The First Two Acts (cont.) Saint Louis Fashion Week Fall 2014

This is a continuation of a series of photographs taken behind the scenes at Saint Louis Fashion Week events.  Most recently, I photographed a few of the runway events for the fall season.  The series called “The First Two Acts” is a documentary style glimpse of the bustling backstage. Please take a look at the previous post with a lot more images and the story they create.

Full disclosure, I do not claim to be someone who understands fashion very much, which is probably why I have such a draw to photographing it.  With the energy backstage and all the goings-on, most of which are new to me every time, it is more like photographing people of a foreign culture than simply a fashion show.  There are incredible moments that come out of all the chaos and for a few hours each show day I feel I am part of that chaos and I am lucky to get to discover the intricacies of it.
