In an era when runway show livestreams, tweets from the front row and instant backstage beauty coverage is considered all part of fashion week, anyone with a good internet connection can feel like they’re in the tents, experiencing it first hand. But there are still a few mysteries to be discovered in the before and after moments of a big show—and, thanks to Toronto-based photographer Nathan Cyprys, we’re sharing them with you! While the rest of us were split between street style posing and watching models come down the runway at World MasterCard Fashion Week, Cyprys was backstage, documenting the last-minute frenzy of show prep at Sid Neigum, Klaxon Howl and Matthew Gallagher. If you’ve ever wanted to be a show stylist, like seeing models in the moments before they turn up the fierceness or just enjoy beautiful fashion photography, this behinds the scenes gallery is for you.
