Amidst a torrent of shows all across New York city, we decided to ditch the runways (for two hours) and let loose our fashion editor and renowned artist, Omi to go hunting for a more diverse look at NYFW beyond the walls of top fashion houses. Here is a glimpse of the chaos and wonder that is NYFW.
A Very Special Thanks go to Hasselblad North America and B&H Photo for providing us with the revolutionary Hasselblad X1D which produced these fantastic images.

To suggest that Bitte Kai Rand is one of the vanguards of Danish Fashion industry would be an understatement. She and her husband Michael started the label in 1981 and from quirky knitwear to classic drapes, she has built the foundation for the Danish market in more ways than one. Her ability to stay relevant; to stay nimble and evolve with the ever-changing dynamic of an industry that looks suspiciously on any legacy and ignores sustained creativity for the sake of a dash of flash has reached legendary status. So it is no surprise that Bitte's backstage is also full of wonder and diversity, not only of clothes but of models, of ideas, of vision, and of clarity.

This year we traveled to Berlin, Chicago, Istanbul, Milan, London, Paris, LA, New York, Florence, Athens, Barcelona, Madrid, Copenhagen, Oslo, Stockholm, Shanghai, Beijing, Seoul, Bucharest, Dhaka, New Delhi, Rome, Melbourne, Sydney, Sao Paolo, Buenos Aires, Mexico City, Cape Town, Riga, Washington DC, Edinburgh, Budapest, Auckland, Tel Aviv, Dubai, Moscow to cover fashion and provide platforms for emerging markets. So it is no surprise that at the end of the year we are sitting on top of a heap of photographic treasure. Among the hundreds of photos in-print and thousands on the web, we selected photos that had at least 1k hits and then curated the top 100 of them for our list.
Take a moment to enjoy the top 100 photos of the year.

Prague is one of those cities that through its rich history and ever changing sense of self has become a center for artists of all forms. A lot of these artists end up within the realm of fashion and each year we get to see what Prague's best is up to. But beyond the glitz of fashion week catwalks, the backstages provide a more brooding sense of chaos and creativity. And when that happens we are there to capture it. Prague based photographer, Lydia Vyčitalová captures the essence of the backstage in Prague from day one at MBPFW.
