Romance Was Born's 'Mushroom Magic' collection MBFWA 2013
I've been photographing backstage at Romance Was Born's Australian Fashion Week shows since 2008 and every year it's extraordinary - a colourful mix of the best fashion, models, hair, makeup, styling, set design, music - the whole shebang.
This year I was lucky enough to set up a paper roll backstage away from the jostling elbows of press photographers to get some one on one looks with the models before they strode down the catwalk.
Here's some edits collaged by Simone Mandl:
And between takes on the paper roll i ducked out to shoot some more behind-the-scenes action.
