Celebration of American Fashion Week History and its Bright Continuity in the 21st Century


Credit Block Basic

  • When I was living in New York in the 90s, there was nothing more thrilling than going to the fashion shows. 

  • The shows were not just about seeing the latest collections, they were also about the excitement happening behind the scenes at every major show. 

  • Rockers and supermodel would be partying backstage while Hollywood stars would be triggering paparazzi mayhem out in the front rows and outside the tents. 

  • Interestingly, in the beginning, photographers were mostly absent backstage… I was just having fun hanging out with a camera! 

  • And while today’s shows are equally entertaining and even more celebrity-packed, the 90’s were very important formative years for American Fashion.

  • From the 1990’s Marc Jacobs emerged to become a true international fashion icon and New York Fashion Week became a Top Fashion Venue! 

  • Camilo’s Big Shows photo exhibit represents my life ‘s work!
