Last week I covered the Ovadia & Sons show at New York Fashion Week Men's. Held at the Skylight Clarkson Sq, the show was as I like to call "beautiful chaos." Staff were running around backstage on headsets grabbing racks of clothes and cramming to set up after the previous designer's show. Models are chilling outside playing with chattering teeth wind up toys and drinking juices as they wait for rehearsal to start.
I rotated between covering backstage, first looks, front row and runway.
Actor RJ Mitte blended in with the models. The only thing making him stand out, was the Breaking Bad fans (other models) taking selfies with him backstage every 3 seconds.
It was an honor to photograph Ariel and Shimon Ovadia. Their passion for the brand and fashion is evident in the clothes they produce and the level of detail put into their craft.
Moments before the start of show, R.Kelly took his place front row with cigar in mouth next to the other front row attendees Dwayne Wade, Gabrielle Union, Elaina Watley, Victor Cruz, Johnny Galecki, Colton Haynes and Ally Maki.
