The Male Model Music Project in Italy Part 5/ Paris Part 3 FALL-WINTER 2014-15 EDITION Full Photography Collection & Compilation

Stories & photos by Ivan Guerrero  
Edward Wilding at Ermanno Scervino Fall/Winter 2014-15 Backstage.

Awaiting the upcoming Spring/Summer 2015 menswear fashion weeks, I have created this special post in review of my latest trip to Europe for the Fall/Winter 2014-15 season.
A collection of photographs and special stories I shot during my traditional backstage inspections in Milan, Paris and Florence, that you don't want to miss since I have now updated with runway videos and some of them with extra pics for your viewing pleasure!
Special events, fashion trade show Pitti Uomo and backstage coverage review were usually the main core of my photography work during that visit, always looking forward to sharing with you things the way I saw them.
As a photographer I find really interesting the way every new season new experiences and challenges pop up when it comes to technique and skills.  Sometimes more than just a photographer, you need to become a sort of ' image psychologist ', a 'special invisible collaborator' who needs to get involved with the ambiance of a fashion show and its staff without being noticed (in the case of backstage specially) but also staying present when there is an opportunity for an interesting shot. Both active and quiet, fast and slow at the same time, holding a camera and pressing a shutter will definitely won't do the work, you need patience, a big sense of conviction and a relentless passion. Have a look and enjoy.

'Rock me Pitti' was the fair's layout for the 85th edition of Pitti Uomo. Bringing fashion and music (as well other ideas and disciplines) together has been one of the most recurrent elements and core themes which have inspired the tradeshows conceptual lines during past seasons.
