Backstage at RAD by Rad Hourani S/S 11 by Damien Neva

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week S/S 11 ended late Thursday evening, but it will take several more days for this event to completely shake out of the Ford Models Blog‘s system. Nearly all of the shows proper have been posted to this page — ninety women’s, twenty odd men’s — which has conveniently left time in our schedule to post photos taken backstage by Ford Models Blog editor Damien Neva at a handful of men’s shows including RAD by Rad Hourani S/S 11.

Monday afternoon at Milk Studios saw the presentation of the second RAD by Rad Hourani unisex ready-to-wear collection. The casting of Ford Men’s Aiden Andrews, Ian O’Brien, and Paolo Anchisi provided an opportunity for the Ford Models Blog to go backstage to witness firsthand the preparations that went into presenting what this author considers his favorite collection of the season. Much has been written about the Jordanian born designer’s eschewal of time, season, and sex when it comes to his collection, but to dwell solely on these conceptual pronouncements would be to overlook the power and grace of the pieces when actually worn by people.

Please visit Rad Hourani online to see a video of the entire RAD by Rad Hourani S/S 11 collection #2 presention. Please also take a visit the Ford Models Blog to see looks presented by Aiden Andrews, Ian O’Brien, and Paolo Anchisi.
