Band of Outsiders, in a little variation on the traditional “runway” approach to FW shows, decided instead to have a “presentation.” I have to admit, I really liked it. Instead of having that stuffy feeling where you are stuck in your seat for 20 minutes trying to scribble down notes/snap images, the presentation had a much more organic flow to it. The flow was a lot more natural. Observers were able to confer with one another without feeling like they were interrupting or missing something. From the point of view of a photographer, I have to say it was a lot less stressful than shooting a runway show. Instead of just blasting away on the shutter button for 2o minutes and sorting out the mess later, I was able to actually take my time and plan out my shots. On the flip side of that, there is really no excuse for getting a bad shot at setups like these. I hope that is becomes more common. Click through to Selectism and Highsnobiety for some commentary.
This was the second year of New York City’s Fashion Night out. Last year I was covering the Roca Wear Party. This year, Burton hired me to shoot their FNO party at the SoHo flagship store. It was a seriously good time. I love it so much when I’m having such a great time, that it doesn’t even feel like I’m working. Huge thanks again to the NYC Burton crew, MFA and Timbo.
I really enjoyed shooting this show. It was the Friday that 2010 NYC Fashion Week kicked off. Check out the details on Selectism.
