Jeremy Scott FW14 Backstage

Jeremy Scott with the legendary Caroline Cerfe de Dudzeele

At Jeremy Scott's FW14 runway show, I found myself amongst so many photographers and bottles of coconut/smart water I didn't know what to do with myself.  Backstage at Milk Studios is always a rush.  It is fun to be around the clothing, the energy, and the passion that comes from back of house - when everything is running smoothly like that day anyway.  Here are a few shots I took from behind the scenes.  Catch the rest on The Wild Magazine Online!!

Soo Joo Park

I took a taxi with my girl Soo Joo to the Jeremy Scott FW14 runway show.  She wore a beautiful Sandy Liang coat with such ease, as if it were nothing more than a white t-shirt.  She woke up like this.

Zana Bayne FW14

Zana Bayne presented a stunning Fall 2014 collection.  I strongly suggest you look up the runway images.  During the show the entire room was silent, with the exception of some gasping and jaw dropping.  The tassel leather leggings are a stand out in the collection, as is the croc embossed bride.

It was very special to witness this collection.  I have known Zana since we were young and running around San Francisco.  She has come such a long way and she works very hard with such beautiful and well deserved results.  Congratualtions, Zana!

Deszo by Sara Beltran FW14 Presentation

Duckie Brown FW14

"The Duckie Has Two Faces."  Duckie Brown doing womenswear is really exciting.  I was unable to take the best photos from where I was standing at this show, but I urge you to you check out the entire collection here.  The silhouettes are innovative yet wearable, new yet familiar.  Do not miss the shoes for both the men and women - I am guessing by Florsheim - I'M GOING TO NEED A PAIR OKAY.

David Hart FW14

David Hart AW14

David Hart's Fall 2014 Collection debuted at Industria Superstudio in NYC.  The theme was "The Twilight Zone," with clever details like hand painted cracked lenses on the models' glasses, television static effects in the jacket prints and shearling collars, and a single model holding a chained pocket watch to set the tone.  

Apart from his natural instincts for choosing color and print, Hart is very skilled in tailoring a classic suit in quality textiles for a modern silhouette.  There is so much diversity in his color palette, models, and assortment, yet somehow it all ties together beautifully in one tight, refined collection.   

The presentation was part of New York Fashion Week Men's Day, sponsored by Cadillac.  On display just outside the venue was the Cadillac ELR wrapped in a print from Hart's Spring Collection.

It was an honor to be able to shoot backstage for David Hart again this year.  Special thanks to Kien Hoang, Key Stylist for the Oribe Haircare team.

KYE FW 2014 Backstage

The Fall 2014 shows have started here in New York, and clearly it is off to a great start with this stunning collection from KYE.  She achieves the perfect balance of street and refinement in her proportions, materials, and print.  This was such a lovely show to photograph as many of my favorite models were there including Guerrino Santulliana, Sungjin Park, Dima Dionesov, Robert Laby, and Abel van Oeveren.  You should know by now just how much I love South Korea, so this is the best way for me to start out fashion week!  Check out the rest of the photos on The Wild Magazine's website here, and stay tuned for more coverage.
