There really is nothing quite like proper reporting from backstage. Yes, out on the FROW (fashion speak for Front Row) is where most people want to be, and yes, the time, and the money, and the effort that goes into these shows is really for the performance, but behind the fourth wall—that’s where the real magic happens. That’s where the excitement is. That’s where Pat McGrath is busy painting people’s faces, and that’s where the models get suited and psyched up. That’s where the designers oversee their labors of love, and where this season, London fashion week favorite Charles Jeffrey Loverboy shed tears as he saw his best collection yet soar like a bird on the wind. And between seats, and interviews, and write-ups, and all the rest of the fabulous fashion month hustle, we make it backstage, Sony A7Rii in hand, and capture the moments that, at the heart of our industry, really matter.
