Lincoln Center, New York
—SCROLL DOWN FOR MORE IMAGES—
The call time for the Lacoste show was 8am; not bad for work but definitely grueling for girls being on their feet for 12 hours 4 days in a row. Some of them arrived sleepy-eyed, some wide-eyed, while a couple still rode high on the effects that fashion week excitement can bring for newcomers. By my count there weren’t any rookies in the room (at least not among the women; most of them were legit starters), so the ensemble was particularly strong. Somehow this post took me 4 hours to cull together, even though most of the images had been edited months ago, and I would’ve posted this much sooner, but had to wait for my commission to clear. And I couldn’t post this without thanking my friend Driely S., who ensured that I didn’t have any complications on this day.
