My first time photographing at New York Fashion week, I was invited half way through the cycle (see ___). Over a year before that, I remember being fascinated by the feminine yet fluid forms of Nanushka blowing up before my eyes on the internet. It was the fashion presentation I was most aware and in awe of.
Life backstage was buzzy, angular and symbiotic. I was so afraid to get in anybody’s way, but everyone was so kind and understood that we were all creating simultaneously. Me, the makeup and hair artists, the designers, the musicians.
I was so lucky that the final fashion show I was invited to photograph the next year was that same brand I had fallen so hard for. To this day, it feels like fate. Here are the backstage images I was honored to take; stay tuned for a post on the show itself!
Nanushka, for me, will always spark a primal interest in my own craft. Their work makes me so excited to be a fashion photographer.
