Our photographers covered the crap out of "A Decadent Summer," the 10th annual West 18th Street Fashion Show. It wasn't without its hazards -- a steaming-hot summer night, claustrophobic crowd closeness and flying glitter ("The herpes of arts and crafts," an onlooker commented at the time).
But these guys are professionals.
Scott Spychalski and Forester Michael managed to crop out the sweat in these achingly gorgeous shots from the runway and backstage (click both links for separate slideshows). Yum, yum, eat 'em up.
