While Keith spent the day shooting runway action, I spent most of the time backstage being a fly on the wall, documenting what goes on behind the scenes. It's organized chaos back there, with each model being catered to by an army of makeup artists, stylists and volunteers.
Here's a look at some of the action below including a video of Arthur Mendonca's show.
