Nine West Runway Relief: Behind the Scenes



















I've been hanging onto these photos since May, when I attended the Nine West Runway Relief shoot to capture some behind the scenes shots. The Nine West Runway Relief Program raises funds and awareness for the CFDA's charitable organization, Fashion Targets Breast Cancer (FTBC). While on the set, I had the chance to meet (and fall a little bit in love with) spokesmodel Carolyn Murphy, who donated her time and a financial contribution toward the program.

I also had a chance to chat with Nigel Barker, who photographed the campaign, as well as several of the other models who, as you can probably tell, seemed to be having a blast on this shoot for a wonderful cause. Each participating model will be outfitted with a pair of limited edition Runway Relief boots from Nine West, along with a fitbit to track each step they take during fashion week, from castings and fittings to after parties and beyond. Nine West will donate $1 for each mile they walk, along with a designated donation - and all of the proceeds from the sales of the limited edition boots, tank top (designed by Leslie Fremar) and messenger bag will go to FTBC. You can also make a contribution by sponsoring a participating model here or donating directly.

Models, get your fitbits ready!

  5. People often think of fashion as shallow and superficial, but it inspires people and does a lot of incredible things like the Nine West Runway Relief Program. Love Nigel Barker. =)

  8. Not going to lie - I have had a mini crush on Nigel Barker since the first seasons of ANTM. But let's keep it between you and me (and the rest of the people who read the comments).

    Looks like a really awesome cause, thanks for sharing these pictures with us :)

    Nigel Barker! It's so weird to see him with hair. I'm so used to the shaved head a la ANTM!

  24. I didn't recognise Nigel with hair also! I saw him on a street in Auckland when NZTM was being filmed in NZ, and he is definitely even more handsome in person.

    What a great cause.
