INSTANTS DE MODE

Dominique DIEULOT lived through an era, a little bit of a free woman, a camera at arm's length, her piercing blue gaze on the lookout and the gift of capturing the magic of things.
Considering the fashion show as the most revealing and expressive event for designers, she invites herself to those of Popy Moreni, Maurizio Galante,
Issey Miyake, Romeo Gigli, Yohji Yamamoto, Comme des Garçons, Yoshiki Hishinuma,
Jean Paul Gaultier, Marc Le Bihan, Balmain, Adeline André, Lecoanet Hemant,
Paco Rabanne, Thierry Mugler, Hermès, Junko Shimada, Barbara Bui, Franck Sorbier...
In the intoxicating tumult of the show, in motion, away from the pack of photographers, she prints on her films, during fashion shows and backstage, the movement of a fold, the fall of a fabric, the detail of button, the worked elegance of the material, the vision of the creators and immortalizes the brilliance of a time when fashion was a celebration and embodied joy and freedom.
Dwelling on the "details" that make fashion a masterful art, her work is published in the magazines Joyce, Jardin des Modes, Marie-Claire Japon, View on color, Donna, Bloom, Vogue Hommes, Io Donna... and by the New York Times for which his photos illustrate a report on haute couture...
" Showing that a button at Chanel is like a jewel made according to the fabric, the pleats of Versace, the embroideries of Christian Lacroix, the laces of Valentino, the pearls imprisoned in a square of silk organza by Maurizio Galante [...] I remember, Valentino himself held the clothes for me so that I could photograph them. People would come up to me backstage and ask me what I was doing, no photographer was doing macro photography for details .” D. Dieulot
