New York Fashion Week has officially begun, and designers across the entire city (and beyond!) are firing on all cylinders in anticipation of their respective shows and presentations. Unless you’ve personally logged some serious behind-the-scenes hours working at a brand or PR agency, however, it’s sometimes difficult to imagine being on the other side of that runway, prepping looks and models and bringing the whole show together. Leave it to Rachel Zoe, the industry’s ultimate multi-hyphenate, to remind us all of how much work truly goes into a single 10-minute-long fashion show.
In the below video—a Luckymag.com exclusive!—Rachel herself gives us a glimpse at how her Fall 2013 collection (now shoppable at Nordstrom.com) came to be. From her pre-show jitters to her season-specific inspiration, it’s all caught on camera—along with a few welcome shots of her adorable son Skyler, of course. Watch it below!
