If you've yet to pick up the new issue of the paper, allow me to urge you to do so to check out this week's giant fashion spread, showcasing designs from many of the designers in this Saturday's Open Season fashion show. It took two days of shooting, a cast of seven models, the incredible generosity of a good friend with a gorgeous house, the talented photographer Neil DaCosta and guesting Merc Art Director of yore Mark Searcy's relentlessly perfectionist set styling—but in the end it's all about the clothes and the talented designers behind them.
