This NYFW, we joined forces with LADYGUNN magazine for a peek inside the day in the life of a fashion insider. First up, Designer Jess Marak (@jessmarak) reports live for Steve Madden Mag and LADYGUNN straight from the streets and shows of the SS16 season. Check out her photo diary below!
"I attended the Charles Youssef presentation Wednesday morning in Meatpacking. I found it more intimate and personal than a traditional runway show. I was able to shake hands with the designer, get up close with the garments and interact with the models as I was photographing them. The show was inspired by one of my favorite artists, Esther Stewart. I could see her influence in the geometric prints and architectural pleates as well as the oversized circular accessories. Every detail was considered from the hair & make-up to the stage furniture, which was designed by Anna Karlin, another one of my favorites! Overall, the presentation was everything I could ask for: geometric, sophisticated and minimal." — Jess
