It takes a village to put together a fashion show, yet alone a haute couture show.

Behind the breathtakingly beautiful and abstract dresses sent down the runways, there is a dedicated team of designers, stylists, seamstresses, makeup artists and assistants beavering away to make it all possible. These backstage images provide a glimpse into that creative chaos — as well as the split-second moments of calm — that is involved in stitching together that half an hour of incredible runway magic.
