Roller Girl

One of the growing fashion trends in Liverpool is this, the wearing of rollers in your hair. I’m an observant chap but I don’t think I saw this at all last year. I’m sure this thing has just appeared in the past few months. Combine this with the girls who wear pj’s and you’ve got some very unusual fashion trends in the city.

I took this photo as part of a project for a new photography group called the Fab Collective. Our site has just gone live and Saturday was our first time out. Street portraits was the name of the game. It was also a real test of my new 85mm which is really the business.

    Does this look get combined with previous fads of Reebok classics, pyjama bottoms, shell suits, or leatherette gloves? Or possibly all of the above? Liverpool “fashion” has always baffled me.

    I’ve yet to see a pj & roller combo but all the people on Flickr are on the watch for it.

    LOL…love the colors. I’ve seen the PJ’s as daywear, especially on college campuses, but not the roller look around here.

    Amazing sight, I have to say… Haven’t seen anything like this (yet) here in Amsterdam but who knows, good ‘ole Mersey Side is starting a new trend??

    BTW: tell us more about your 85mm! Did you go for the F 1.8 or did you dosh out all your money for the “magic” F1.4 (fan-tas-tic creamy bokeh)?
