Carine Roitfeld

September 7, 2013  |  Streetstyle

Outside of Alexander Wang’s show at Pier 94 tonight, several security guards were assigned to keep the photographers under control. This involved lots of yelling – and in the photo of Carine Roitfeld above, announcing that they were purposely blocking the shot.


Given the spectacle that’s evolved over the past 3 years since I first began shooting street-style in Chicago and at New York Fashion Week, I can’t say I blame them. Some photographers are incredibly aggressive. It’s intense (but fun) for me to shoot around so many other photographers, but I imagine it’s also stressful for the buyers, editors, and guests to constantly fight past a throng of cameras just to get into every show.


Now I’m left wondering what’s next for street-style photography at fashion week…
