The organization has gone through some changes, the most prominent change of all being the name itself, which is now FASHIONxt. The runway shows will still pretty much be the same as in years past, but the plaza will have awesome high-tech lifestyle products.
My home at any fashion show is still backstage, that is my favorite place to be and I would not want to be anywhere else. Sure you probably saw all the runway photos last year, but most of the backstage photos have been hidden away on my laptop, until now. Here are my favorite backstage shots by Steve Kemper from PFW 2011 Day 2, which featured designs from adidas, Anna Cohen, Lenzanita, Ethos Paris, Avni, and Earthtec.
