The icon of her childhood: Linda 

“She was a Russian star singer from the 1990s with a pretty dark universe. She had signature black hair and makeup.

I once went to school wearing the same lipstick as her and my teacher immediately asked me to take it off. To

this day I’m obsessed with all of her songs.”

skirt with dramatic dimensions.”


His iconic show: John Galliano Spring/Summer 2022 

“When I closed the John Galliano spring-summer 2022 show. It was a very theatrical show where we had to be expressive.

I remember we had underlined eyebrows, tied up hair sublimated with very pretty flowers in the hair and an incredible

transparent red dress.” Veruschka for Vogue 1965

“I learned a lot from her photos, I actually had the chance to meet her once. She exchanges a lot with the photographer
