DapperQ Dress Code: NYFW 2018

Last Thursday, DapperQ held its fifth annual runway show during NYFW, entitled Dress Code. This was my second year shooting both behind the scenes as well as the runway show itself, and I can honestly say that my experience this year was just as good, if not better, than last year.

Last year, I went into the show knowing nothing and no one. It was my first time attending any sort of runway show, never mind photographing one, but everyone I spoke with made me feel so welcome. I even made some friends that I've kept up with throughout the year. This year, I went in with a better idea of what I was doing, photography-wise. Photographing the show is fun and all, but the best part was getting to see familiar faces and catching up with the friends I made last year. I am extremely introverted and don't do well in a room full of strangers, but the DapperQ community is truly a family, and it's so nice to feel so comfortable and to be myself with both friends and strangers alike.
