New York City based photography duo, ioulex (aka Julia Koteliansky and Alexander Kerr) are covering Milan and Paris Fashion Week 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.

There was a lot of excitement in Milan at the end of the week. Armani was a blast and now The Great Fashion Week Migration continues as we move on to Paris. All the familiar faces resurface, some without their luggage. We’ve been shooting backstage at the shows as well as a few castings, which is a totally different experience. It’s a real privilege to observe designers at work in a relaxed setting, before the tension rises as the show approaches.
