Behind the scenes photograpy – Paris Couture Week

To photograph the couture shows of Paris Couture Week backstage has always been one of my dreams. I adore couture because it’s handmade by craftsmen. This week, I had the honor to capture the backstage of four couture shows of Totem PR.

Rêves d’Amazonie

Paris Couture Week is there. Sakina presented her first Haute Couture bag collection this week and I was lucky to her assistant and PR manager for the last 6 months. We have worked very hard to make this presentation a succes. The theme of this collection is Amazonian dreams. You can read here more about the presentation and collection. I’ve been also lucky that I’ve seen all her presentation till now since she started. You can see more about her previous collections here: Bridal, Pink dresses, Red dresses and her defilé in Beirut, Lebanon.

 

One of the great sponsors was Au Pays de la Fleur d’Oranger, a parfum brand from the south of France.

ELLE Arabia – Sakina Paris

Ever since I joined the Sakina Paris team, I have been photographing inside the atelier besides being Sakina’s assistant. This week we planned a special photoshoot: a digital and printed article for ELLE Arabia. Lucky me, Sakina wanted me to take her portraits. Our lovely make-up artist Nora Kourkis from Sweden joined us for the shooting day, and created the most beautiful make up on Sakina.

Photographing and filming are two jobs close to each other. Sakina gave me the chance to edit the video, even though I had no experience in editing. The video is filmed by Manuel Laurent, and the interview is filmed by me.

You can read the article (in Arabic) here.

P.s. We are proudly organizing Sakina’s debut at Beirut Fashion Week in Libanon!

Sakina Paris – Une Forêt d’Automne

Last monday, January 23d 2017, during Paris Fashion Week, Sakina presented her new couture collection at the royale suite of the Westin hotel in Paris. This time Une Forêt d’Automne, what ‘An Autumn Forest‘ means was presented by a collection of 8 models. The masterpiece, in the middle, is a dress made out of 7000 pieces of leather, all cut by hand. That’s what I love about couture: every dress has been made by craftsmanship, patients and a big sense of passion.

And again, Sakina’s couture presentation was sublime. This couture week, she presented her second couture collection ‘A L’Ombre des Jeunes Filles en Fleurs’ which means ‘In the shadow of blossoming girls’ at the royal suite of the Westin Hotel in Paris.
