Backstage during Fashion Week is always somewhat of a frenzy, but in the most wonderful sense of the word. Dresses are being steamed to erase any crinkled imperfections (despite the pieces already looking perfect) and the final loose threads are snipped away.
Make up and hair styling stations are not only packed with the models waiting for their turn in the chair before they can be dressed, but with a small circus of photographers, video cameras and interviewers.
However, in between the frantic moments, the models often wait a long time between being styled and finally being dressed moments before the catwalk begins. Here are some of our favourite moments from backstage Spring Summer 2017, Paris.
