Aiden Grimshaw went AWOL from the celebrity circuit after X Factor, until being snapped up by RCA Records earlier this year.
We sent Eleni Mettyear, one of our favourite young Brighton photographers round the city’s men’s clothes shops.
If you work in a great second hand clothes emporium like To Be Worn Again it would be madness to buy your clothes in Primark.
Charlie is the manager of Liam Gallagher’s Pretty Green emporium, and the two share a love of the 60s.
With so many great independent fashion shops in Brighton it almost impossible to choose just six to pat on the back.
Brighton’s most stylish busker ever? Gotta be in the running, though we like the sea shanty bloke too.
Nicola shows us that what you wear can have both style and substance if you think more carefully about what you’re buying.
In all his sartorial splendour you’d think this guy was a rock star by day and an urban fashion super hero by night, ridding the world of drab and dreary clothing.
Few would be brave enough to clash stripes, leopard spots and tribal print in one outfit but Phoebe takes on the challenge.
It can be difficult to get away from the same trends and tribes, but Becky seems to have found the perfect antidote to blending in with the crowd.
Here’s some of the shots we took over summer of cool looking Brighton folk.
Telling a 23-year-old girl she looks like a drag queen usually isn’t too well received, but Ewa embraces it.
A fashion history student, due to graduate this summer, Jennifer isn’t afraid of combining the old and the new.
What a dreary winter. So thank god for Johana, a ray of sunshine, a girl not afraid to embrace a dash of colour.
Who needs print and colour to stand out on a bleak winter day when monochrome, done well, can look just as rebelliously chic?
For some people, vintage means anything that’s been worn before, but Jenny is drawn to mid-century clothes and fashion from another era.
Each Sunday in Tokyo teenagers swarm the streets of Harajuku, living their lives for the day as if it were an anime comic.
At 15 we never looked this cool. Edith manages to strike the right balance between authenticity and wearability like a pro.
We’ve decided – it’s the shirt that makes Karen’s outfit (and the cute boots, but let’s concentrate on the shirt a minute).
The sun came out this summer and we fell back in love with t-shirts. Matt Martin captured the best of Boomtown.
Scarlett, a 15-year-old we spotted, does grunge in the coolest way, with cutsie day-glo bright accessories and girlish touches.
It’s part tattoo parlour, part beauty salon, but what makes N&N exciting is what happens with that second N.
No-one wants to blend in with the crowd. Be sure to check out Brighton based label, PSA, for simplistic yet symbolic, limited edition designs.
Simplicity is understated. We don’t all need to wear bright colours and clashing prints to stand out from the crowd, as Francesca here demonstrates.
Sweet Lolita is not simply a fad, it is a style that takes time, dedication and costs a fair bit too.
BFW is back and it’s bigger and better than ever, rightfully cementing itself in the UK’s fashion calendar.
