Here were a few moments backstage that preceded the Alexis Barrell show that I posted last week. Though an industry standardisation now exists for the aesthetics of such presentations, I live for the opportunity to photograph what goes on behind the fashion curtain. The intimacy alone makes the experience feel special. In looking ahead to the fall 2014 season, I’m often wondering how my coverage of fashion will expand beyond the current notions of what we photographers are expected to present, but I do know the more time I spend in close ranks, the stronger my observational opinions become. In the meantime, as long as these images are conveying an evolution in thought, everything is good.

Enjoy.
