PHOTOGRAPHY BY EDWARD BERTHELOT
What made you decide to work in fashion?
I was always passionate about it, more so than friends so when I discovered Instagram and I saw many people were sharing a lot about Fashion, I decided to post my daily outfits. As my following grew, I started to post more about lifestyle, travel and food. It's so wonderful to share so much and meet new people every day.
After I completed my Master degree in law, I joined Videdressing, a French marketplace dedicated to Fashion, as an expert in recognizing fake luxury goods and I am now the Head of Legal.
Describe a regular day
As a Head of legal, my job involves managing a team in charge of recognizing fake luxury goods, developing our relations with luxury brands and taking care of all legal issues and public affairs. In the meantime, I try as much as I can to shoot my morning outfits with my brother Edward Berthelot who is a street style photographer and to prepare and post my stories.
How would you describe your fashion style?
I try to stay classy with an original touch of preppy or rock. I wear a Chanel bag almost every day.
Who are your fashion idols?
Olivia Palermo and Miroslava Duma
What designers are you currently coveting?
Hedi Slimane and Karl Lagerfeld
