Designers try to keep the inner workings of fashion week either veiled in a shroud of secrecy or neatly explained within the confines of a carefully crafted press release.  Ford Image’s Kate went against this idea for New York Fashion Week, allowing the New Yorker’s photo department to follow her throughout the week and document her experiences on their newly launched Instagram account. Shot by Lauren Lancaster, the series is at once grounded and sublime, humanizing fashion in a way that only The New Yorker, and Kate, could.
