backstage qasimi a/w 2011 paris fashion week

i was lucky enough to be given access to the backstage of the qasimi men's show earlier this month. though i was there pretty much 5 minutes before the show started, i managed to get a couple of shots before and after the show. i really liked the selection of younger models and the tribal-ish head makeup each model wore and it was my first experience backstage ever but i quickly understood how hectic it is getting everyone ready amidst the models, crew and photographers. / j'ai eu la chance d'aller backstage pour le défilé de qasimi pendant la  fashion week homme. malgré le fait que je sois arrivée 5 minutes avant le debut du défilé, j'ai réussi à prendre quelques photos avant et après le show. j'ai vraiment apprécié la sélection des mannequins plus jeunes et le maquillage tribal sur leurs visages et vu que c'était ma première expérience backstage, j'ai vite compris le challenge d'avoir tout le monde prêt au milieu des mannequins, l'équipe et des photographes.
