Cool outfit at 11 o’clock: here I come!
I think to myself : you and I are in for a good old fashion shoot my friend.... but it turns out my prey does not speak a word of French… or English for that matter.
I show him my camera, he nods… but there's no magic - nada, nope.
He’s clueless, I’m frustrated… until she comes out of a shop: “Hello ! ” She’s radiant, I’m relieved.
Ylann is a Malaysian designer and she's taking her best friend on a tour of the Paris Fashion Week. A grin appears on her face as she translates my words (at least I hope that's what she's doing).
As I leave, a few words tumble out of his mouth onto the pavement… and I think I pick up a “Merci”.
