LINCOLN CENTER — New York Fashion Week isn't all flashbulbs and glamorous runway shows.

With long waits between shows for some ticket holders and photographers, the tents at Lincoln Center become a  home-away-from-home for many. This is what the scene was like at midday at New York Fashion Week's hub. 

For Adriano Litvin, a 22-year-old from Brazil, the only way to achieve his sporty, tailored look including a white vest and leather lapel was to make it himself.

"Since I designed it, it is truly my style," he said.

While street style photographers jostle for the attention of show-goers at the front of the tents, models with often-understated looks come and go from shows mostly uninterrupted at the back of Lincoln Center.

Maja Kindgren, a 22-year-old photographer from Sweden, wore all black with a long pleated skirt, coat, hat and patent-leather shoes.
