Until June 28, Studio Harcourt presents Séries de Mode by Francoise Huguier. She present it this way:
I started the fashion series with Marie Claire Bis. The artistic director at the time had seen my fashion show photos in Liberation. He asked me if I was interested in doing fashion series. I told him that I didn’t know anything about it. He told me that he would put me in collaboration with a talented stylist, who would choose the dresses with me. She also taught me how to select hairdresser, make-up artists and models and I had the idea of the theme.
One of the first trips we took together was to Martinique, hence the photo of the return from the burial. The model is wearing a Cacharel dress and sweater. The scene took place in a pineapple field after the rain, where three Martinicans are present in black hats and black suits, whom I had spotted during the funerals. When I show this photo now, everyone thinks it’s news. Which is normal because I come from reportage.
The collaboration with Marie Claire Bis lasted 10 years. Then the newspaper closed and I worked for Marie Claire, always with the same perspective of reporting and film framing. My best memories are the scouting and the collaboration with the stylist, the hairdressers and the make-up artists and the discovery of certain countries.
