I adore shooting this show because the clothes are actually pieces I would buy. Many shows I have an admiration for, but the style isn't my personal style. Tory Burch's brand is. The whole collection had me picturing myself on the steps to the MET eating yogurt with the upper east siders.
The bows in the hair & on the shoes were on point
I drooled over the jackets - that I knew would be staple pieces in my wardrobe
The monograms made me swoon
Tory is one of the few designers that puts the models backstage in matching outfits. As a backstage photographer, this to me is gold. It makes the beauty images captured unique to the rest of the shows and puts the focus on the actual look. Tory's tracksuits are on another level too. They are chic.
First looks this season was perfectly set up backstage against a white wall and wood panel flooring in the Whitney Museum. Less than 10 photographers lined up against the rope as the models graciously posed for full shots.
I quickly ran to the runway and snagged a spot in the pit next to someone from Tory's team streaming the runway live on Instagram. I loved the angle I shot the show from last season, so I knew I wanted to be in a similar position for this show.
The cherry on top of it all? Seeing Tory Sport regram my outtake from backstage.
