Mark Reay is well versed to the chaotic circus that is New York Fashion Week. Having captured the catwalk and backstage action for Dazed Digital for five years - ten fashion week seasons - he knows how to work the photographer’s pit and backstage scrum to get that stand out shot.

This season for Dazed Digital, Mark captured first looks of the androgyny revolution that was Hood By Air, and Yohji Yamamoto’s viral performance behind the drum kit for his Y-3 finale, among other memorable moments.

Here Mark reflects on the week that was with his New York Fashion Week diary, contrasting frantic backstage prep with models relaxing outside together between shows.
