The Rack

The Rack
Each outfit, or look, is neatly organized backstage along with a model's photograph — a modicum of order in the chaos that goes into producing a fashion show. Models usually get into their first look about 10 minutes before the show. Some are required to walk the runway a second time with a different look, a process that requires a team of dressers and stylists to help with the frenzied metamorphosis.
