When fashion stylist Christine de Lassus looks at clothes, the first thing she sees is a story. The cut, the drape, the history behind the piece; everything about it mixes with her knowledge of the industry, to create narratives that bring the fashion world to life. She gives these stories life through her spreads published in magazines like the international editions of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and L’Official. Born in Paris, Christine’s career has been defined by these stories, drawing inspiration not only from the pieces themselves, but from some of her favorite film directors and photographers, bringing as much influence from the films of Stanley Kubrick and David Lynch and the photographs of Irving Penn, Helmut Newton and Garry Winogrand as she does Prada, Alexander McQueen and Charles James. With a career that’s spanned over two decades and allowed her to collaborate with some of the biggest names in the business, Christine recently spoke with LASTBLOG about the roots of her career, her frustration with the changing nature of fashion publications, and how she creates the stories that define her work.
