the story doesn’t end here

When I was 15 years old, I was really into photography. Back then it meant very conceptual, sometimes very post-producted portraits or self-portraits. Although I never stop having a strong relationship with photography, I wasn’t very active photographer for quite a while.

Last week-end I was with my friends in St Étienne and we were walthing through an amazing street, with old doors, empty shops, everything very poetic. So I made Nawael pose for me in front an empty laundry shop and I fell back in love with taking pictures that tell a story in colours and faces. Take it as a beginning of #margotalsothephotographer, I’m ready to tell more stories!

The story goes like this:

I just finished a blouse for my new collection Amore mio. It has this super fancy Victorian-like collar (I don’t even try to hide anymore my Jane Austen / Anna Karenina era obsession) and I was so pleased to finish it. I was getting ready to put en embroided text on it, when I decided to finally look over the menswear fall 2017 collections that has been going since January.

Unusually, I liked a big number of shows. Well, to be honest, except Vetements and Off-white, I never really understood what’s all the hype about. As I don’t like being negative so I must say that I particulary loved Undercover collection. It is crazy enough and sending the right message – with “brainwashed generation” picture being in my inspiration folder for years, the jacket is definitely on my wishlist.

Nevertheless, then I saw collection of Ann Demeulemeester and I was stunned. I mean, I love the collection, Ann Demeulemeester is my longtime favourite brand, and I would wear it straight away, because it has all aesthetic forms my too romantic and poetic soul desires.




Seriously, do I have a soulmate in Sébastien Meunier or the odds are just not in my favor?

I couldn’t be more excited.
