our senior beauty editor reveals the magic

Every season during NYFW you can find me backstage with two things in my hand: my iPhone and a film camera. For the past six or so seasons, I’ve opted to use good ‘ol disposable cameras (click here to see!)—but this season I decided to bust out my 10 year-old Canon Rebel G to up the quality. Why do I document each fashion week with a film camera? Because of something called the Jade Taylor archives (lol)—which is basically just stacks on stacks of 35mm film, Instax 210 wide, and Instax mini photos from everything I’ve ever done that will hopefully, one day, be useful for something. Or, just fun to look back on!

Here, you can check out parts of my fashion week where I went backstage to Marc by Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler, Jeremy Scott at MADE Fashion Week, The Blonds, and Elizabeth & James.
