As guests filed into Milk Studios for Kevork Kiledjian‘s debut collection this past February during New York Fashion Week, front row fixtures like Julia Restoin Roitfeld and Leigh Lezark caused a stir with paparazzi. But backstage was where all the real action was at, and we’ve got the exclusive footage.
Fashion photographer Nicholas Routzen turned the pre-show chaos into art in this black and white behind-the-scenes video. He filmed hairstylists and MAC makeup artists transforming models, and seamstresses putting last minute touches on the garments. PR people yelled into their headsets, and the made up models adorned in Tom Binns jewelry posed for polaroids before hurrying to their spot in line, ready for the show to begin.
