FASHION WEEK: Behind the Scenes

For the past few days I’ve been snapping street-style pics up at Bryant Park for Stylesight.com and I’ve come to one conclusion: Fashion Week is totally bizarre. It’s like this alternate universe, where $700 heels are the norm and everyone’s air-kissing everyone else. People have been surprisingly nice about letting me take their pictures, which is awesome/ kind of surprising. I guess everyone just has on their very best outfits and doesn’t mind showing them off on the internets, which makes my job easier! And speaking of making my job easier, I finally got my press credentials! So on Friday, after hanging out in the lobby of the tents BECAUSE I COULD, I snagged tickets to the Buckler show. I wasn’t able to get any decent shots of the clothes, but overall they were fine: Thom Browne-esque with a rock’n’roll flavor. I snagged some shots of the lobby and crowd, the behind-the-scenes action that will hopefully make you feel like you’re at Fashion Week with me!


When I took this, all I could think was “class -picture.” It’s amazing how much a fashion show can feel and look like a high school assembly, except here the cool kids sit in the front row.


I love the incredible mix of people Fashion Week brings out of the woodwork.


These are the folks you can thank for those thousands of images. And now I’m totally suffering from camera- envy.

When the show let out, I snapped a pic from the stairs. Prime people watching.


My favorite look of the night was this fine Southern gentleman, Mr. Cator Sparks. Cator is guest-blogging for Hint Magazine right now, so show him some love!
