Our Favorite Behind-The-Scenes NYFW Moments

A look backstage at this season’s shows

Last Wednesday, Marc Jacobs closed out New York Fashion Week after seven days of back-to-back(-to-back) shows. From the emerging newcomers to those practically running the industry, each presented a Spring 2018 collection; a glorious presentation of what we’ll be seeing hit stores come springtime.

Whether or not you got to see these shows in person, chances are you were able to see it all as it was happening, thanks to social media. However, what most people don’t see (even the fashion people sitting front row) is what’s actually happening behind-the-scenes before a show takes place.

Curious? So were we. We sent photographer Andrew Blumenthal backstage to capture all of the happenings going on behind-the-scenes. Hint: There’s a bit of napping, and a lot of snacking.

Below, check out our favorite moments from Spring 2018 shows.

Believe it or not, these nails were the most low key of the group at Libertine.
