Native Son NYFW Sept. 2011

2011-shotbyjake.com-0693bw

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 NYFW Sepetember 2011

2011-shotbyjake.com-0336

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.
