Sometimes there are moments in life so sunny and upbeat that the only natural response is to break out in dance. This explains why the models at Nanette Lepore’s Spring 2015 runway show, including the
New York designer herself, formed an Italian wedding-style conga line on the catwalk after the presentation, in tune with the playful and breezy seaside-inspired collection. But it’s not all beachwear and dance parties in fashion (well, all the time at least). We got a peek at the backstage prep work–from styling the models to choreographing that now-beloved dance routine–before showtime at the Lincoln Center Sunday night.
So what really happens backstage at NYFW? We go behind-the-scenes at Nanette Lepore Spring 2015 to find out!
