With New York Fashion Week right around the corner, we thought you might want to hear the inside scoop straight from an expert. Earlier this year, we caught up with Lubov Azria for some behind-the-scenes insight. Azria, the chief creative officer of BCBG Max Azria Group, is responsible for developing and maintaining the vision behind the brands BCBG Max Azria and Hervé Léger.

The accomplished designer and creative leader shared details on everything from model casting to what it’s like minutes before the show starts. Plus, she explains “fashion week’s version of a touchdown.” Hint: There are shoes involved. Although the brand isn’t showing this year at NYFW, the top-secret info is truly fascinating and informative for any fashion lover.
