On 31 May 2010, photographer Corine Brisbois came to Lacoste to shoot the fashions of L'etoile de Marie. The designer prides herself in always using local resources, so the photographer, models, stylists, fabrics, even the people who actually make the clothes, come from Provence. The only outsider was SCAD student Kyle Humphrey, who was lucky enough to be available and assisted Corine on the shoot.
In addition to buying locally, Marie uses only fabric that is grown organically. Her philosophy is that even fashion can be kind to the earth.
Everyone on the shoot was relaxed and easy to be with. In spite of the fact that she didn't speak much English and he spoke no French, Corine was kind and inclusive working with Kyle and made it a point to show him results on the back of her camera and explain what she was doing.
Working with wonderful people, on a beautiful day, in an incredible place- does it get any better?
