Every year Fashion Week comes, and it is a whirl wind of sequins, skirts, heels, sunglasses, flash-lights and models… And then it’s over. You don’t often get to see what is going on behind the scenes, it is a lucky journalist or blogger that gets a backstage pass (some designers refuse to give any out, as they want people only to see the final product and believe if people saw how the beauty was created, it would detract away from the finale).
Anyway that is why at the end of New York Fashion Week, and the eve of London Fashion Week I thought these pictures were so beautiful.
