We love to follow fashion designers and their labels on Instagram for the priceless peeks they give us behind the scenes. Nowhere else can you see the model choosing process over at Proenza, or the extreme organization over at Carolina Herrera. Since New York Fashion Week officially kicks off today, we rounded up the 10 best insider pics from some of our favorite designers to get everyone in the spirit. Click through, then keep your eye on tFS as we cover the best of the week's offerings. (And be sure to follow us on Instagram for our own backstage look at NYFW.)
