A free spirit

This has been done since July 7, when the playful and smiling stylist invited a handful of journalists and fashion icons in his studio-house in the Marais, a parade Haute Couture, intimate certainly, but entering the official program of the Fashion Week.
Free Electron fashion, as demanding as flamboyant spirit, the designer is yet present in the heart of women, stars or anonymous, for over thirty years. His house, backed by the Richemont group since 2007, occupies a special place in a hysterical fashion and media galaxy, consuming energy and talents without ever questioning.
