Heidi Slimane

Heidi Slimane
I discovered this guy in a book entitled "fashionistos" He started working for Yves Saint Lauren in 1997 personally hired by the great man, on a condition he had to design how he dressed. He left and then worked for Dior Homme in 2000. In 2007 he left because 'I do it if it's fun. If it's not fun I give up and do something else.' Quite admirable considering the money he was being paid and the huge huge huge success he had in the industry. Since then he has been a photographer, sculpture and simply successful. His book entitled London: Birth of a cult, includes photographs of Pete Doherty and the London "indie" music scene, originally sold for £15 now fetches £250 due to the limited print release. He has a really interesting website with a picture diary which is well worth a look. http://www.hedislimane.com/ . I really like the idea of taking one picture everyday of something interesting you are doing. Apparently he gets asked daily to go back to fashion and was asked to replace John Galliano but is having far too much fun taking photos and listening to music......amazing!.
