WLAA STYLE + HALLS KC
One of my favorite things is plotting look book shots backstage.
Don't get me wrong I love shooting runway - from Paris Fashion Week to New York Fashion Week. But theres something particularly special for me when I get to 1:1 connect with the models in the show and document the clothing before the tension is released on the runway. Plus I don't have to elbow anyone to get out of my bubble from the pit lol!
Theres such a hype and anxious exciting energy that transmits backstage. Its my job to take my studio skills and bring them on location.
This venue was 90's decor backstage and not a lot of options to vibe with what the collection was. I ended up spotting this white lil alcove that used to house the store shelving. Even with the chrome vertical lines I was still able to 'make it work' in a positive light and make our garments pop the way they were intended.
