Valentine Fillol Cordier.
Is there anything in particular you would like us to mention?
I love working with my boyfriend on fashion stories; as we have the same taste in books, art, music, we search together for inspiration images, go to exhibitions, or read artist’s biography in order to create the next character we want to shoot. We always work that way and I love this research process.
