Capturing the mood before a fashion week show is easily one of my favourite jobs as a photographer. The idea of being able to show the world how models prepare or relax (or feel) moments before millions of people consume their every step on the runway via streaming video and Instagram shares, there’s poignancy in that. Like documenting a rock band or sports team in the locker room, there are nuances that make every situation different. The models for Sophie Theallet backstage were a somewhat pensive bunch—the toll of being ushered through 1o shows a day had clearly taken a toll on some of the girls and yet, this was something that Sophie Theallet’s team seemed to understand. The backstage area wasn’t frantic or noisy, and the girls were allowed to carve out their own space and really decompress. Serenity prevails.
