How would you define the concept of style?
A mix of good taste, elegance and a sense of daring.
How would you describe your own sense of style?
My personal style (not my work) is minimalist, no color (black, white, grey, army green), and comfortable, with always a cool slightly avant garde factor. My style in my work is more varied, as I embrace editorial themes spanning anywhere from new romantics to 80ies rock. I like to create unexpected mixes. But always chic, cool and daring.
What advice can you give for putting together a look?
Be comfortable first in yourself and in your clothes, because if you are not, you will never look stylish. Then have fun creating an outfit appropriate for the event you have to attend and don’t forget your smile is your best accessory.
What’s the best thing about your job?
Creating beautiful images and working with creative, wonderful people whether they are part of the team or clients.
What’s your motto?
Positivity, Joy, Love of Life. I also love posting my inspiration images daily on instagram. I think you can see there the expression of my spirit. @christinedelassus
Do you have a style icon?
Tilda Swinton. She is chic, unconventional and always so elegant.
What is your favorite online shop?
None, I like to browse many sites and do my research online, but then most of the times I will buy in stores as I like to try and touch.
