New England Fashion Week was riding a buzz around the bar among the patrons of Take the Roof of Cancer on Oct. 21
But backstage at Rooftop 120 in Glastonbury, Conn., there was another kind of buzz as hairstylists and makeup artists readied the models, photographers posed the models for quick portraits, designers dressed their models, and models rehearsed their runway walk.
This is what happened in the sanctuaries where the public was kept at bay.
