BROOKLYN - A new website showcasing the latest fashions in Williamsburg is creating some controversy.
Styleblasters’ new website photographs random people on the street without their consent to showcase fashion in the area. The photographs are then uploaded to their public website.
Some feel the project is fashion-forward, while others think the images are an invasion of privacy.
"I think it's crazy," says one resident. "I just got a coffee and now I'm walking to work and I can potentially being looked at by all these people while I have no idea who they are."
Others argue that Williamsburg has some of the best fashion around and photographing the people in the area is a good way to showcase it.
The creators of the website say they are maintaining the website strictly for fun and they make no money off of the site.
