Scene from a Fashion Show

Sketch of a shot I took at Carolina Herrera’s Fall 2011 collection.
Every look of her’s was phenomenal.  Feminine and beautiful.
And when she came out at the end to take her bow, she was just as charming as you would expect.

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week – February 2011 – Fall Collections

I recently had the honor and privilege of photographing a number of shows through ASJAIS Images.

Anyone who is close to me knows that I pretty much live for things like this.  I’m kind of obsessed with all things fashion and beauty related and to be so close to the editors I admire and to see designs from brilliant designers is somewhat of a dream come true.  Okay, it’s totally a dream come true.

I think my passion and love for this comes through in many of the photographs that I was able to shoot during the week.  I don’t think they would have been as strong if it were a subject matter I didn’t care this much about.  I wanted the pictures to evoke a feeling or

to allow the viewer to really experience what I was experiencing at that moment.  Here are some of my favorites from the week.

I love this

Fashion Week! This just in…not me

-sigh-

I kind of live for Fashion Week.  I’m late to the party on this.  I did not know that the characters responsible for my beloved Vogue, Bazaar, etc magazines, the editors, the designers, -gasp- the models! can be stalked seen parading to and from the shows.  I had no idea.  It’s like a magazine come to life.  It’s the equivalent of how a sports fan feels when they have great seats to an important game.  A game that comes twice/year.   Let’s go team!   I need some popcorn!  Get outta my way, you’re blocking me!  Okay – everybody calm down.

I love street photography – a la Scott Schuman’s www.thesartorialist.com.  To be able to combine my passion for photography with my passion for fashion (that is so corny but I couldn’t resist), well it’s kind of a dream come true.   So yea, I bring my camera with its big flash and I dress in black and try to fade into the scenery and I snap away.  Last Fashion Week, I snagged a photo of Anna and I kind of die for this photograph.  I have it framed not only at home, but in on my desk in my office.

I still can't believe I got this shot

I also had the fanfrickingtastic luck of attending some of the shows.  I won’t go into details but Mr. photog from the New York Times who shared your pass with me – I will love you forever.  I got the most insane shots during several shows and it was one of those once in a lifetime moments which I, of course, squeezed every ounce of joy out of.  Gimme that joy – it’s mine!  I have enlargements from that day on my walls at home.  Thank you God or whoever bestowed that upon me.  I told my son “it was a gift from God!”.  He said “no it wasn’t.  It was a gift from that guy who gave you his pass!”.  -whatever-

But…this year, I haven’t gotten inside yet.  Yet.  Yes, “yet”.  But I cannot forget the real reason I even started to go over to the shows in the first place, which was – to take photos of the editors, buyers, models, and various attendees.  I will post a full album for my Facebook people but here are a few that I got today.  I have the day off one day this week and I intend to do some major stalking.  Stay tuned.  Oh and if I do get arrested, like my husband seems to think I will, I’m calling Anna.

so cute. She's a walking ad

The new venue. No longer at the tents at Bryant Park. No more tents actually

I love these full swingy skirts. She had opaque black tights. Perfection

I love this! What are you wearing? My bright red heels, you? My flat sandals. Proving that heels trump sandals any day.

I cannot beLIEVE that I didn't catch that this was RZ until I looked at my images on screen. Rachel!!!!!!! Call me! (I always say that in my head). She can't hear me though. RACHEL! CALL ME!!!!

Outside of Donna Karan.

I mean really...this girl is just so cute.
