What does it take to be the best? What sets you apart from the rest of the pack? What is it that makes magic a stark reality? What makes you the master of your trade?
Questions of success, questions that any individual will ask themselves to be the best that they can be. In the world of fashion, they are extremely relevant. What determines one persons talent over another? (If anyone has the answers, you can send them my way.)
You may ask what has sparked this inquisitive confrontation.
The answer, Patrick Demarchelier.
Above are some of his works of art depicting Dior haute couture as featured in the new book Dior Couture. Decadent shots, glorious images, wistful surroundings and magnificent fashion, Demarchelier is truly the master of his passion.
I can't put my finger on one exact reason as to what makes him the best.
He just is.
His work is magic.
For that he must be acclaimed.
