Dion in Paris

The real Paris bears the same flavour that made this collection of Dion’s a hit, as can be said for Wang’s latest Balenciaga installment – a classic canvas portrait of a lady, defiantly embellished with street level hardware and industrial reflections a fickle industry.

  • Love their makeup and the styling. Great job, Margaret.




  • Veery good pictures. The collection shooting is brilliant… I think I wouldn’t think the same If I just encounter the clothes on a shelve.

    Here my latest post, about Louboutin’s new strategy of reaching younger consumers by engaging them with a special Tribal inspired action in their website.



  • Aditi Mayer

    Dodging on point.


  • love the photos !

  • Your shoots never fail to impress, loving each and every of them!! STOP being so amazingly talented!!! Nah, just kidding! Rock on!!



  • Your photography is so stunning, don’t know how you managed it while dodging traffic.

    Love your work Margaret, but these models are terrifyingly skinny! I’m sure you had little say in which models were hired for the magazine shoot but I think some more thought might be put in when choosing what goes on the blog. The incredibly gaunt black model in particular has me feeling too uncomfortable to fully enjoy the photography.

    • I actually thought the same thing, but wasn’t sure to say anything at first. It did make me slightly uncomfortable too. I’m glad you pointed it out.

  • Amazing shots Margaret and I must say this collection looks spectacular. Definitely made me consider the brand.

  • Emily Austin

    I’ve been following your blog for a while and am astounded at your talent and hard work! I hope as you climb up in the fashion world that you would consider using your clout to promote normal, healthy bodies. You can be drop dead gorgeous, 6′, skinny and HEALTHY. The black model was so gaunt it was distracting and stomach-turning.

  • Awesome post!

  • Love this inspiration! The bold print is amazing!


  • Francesca

    I love these shots and I love how you chose to shoot here and not the stereotypical Paris


  • I especially love the first two photos. The colors really pop out at you and I honestly really am digging the construction of the dresses. Dion Lee knows his shit. I also really liked how you switched the sizing of the photos throughout the post. It’s a little different from how you usually post pictures, but I really enjoyed it! I love when you experiment like that. ALSO, I thought you should know that the links to your YouTube and Pinterest pages at the top right of your blog are WRONG?? They redirect back to your website, whereas all the other links go to the correct place. Just thought you should know.

    • Thanks so much for the heads up!!

      So glad you love to pics/Dion’s pieces as much as I do.

  • Andres Poiche
  • great photographs, but somewhat over-photoshopped in my opinion…

  • Sacha D

    Oh Margaret, I still remember it, the moment I saw you during PFW!
    I was in the backseat of the taxi that was bringing me and my colleagues to the next buyers appointment when all of the sudden, there you stood, being photographed a gazillion times by all these street style photographers! It was so cool! You are such an inspiration!

  • Kay Young

    Personally, I think the black model is incredibly striking and I believe that very lean look is the natural build of many in certain parts of East Africa.

  • Leah

    Wow, beautiful, beautiful photos!

  • Beautiful images!
