It was in 1989 that I met Alexis, on the show “Tuileries 89”, in which I was the costumes designer with my friend Gad Weil. We were all so young. It is was a beautiful surprise to meet thirty years later to create his costumes around prominent characters such as this dear Talleyrand and Georges Clemenceau.

He trusted me, a few words were enough, it was like a shared vibration. He is one of those talented artists and men that I admire for their depth and intelligence. “A good guy” as they call them. It is a strenuous exercise to create a costume that is not a copy of time and that serves the game of physical artists such as Alexis and his friend Vincent Nemeth. They let me be in charge, and I thank them.
