|New York, London, Milan and Paris boast wealth, style, culture and creativity as thousands take upon the cities each year to strut their stuff and quite frankly, compete, to see who will leave as King and Queen of Fashion Week.
After spending the last three years abroad covering the runway shows of the top fashion houses, I’ve come to one conclusion;
What happens inside on the runway is only the beginning...
The REAL show is outside.
Here, not only will you find some of the best and most expensive pieces in the world, but you will also experience an array of emotions as each guest takes to the streets to guide us on their own personal journey of luxury living.
You don’t have to be famous to rule the fashion streets, but remember, cat-walking into the Chanel show next to Gigi Hadid or Giovanna Battaglia may not be as easy as it sounds. So bring your A-Game!!!

Cleveland, Ohio native, Robert Ector, has earned the respect of international audiences as well as his industry peers. As personal photographer to stars such as Mary J. Blige, Wendy Williams, Steve Harvey, Toni Braxton and La La Anthony, Ector’s captivating images has quickly helped cement him as a recognizable talent in the entertainment and fashion industry.
Ector’s love affair with the arts started at the tender age of two; recalling memories of extraordinary weekend painting excursions with his grandfather. These childhood times heavily influenced and contributed to his innate appreciation of limitless beauty. A creative youth, Robert used his allowance to purchase disposable cameras and orchestrated photo shoots with members of his large family, ultimately turning these photos into elaborate albums that fascinated his classmates.
In addition to coveted, hands-on, internships with highly renowned photographers, Ector’s vast educational experience began at Benedict College and concluded at The Art Institute of Atlanta where he studied Photography.
Having spent extensive time abroad in London, Paris and Italy photographing runway shows for elite designers such as DOLCE AND GABBANA, VERSACE, and FENDI, Ector contributes the fast-paced and often grueling world of international fashion to the honing of his photography skills.
Bridging his dexterous understanding of studio photography with his love of bold and provocative street style is what defines his artistry.
Robert’s gift lies in his ability to transform his subjects and by putting the most solitary of items together to create a cohesive and visionary masterpiece. Eclectic elements of glamour and luxury, deep-rooted in the lighting design, brands Ector as a signature artist. This distinction in taste and observation of detail has landed his work in multiple national and international magazines and print campaigns for VOGUE JAPAN, MAC Cosmetics, VARIETY, and NBC Universal.
Ector insists, “There are no rules to photography,” instead, focus on the qualities that each unique individual brings. He believes that those disposable cameras used during his early childhood contributed to his understanding that regardless of the camera or the lens, beauty manifests in the subject’s sheer presence and willingness to show up as themselves.
