Welcome to Asheville Streetstyle!

You’ve landed at Asheville Streetstyle, a photographic record of Asheville’s unique and evolving DIY fashion. Most outfits (and their wearers) are scouted and shot in the streets of downtown Asheville, though this site also includes images from fashion shows, boutiques, concerts, parties and other happenings in and around Western North Carolina.

Asheville Streetstyle is a group effort of a number of Mountain Xpress staffers and freelancers. Photos are by Alli Marshall unless otherwise noted.

New commenting rules: No mean-spirited, derogatory, hurtful or off-topic comments. Personal attacks will not be tolerated on Asheville Streetstyle. Comments will be moderated differently on this blog than in other areas of Mountainx.com. Remember: Style is subjective and the models on this blog are not professional models, but men and women on the streets who are kind enough to let us take their photos. Please be respectful of them. Streetstyle is meant as a photographic record of the unique style seen on Asheville’s streets, not as a guide to fashion. Enjoy the photos, support your friends who appear on these pages, and be kind!
