February 11th ushered in the first day of New York fashion week, bringing together the greatest minds, influencers and style gurus alike to one of the biggest weeks in fashion. This season I had the chance to go behind the scenes photographing from backstage to the runway, and streetstyle in between, and seeing the magic that is fashion week come to life. From 70’s themed style to eclectic patterns and the classic modern look, this season was definitely one to rival all others, and I am super excited to share my experience with you all. I first off want to give a big thank you to everyone that was apart of this amazing experience, for the designers for sharing their creative genius with all of us and allowing me to get a glimpse of the work that goes into producing a successful show, to my fellow photographers for showing me the ropes and sharing their knowledge, and of course the models who grace the runways and bring the designers’ vision to life. My experiences behind the scenes have molded my perception and created an even deeper appreciation for fashion week. Here are some of my favorite looks that I photographed from all the shows that I was fortunate enough to attend. (All photos taken by me.)
This week I had the opportunity to photograph my good friend Valentina Robayo. Valentina has always had an effortless and great sense of style, ranging from eclectic to trendy but always one that was her own. The challenge this week was to capture images that complimented her outfit and personality and to deviate away from the cliched location spots for photographs. Which is how we found ourselves on Bleeker Street. After having lunch at By. Chloe, which was in the area we decided to just walk around get a feel for the locale and see what worked best. New York City is known for being overrun with taxi’s, and because I love taking risks to get that good shot, it was difficult trying not to get run down by a plethora of vehicles, pedestrians and/or yellow taxi’s. Several photographs later, we managed to get great photo’s that I’m excited to share with you all today. Check it out! Details on her outfit can be found below.
