17 Backstage Moments From New York Fashion Week

Hair, makeup, clothes, friends, and more.

This year, New York Fashion Week made some pretty major statements: Anneisa Hasibuan's D'Jakarta show became the first to feature hijabs with every look, body-positive model Iskra Lawrence made her runway debut, and Doutzen Kroes, along with others in the industry, took the opportunity to rally support for The Elephant Crisis Fund

Meanwhile, A Plus headed backstage to catch all the behind-the-scenes action, from hair and makeup to nails, clothes, and everything in between.

Check out some of our favorite backstage moments below, featuring the Desigual and Taoray Wang shows, as well as a few of our favorite Instagrams courtesy of designers, models, and photographers snapping through the week.
