Watch a dizzying take on Paris Fashion Week through the lens of Toronto photographer Liam Goslett

Toronto Fashion Week doesn’t bring out the big street style names like Vogue Japan editor-at-large Anna Dello Russo or Nick Wooster, the men’s fashion director of Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman, so sometimes it’s fun to take a look at images shot outside the more glamorous Paris Fashion Week shows to see what outfits people are wearing. Twenty-year-old Toronto-based photographer Liam Goslett understands this need for street style voyeurism, so he stood outside this year’s spring/summer 2013 Paris shows, capturing a variety of looks and familiar faces (there’s an amazing trio in coordinated Thom Browne). The video is about five minutes long, and it’s got a jittery, stop-motion style, but once you get past the Blair Witch Project–like nausea, it’s an interesting take on the hustle and bustle of an international fashion week. Which of course means there’s a tremendous number of shots of glamorous people smoking.
