It was an effervescent time, I was asked to work for very different mediums, such as Lui, Stern, The Sunday Times Magazine, English Vogue, The Daily Telegraph Magazine. I lived in a studio rue Campagne Première but quickly realized that I wanted to leave the studio, from morning to night in the dark did not suit me, I liked the unexpected and constraints from outside.
After a few years of absence Peter Knapp returned to Elle, Antoine Kieffer was there too, I discovered Morocco, seeing the henna I proposed a subject to the Sunday Times, as well as seeing one night come down from the Hilton a lady in fur with golden shoes the idea came to me to make a gold subject with jeans and a golden spray on the accessories and surplus shoes with Donna Jordan and Pat Cleveland, the stars of the moment. A Fortuny book in Venice with José Alvarez for Editions du Regard. Following the rise of fashion shows twice a year since the 1960s, “trends” with Melka Treanton for Femme Pratique that became Depeche Mode. English Vogue with Grace Coddington, Stern with Simone Bergmann.
In 1977 I left Elle after the departure of Peter and Antoine. Claude Brouet, editor-in-chief of Marie Claire invited me to work for the magazine. We could not guess that it would last 22 years, not with Claude because in ’88 she left for Hermès, on the other hand we still see each other, as well as those who followed her, Catherine Lardeur and Elisabeth Bernigaud, who left us recently.
