As a former fashion blogger who works for a company that sends a small group to NYFW every year, but has never been herself, I really loved this post, Kris. Not only are the images gorgeous, but they also convey a sense of atmosphere that I don’t get from a lot of other, more plasticky fashion photography. Thanks for sharing.

absolutely breathtaking photos. and so, so real.

nicolette replied almost 8 years ago.

Absolutely love this. A genius post!

Rebecca replied almost 8 years ago.

Beautifully taken! I like the different spin too, you always get the feeling it’s all srs bsns, which is interesting of course, but it’s nice to see behind the glossy façade for once.

Stella replied almost 8 years ago.

Behind the scenes are much more interesting! Not polished world, a lot more life. And that Taylor Swift picture is breathtaking.

Polina replied almost 8 years ago.

Wow, that’s so crazy. I didn’t even think about it. Thanks for sharing this eye-opening but still beautiful post!

It’s a wonder anybody gets any decent shots at all! You should definitely be proud of those skillz. :) Thanks for making me smile this morning! I especially love the long exposure shots showing the madness.

Jenny replied almost 8 years ago.

SO funny. I like you because you can make fun of things like this and still clearly love and respect the people in the industry.

The guy near the end holding the boom mic is hilarious to me.

One of my most favorite things about your blog and your work is how no-nonsense you are. This is the icing on the truth bomb cake!

Claire replied almost 8 years ago.

Really appreciate that, thank you! x

kris atomic replied almost 8 years ago.

I love the actual ones more but it shows how talented you have to be to be able to spot the moments in the first section within the hustle and madness that seems to happen around you :)

Rhianne replied almost 8 years ago.

This is great, I have been thinking a lot about this lately (seeing pictures of conflict and then 1000s of press photographers around that conflict, for example…). Your example is just perfect.

Jennifer replied almost 8 years ago.

[…] love this inside look of what fashion week is REALLY like. So refreshing and a great reality […]

Haha love it! Thank you for sharing with us behind the scenes of all the glamour.

Tina replied almost 8 years ago.

I love this post! Of course, we all know that most of those fashion week photos are staged and don’t tell the whole story, but to get a glimpse behind the curtain, to see all the non-fashion people hanging around wearing jeans or whatever, is brilliant. I always love your photographs! :)

Mary replied almost 8 years ago.

ahahahaha this is genius! Love it!

Basia replied almost 8 years ago.

Not exactly related to the post, but I added the photo of the girl with the beautiful jungle-inspired print dress (second to last in the first set of photos) onto my Pinterest with your name and a link back to the post. I hope that’s okay with you! I just love the whole shot and that dress is gorgeous.

I actually prefer the “real” group of photos. It’s much more entertaining! I especially love the blurry images. They help tell the tale as well. :)

As I attended a few shows in NYC this year, the best description I heard for NYFW is that it is a shit show. Thanks for showing us that – you don’t see it in a lot of photos!

Krabi 03 — Maya Bay | greenlaundry replied over 7 years ago.

love this post! It’s more fascinating to see the “real Fashion Week” photos vs the what we pretend it to be like photos. I get sort of bored when I see the pretend photos and just want some realism.
