On a unseasonably warm weekend in the concrete jungles of Manhattan, beautiful white dresses paraded down the runways at leading Fashion Houses, bringing us the stories of art as gowns with endings for a lifetime of Happily Ever Afters.
When one thinks of a Fashion Show, what comes to Mind?
Designers, models, lights, runways, observers, and gorgeous garments perhaps?
The Pre-Show and Post-Show is seldom seen by the outside world and is a time when people gather to say hello and talk shop while photographers capture the images of fashion insiders eagerly awaiting the first look to grace the runway.
Here are some of my favorite moments shared before and after the runway shows during this Bridal Market for Spring 2013:
