Inside the Making of a Fashion Collection

Lindsay Jones describes the inspiration and insanity of New York Fashion Week.

"I do think the way we decide to get dressed in the morning says something about you. It's so shallow but it's quite ... complex!" Lindsay Jones muses. The model-turned-designer describes her creative process and its many contradictions in this documentary portrait from the New Yorkers series. Breathless as she prepares her latest collection, Lindsay Jones: China Bones, for Fashion Week, she shows off her bleeding fingers. "I'll lose like 15 pounds -- that's normal for me around Fashion Week." 

Produced by Moonshot Productions, New Yorkers is an ongoing portrait series about artists, musicians, and many more idiosyncratic locals. The producers of the series discuss the project in an interview with the Atlantic Video channel here
