Photographer Tom Johnson recently partnered up with stylist Phoebe Haines for a project titled The Thirty Three. The team roamed the streets of London for five days, asking thirty three random strangers to put on haute couture (i.e. “high fashion”) clothing and pose for portraits.

The photograph above shows a boy named Pat wearing clothing by James Long.
