The Fashion Guardsby Eyal de Leeuw | 14.03.14
Photographer Barbara Anastacio focuses in her recent series on the other side of the fashion weeks. Presented in Nowness magazine Anastacio photographed the backstage area at various fashion shows (including Céline, Saint Laurent Paris, Diane von Furstenberg and others).
Instead of the usual models-getting-ready-ambiance she focused on the anonymous, quiet and elegant security guards who form a barrier between the behind-the-scenes to the rest of the world.
“They are models on their own catwalk” says Anastacio to Nowness “plus they always have the best fitted suits.”
