My First Fashion Week: An Artsy Photo Essay

As I reflect on this past week I realize I took about 5,000 photos, perhaps the sum total of photos I took last year, and then deleted 4,000 of them. I spent five hours a night editing. I attended a larger number of shows than I ever thought possible—that original number being zero. I photographed Justin Doss smiling three times. I made a gif of Nick Wooster smoking in front of a smokestack. I ate homemade ice cream sandwiches with Tommy Ton. I was aggressively shoved aside by A$AP Rocky's security team at the En Noir presentation. My camera malfunctioned mid-blizzard due to water damage and I soaked it in a large quantity of rice until it worked again. These photos are an attempt to encapsulate the many wonders and follies of my first fashion week.
