This was a great show. General Idea was one of my favorites last spring, as well.
The Native Son show was a hybrid runway/presentation. It went down at Chelsea Piers. I arrived early to shoot some back stage stuff. There was a moment after hair and makeup, where a handful of the models climbed through a window out onto the roof for a smoke. I followed them out. On the roof is where I snapped a few of my favorite images from this round of fashion week.
Betsey Johnson runway shows are notoriously raucous. This year was no exception. Betsey came out at the end and put on a show that rivaled the actual runway presentation. This was a fun show for me, since I was not sitting in on the riser with the rest of the photographers. Instead I was able to try to get a creative angle on the show. My favorite image that I came away with from this show, is the one of the expression on the adorable little girls’ faces, sitting on the front row.
