Sonny Vandevelde backstage at Louis Vuitton SS12

Dear Shaded Viewers,

While the Louis Vuitton show was taking place, two busloads of press were stuck in intense traffic and never made it to the show. It was always my understanding that if you were on the official schedule that you had to wait until the official fashion bus arrived before starting the show. Just as the bus was getting close to the location, I spoke with my man Sonny Vandevelde and found out that the show had already ended. Philippe and I jumped off the bus and took the metro back to around JP Gaultier. Luckily Sonny Vandevelde was smart enough to not attend the show before and took these photos for us all.




I love this photo.
