The Fashion week fever is almost on us! From New York to London, Paris to Milan and even here in Nigeria, Fashion week is a big deal. On August the 19th, fashion designer Carmen Marc Valvo who has styled Catherine Zeta Jones, Katie Couric and many other celebrities opened his studio to John Minchillo, a freelance photojournalist for The Associated press. John’s aim was to capture behind the scenes of the dress making process and here are some of them.
“The range of emotions can go from elation to depression,” Valvo says. “The most rewarding part of building the collection is when you make your final edit and the run of show is set in stone and no more changes can be made.”
Absolutely fabulous! Can’t wait to spot this fabric somewhere…
‘There are no raised voices here. No thrown coffee cups, tantrums, or arguments. Stereotypical depictions of a fashion world run by divas do not apply. Even for seasoned professionals, there’s so much to be done before the lights bathe the runway.’
This is a must-have…*gushing in excitement*
