ELLE brings you the most unique, suprising and astonishing view from behind the scenes of London Fashion Week: nearly 400 pictures of 22 designers, five days shooting from 7am until midnight. This is more than a vision of backstage, more than a spy into the studios of our favourite designers. This is a portfolio of fashion pictures like you’ve never seen before. We asked designers to take us backstage and into their studios days (and nights) before their runway shows to capture what really happens. Photographed by Yara De Nicola we have documented every emotion in the raw in a stunning reportage portfolio.
