your pockets from bulging but to compliment your outfit with the silhouette of this functional accessory. – K.R.T.

Being that Diesel Black Gold is a clothing line I actually wear I was intrigued to see what their Spring/Summer 2012 collection would look like. At the Diesel Black Gold show metallics were in heavy use particularly in short-sleeve jackets and lamé pants. Neutral blue, khaki and blacks anchored the collection and each model showed us how to work a sandal into your spring/summer wardrobe. Check out the pictures I took of the Diesel Black Gold Spring/Summer 2012 show. – K.R.T.

“The man behind the lens”
During my NYFW journey I noticed an abundance of stylish photographers. It seems as though none of them overdid their style for fashion week and were more effortless and they stayed consistent throughout the days. With the focus away from being captured these street kings captured the essence of the street style during this fashion filled week. Check out a few of some of the stylish photographers of NYFW. – K.R.T.
Do you recognize any of these Photographers?

The southern designer Billy Reid had a amazing standing room-only presentation at Milk Studios for New York Fashion Week. Billy Reid has won both the CFDA/GQ Best New Menswear Designer in America award and the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund award which has increased his popularity from the last season. I personally like this collection because he seamlessly blends formal & casual Fall wear together. His easy and effortless collection was full essential wardrobe pieces like chino slacks, loose cardigans and lightweight blazers; all must-have staples for any King. - K.R.T.
