The Real Stars Of New York Fashion Week (Video)

As New York's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week winds down, we wanted to take a moment to celebrate the real heroes: the people who make everything happen behind-the-scenes.

We chatted with a check-in girl, from Blue Stripe PR, who was working the guest list for Porter Grey's presentation at Lincoln Center, a security guard, who used to be a high school teacher and has now been working in security with his father for over 15 years, and a show producer who spends months helping the designers achieve their vision. Watch the video above as they run around last-minute, protect the A-list celebrities who attend shows and handle uninvited guests.

Thank you to IMG/Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
