The Prettiest Pics From Fashion Week

Most people don't get to experience Fashion Week, and fewer of them ever get to see how the Kool-Aid is actually made. But, if you get a chance to go backstage before a show, it is a humbling experience. You get a chance to see the actual hard work, hustle, and clever tricks that go into turning a clothing presentation into an art show. At the same time, models become real people, designers and stylists become artists, and the assistants and interns become magicians. Seeing the process behind the production is a show unto itself. For a 360 view on the entire week, this slideshow is here to deliver the most stunning moments beyond and behind the catwalk.
