Lea Colombo has a real consistent knack for elevating, in a single still moment, the ambience of a show and the city itself: from the dark innocence at Simone Rocha to the quintessential allure of Burberry Prorsum. The images she took last week at NYFW are still engrained in our minds, especially that series of captivating portraits.

So here, as we ease away from London for this season, is another selection from Lea's diary - a black and white ode to the personalities behind the beauties that make these shows so mesmerizing.
