The spring 2013 collections we got to preview at Paris Fashion Week truly proved that Paris will remain—forevermore—our favorite fashion capital in the world. From Louis Vuitton to Chanel and Stella McCartney to Chloé, designers and labels put out a show that nearly eclipsed every other presentation that took place in New York, London and Milan. Then again, that’s just pure bliss talking.
It’s been a week or so since PFW ended, but we’re still reeling in awe with the careful attention to detail and enormous display of tailoring mastery we witnessed. Just like any other fashion show however, the scenes running up to the second the first model steps out on the runway is often an equally electrifying experience. We pored through all the backstage photos from PFW to deliver you 25 of our favorite images.
From Cara Delevingne’s laughter party with Lindsey WIxson at Chanel to models idling away the waiting time with a book, click through the slideshow above to see what happened at some of the most exciting PFW shows before they even started.
