Drawing in the Moment: Runway Portraits From New York Fashion Week

Photo: Bil Donovan

Fashion Week is a piñata of visual treats — hit it enough, and it will explode in an optical bounty to last for months. And though the antics surrounding the shows of last week’s fall 2014 collections were amply photographed by professionals and amateurs alike, sometimes it’s nice to see a more impressionistic take. This season, once again, we sent illustrator Bil Donovan backstage to capture another perspective on the beautiful scene. Click through the slideshow ahead for drawings from some of the season’s buzziest shows, including Rosie Assoulin, Delpozo, Thom Browne, and more.
