Patrick Demarchelier was perched front row yesterday at Valentino, and we had to find out which shows the legendary photog attends when in Paris. Also: who’s Demarchelier’s favorite subject of all time? Plus! His other endearing passion outside of fashion, revealed…
What other shows do you attend at PFW?
I’m only here for three days! I’ve come to see Valentino, Dior, Vuitton, Chloé, and I saw Chanel this morning.
What did you think of the show?
It was very impressive. The show was really beautiful.
Do you have any favorite up-and-coming models you like to shoot?
None in particular, because there are so many young, beautiful girls right now.
What was your favorite shoot of all time?
When I photographed Princess Diana. That was a very special one.
Is there anyone you haven’t shot yet but would love to?
We wish! Do you ever shoot anything other than fashion?
Yes, I love animals! I loved to shoot my dog, but he died just two weeks ago. I’m very sad.
So sorry to hear that! What was his name?
Puffy. He was a daschund.
