Although New York Fashion Week Spring 2012 is done and dusted, traces of the eight-day jamboree persist. My half-dead BlackBerry has enough life, however, to recall 20 photos taken backstage with it over the course of the week. When I wasn’t busy shooting video on the sly, then I was doing my best to take full advantage of the smartphone’s camera without any of those daft retro-come-lately camera apps. There is an undeniable honesty and immediacy to these mobile-phone images, which in another 15 years will no doubt be nostalgically aped by whatever technologies we will use to capture pictures. Until then, click through the below slide show to see Hanne Gaby get her nails did at Rag & Bone, Julia Nobis lose her tattoos at Calvin Klein, or read exactly what that sign said about Brangelina backstage at Michael Kors.
