Fashion After 5
Photography by Hunter Abrams
Our own dear Hunter Abrams has a drive and character that's larger than life–so we weren't surprised when his images of some of NY Fashion Week's most elite faces and personalities were just that. While most street photographers and show-attendees were kicking off their Chloé heels and putting up their Margiela loafer-clad feet, or tossing coats over shoulders (no arms in sleeves), rushing off for a quick bite before the deluge of after parties, Hunter stayed after hours, allowing him to capture these intimate portraits.
In the evening after numerous shows-- Altuzarra, Marc Jacobs, Opening Ceremony, Oscar de la Renta, Zac Posen and Proenza Schouler--Hunter's waited, his shutter ready to click away.
When the lights on the runway went down along with the sun, so did many of the pretenses, game-faces, and facades. Instead, we see portraiture without the posing. And the essence behind some of our muses, heroes, and perpetual sources of style-inspiration.
