Tommy Ton is one of the fashion world’s hottest image makers and street style photographers, and after a decade of capturing Fashion Month first for his former blog Jak & Jil, Style.Com and GQ.Com. – today the 31-year-old talented Canadian announced he is breaking away from publications to launch his own website, TommyTon.com, which officially went live on Wednesday.

Watch our exclusive behind the scenes film and see how Tommy Ton’s passionate eye and love of fashion has made him the most influential street style photographer working today. A self described “fashion paparazzi” Tommy documents the exotic trends, the colorful accessories and the stylish people at fashion month.

As Tommy explains the internet and the digital age has given people the chance to become a working professional overnight, “the fashion show is the new red carpet, everybody wants to be a part of this world, it’s not so exclusive anymore. With the whole boom of the internet and blogging and twitter, people have become so connected to each other – it’s a community that has grown so fast.”  

MODTV’s cameras captured Tommy in action from Milan to Paris fashion week and we spoke with some of his friends and fashion bloggers including Bryan Boy, Scott Schuman aka The Sartorialist, Garance Dore, fashion editor Anna Dello Russo and street style photographer Nam, StreetFSN.  What’s life of the hottest street style blogger really like?

Della Russo has teamed up with Milan’s Radio Deejay to create a short dance track, named Fashion Shower. Wearing a tie dye fringed mini dress and heeled lace-up boots, dello Russo can be seen singing a form of rap, accompanied by enthusiastic dance moves. The music video is now on YouTube.

“Fashion is always uncomfortable,” Anna sings in the video. “When you get comfortable, you never get the look. You need a fashion shower, you need a fashion shower.” Watch Anna’s fun and entertaining music video here now:

As Bryan Boy shared the news today on his blog

..”Many bloggers are now represented by different agencies—Scott Schuman is managed by Jed Root. Garance Dore is managed by Walter Schupfer Management. Susie Bubble has a literary agent and my gurls Rumi and Julia Frakes are both represented by Next Models. I’ve been approached by several agencies in the past but sometimes, you have to go with who you think is the right fit for you and what you want to do in the future“.

Bryan Boy will now be represented CAA, the talent agency that represents some of the most powerful people in the world of entertainment –

“…I’ve signed a contract last week with one of the world’s high-profile agencies, CAA. They represent major people like Oprah, Julia Roberts, Steven Spielberg, Tom Cruise, Zac Efron, Blake Lively. They also represent music stars like Christina Aguilera, Mariah, Justin Timberlake, Usher, among many, many, many others…”

Bryanboy’s rise to fame did not happen overnight. He started blogging seven years ago when he was just 17 from his parents home in Manila, Phillipines. The New York Post has named him one of the nine hottest internet celebrities, and News.Com.Au has called him “one of Fashion 2.0’s biggest superstars” and a “phenom in the fashion blogosphere”.

We congratulate Bryan Boy on this new exciting chapter in his career. Follow him on Twitter and read more about his fashion adventures on his blog Bryanboy.com.

One of the most influential fashion bloggers of our time Scott Schuman, aka, The Sartorialist reaches over 70,000 readers a day. This film (sponsored by Intel) gives a revealing look at Schuman’s view of fashion, photography and blogging. Schuman explains growing up he never dreamed about being a photographer, and that the way he shoots is very “instinctual”. He explains “the internet is the world shrinking.. and it’s given us a digital parkbench”.   This film was directed by Tyler Manson.
