Runa Ray's show was not a typical runway show, but what they call a "presentation" where models stand in a line, and step forward to showcase their designer's piece for the audience and media.
The best part of being there was that it was Runa Ray's NYFW Debut! When you check out her link above, you'll see her September 2016 show, which has even more breathtaking work.
We hung out to the end of the show and captured this image of Runa Ray, her collection, and team of supporters. We're pretty sure it wasn't easy to get to this moment, and if we had to pick, this was the best image captured. We are documentarians at heart, and this is what we would call a #lifemadestill moment. :)
Runway shows for Shaco Couture and Chaz Aracil were held at the Angel Orensanz Foundation Event Space on the lower east side.
At the end of the runway, there were a set of bleachers for all the media people, and boy was it crowded! We met some super nice people ranging from photographers for fashion bloggers, to numerous different media outlets. We got very cozy with everyone, and utilized every inch space available to us -- this was definitely a new level of shooting conditions for us!
Overall, such a unique, unforgetable experience. Can't wait to shoot more events like this!
