Backstage at the Academy of Art Show

I’ll always root for San Francisco… especially since SF-based Academy of Art takes their fashion graduates all the way to NYFW. That’s amazing, a big jump really, I mean, I love SF with all my heart, but it’s a surprisingly small town compared to New York, really! Since it was my first ‘backstage’ experience, I heard people saying that everything was really calm back there, I was walking around snapping pics chatting, thinking, “Holy moly, these recent grads must be taking loads of Xanax, because I am freaking out more than they are!” Then again, I seem to always freak out.




Oh… and I tried to get some good photos, but from the second row (Danny and I are sneaky)… it was just too tough. BUT I did catch photographer Bill Cunningham, who’s been photographing people on the street since WWII

    I was just in SF for a few days and walked past the Academy quite a few times, anyway, how exciting to be at NYFW, Im sure I would have been just as excited and nervous. I think MTV had a True Life about a student who was showing at fashion week just like this.

    Love bill c. on this day. I got a few shots of him too, just outside. I asked if he could take his picture. He didn’t say yes and he didn’t say no but he looked at me like he knew what it meant to have his portrait made. The pic is over here if you want to check it out: http://www.shoeyorkcity.com Thanks for a great event tonight!
