Photography duo, ioulex (aka Julia Koteliansky and Alexander Kerr) traveled from NYC to Milan and will be heading to Paris next week to cover Fashion Week in both cities for “T: The New York Times Style Magazine.” We equipped them with two Leica M9s to cover all the action backstage and as such they’ll be keeping us, and you, updated here on the Leica blog. You can read more about their trip in our interview with them.

These are our first notes on Fall/Winter 2011 fashion show season in Milan.

As always it comes as a shock to be part of an army of photographers. Whether you’re backstage, at the show venue or within a 100 meter radius, everywhere you look pictures are being taken. Everybody is a photographer and anybody with strange shoes is a subject. Imagine the sheer volume of images being created.
