Over years of researching her Icons and Muses project, Sofia Tchkonia has interviewed numerous influential figures of 20th and 21st century fashion and culture, including Pierre Berge, Rick Owens and Serge Lutens. She invited SHOWstudio to edit and release the footage as a series entitled Love, Money, God, a nod to the journalist's three key questions.
Following on from previous interviews with Jean-Paul Goude and Betty Catroux, this week's candid conversation is with fashion consultant and entrepreneur Michèle Lamy. Lamy discusses studying to be an attorney, opening a factory in LA and meeting Rick Owens, who she is now wife and muse to; 'I think I had seen him in the street. His look before was not so different to now, a little more fierce... He was sticking out.' Aside from her career, Lamy also ponders wrinkles, humanity, and what keeps her going: 'Tea and cigarettes!'
