Ali King

by Eyal de Leeuw | 30.03.13

Meet Ali. An 83-year-old Turkish tailor who has been living in Germany for the past 44 years. Last August he met photographer Zoe Spawton on the streets of Berlin who decided to take a daily photo of the gentleman, who has 18 kids, and an impeccable sense of style.

Spawton started to document Ali’s fashion interpretations in the blog what Ali wore. “At first he thought it was funny” said Spawton to Spiegel Online “Now he is the one who gives me instructions and shows me where he would like to pose.”
