Dr. Martens has long-held a presence at NYFW and this season was no different. Docs were spotted on runways at highly-regarded designers like Prabal Gurung, industry-shifting brands like Chromat and Pyer Moss, and new labels like CIE Denim and PH5. We sent photographer Erik of @thedappermethod to get a behind the scenes look; keep scrolling to see what he captured.
Nepalese-American designer Prabal Gurung celebrated his 10th anniversary in the fashion industry with a collection that explored the idea of Americanism. We got a backstage look of the models preparing to take the runway in the Gryphon sandal.

Brooklyn’s King Theatre was packed for Pyer Moss. The show joyously celebrated black culture; the runway was backed by an all-black choir, outfitted in the 1461 Bex, who sang a range of verses from Cardi B, Queen Latifah, Whitney Houston, and Missy Elliot.

Finally, at LRS, the collection was inspired by darkwave disco, melancholia, and modern deconstruction. Models strutted down a neon pink lit runway in the Greame II and 1B60 Virginia.Runway Photos by Jacob Pritchard
