back to list

With his eye for capturing moments of pure, unrestrained spirit, photographer Sonny Vandevelde has long been our go-to for a behind-the-scenes look at NYFW. This season, we are fortunate to have the Belgian-born, Australian-bred lensman share with us some of his favorite backstage moments. Below, a series of photographs that perfectly capture the uncut energy and kaleidoscopic color of fashion week in full swing.
