Fashionable Paris

Need to Know presents VII Magazine, a journalistic partnership with VII Photo, which gives our readers unprecedented intimate access to the work of the world’s leading photojournalists. Every day, our partners at VII will showcase a new photo, and each week, a new video or audio slideshow.

For more than seven days, photographer Stefano de Luigi dodged needles and irons, surly models, racks of clothing and dozens of workers documenting the chaos backstage at Paris Fashion Week, “Prêt-à-Porter” Spring/Summer 2011 collection.

Note: This audio slideshow can be found in VII Magazine’s archives. To view it, visit the VII Magazine page and click on the “Features” tab.
