A free spirit

This has been done since July 7, when the playful and smiling stylist has invited a handful of journalists and fashion icons in his home workshop in the Marais for a Haute Couture fashion show, intimate certainly, but entering the official program of the Fashion Week.
Free Electron fashion, mind as demanding as flamboyant fashion designer, however, is present in the heart of women, stars or anonymous, for over thirty years.
