Fashion month AW16 / SS16-17

With fashion month done and dusted and my mind still buzzing with the latest fashion trends, I thought I would share a few of my favourite shots from behind the scenes of the fashion capitals.

Though there is something about the runway that is utterly incredible and aspirational, behind the scenes, to me, is where the magic really happens. As the models frolic in their Italian leather boots, sporting high fashion 'dos and celebrity status names, the clothing is caught in a different light. The uptight facade of the fashion industry  fades away and we are invited into the hectic and not so perfect realm that is fashion week. As Kendall Jenner poses for a picture with style icon Karl Lagerfeld and stomachs full of butterflies laugh to set a few free, we see these icons as people just like you and me. Even from the pictures you can feel the lively & excited buzz in the air . Behind the scenes we see the clothing as if its worn by your everyday girl, not the perfect streamline images seen on the runway.

These images visually articulate how fashion helps make us feel. In these images the women look strong & happy, the very best version of themselves. Clothing is our chosen skin and when we feel good in what we are wearing, like these fashion personals, we to are truly our best version.
