La Garance d’Or…

Last September, during the New York Fashion Night Out, I had the opportunity to meet the lovely Garance Doré. Since she brilliantly shot the last Jil Sander advertising campaign, Garance was their guest of honor for their Soho party. To be honest appart from congralutating her on her work and asking her to pose for me (above), I didn’t have time to really talk to her. But from the little I saw, she is a very friendly, lively and down to earth woman… Don’t worry, next time I’ll meet her we’ll go for a coffee… right Garance? ;)

If you are interested in fashion or/and blogs you might be familiar with her work. In case not, to make it short… Garance started blogging as an illustrator in 2006 to showcase her drawings and later started to add street style and fashion pictures, interviews and videos.
What I find really interesting and inspiring is to travel back in time to her first ever blog post… (below)

And see how much she evolved, and kept improving herself. From a really cute drawing she went on to create beautiful, expressive and professional illustrations. It just show how much perseverance and hard work always pay…

An I am leaving you with this beautiful video I found on YouTube, showing Garance and her Sartorialist boyfriend Scott Schuman, style hunting together. Very Cute…
And unlike me… Not even the snow can stop them from working!

    Thanks for this post!

    I really like reading her blog, it's one of my favorite everyday reads, and I think that the reason why is that what and how she writes is very very cool but sometimes it gives you also the impression that you're talking to a friend… she's so spontaneous and lively that her post always give you a smile and make you feel like you're part of a dialogue, not that she's doing a monologue on her pages.

    No surprise that she's also a very friendly girl also "live"

    You were lucky to go to such cool event!

    Garance is really amazing and I believe that thanks to her fashion has been democratized, and many blogs have been created.

    Anyway nice blog !
