September 2016, I went to New York for my very first NYFW. A solo trip without any of my friends by my own. It was a great experience, I already know the city because I’ve been many times in New Yorker and I am a truly fan of the big apple.
It was not so easy to find location show, and which shows are interested a lot of brands are presenting their collections in New-York but not well know by the general people.
I also know, Kanye West will present his collection during the fashion week, but unfortunately the location was secret till the last hour.
I did find the location thanks to some guest who were posted their invitation in Instagram story.
So the show was attending to Franklin Roosevelt island. I remember waited hours and hours, the show started late because of Kanye.
this show did a bad buzz, because models were waiting for hours standing hours under the sun. There are even some who have fainted.
Finally guest were leaving the show and I started shooting, it would be probably my last show of the day so I decided to stay till the last person.
And hopefully I stayed till the end because, even if big celebrities have left by car directly from the show, Winnie Harlow, a model know for her skin, left the show by walk. Most of the photographers left the location at this time, so we were 3 photographers, and good part of this, it was only street-style photographer, so we were letting each other some space to shoot!
I decided to not shoot straight, because I wanted some different angles, and when hairs are long, the movement is really cool to capture, and she has white hairs this year, so the effect would be more spectacular.
This photo is my favorite street style photo ever, I was lucky and this what I love in this job, you always don’t know when you’ll have a good picture, you need to be patient, practice and be ready when the opportunity is coming.
Enjoy the photos, Eloan x
