Let Them Eat Music photographer/videographer Julien Boudet recently released his short documentary Les Anges De La Mode. This documentary is all about getting the inside scoop on fashion and style in Los Angeles. I caught up with Julien for a brief interview! Check out his newest project Les Anges De La Mode.
Congrats on the release of your newest documentary! Why did you name it Les Anges De La Mode (Angels of Fashion)?
I think the title fits perfectly with the documentary, since these 25 “angels” have different styles but they’re also truly representative of the fashion movement in LA, which is relatively new, creative, and unique. Angels are kind and lovable by definition, and the way that these people treated me in Los Angeles was truly awesome (GGeisha, Matthew, Kelly, Phez…). So this title wasn’t hard to find.
Oh … and In case you’re wondering why it is in French, it’s to remind you that I’m French (in case you haven’t heard my lovely French accent) lol.
How would you describe the Los Angeles Fashion scene in three words?
Innovative, creative, and unique.
Was the Los Angeles fashion scene what you expected?
Well, honestly I wasn’t expecting to find so many stylish people in LA. I was thinking I would see a lot of people wearing Ed Hardy, those people unfortunately would not have been a part of the documentary (lol).
Do you think Los Angeles is a representative of style, fashion or both?
LA is definitely more style than fashion, mainly because people tend to wear a lot of vintage clothes and accessories, although the fashion movement is definitely coming up, with brands like SKINGRAFT , a high-end couture brand.
What is your favorite quote from the documentary?
Who are some of your favorite Los Angeles based designers?
Jonny Cota (Skingraft) and Steven Alan.
What was the highlight of shooting the short documentary?
Lol! Those who were in LA with me (Maxime, Morgan, Lou) know what it is. Unfortunately I can’t talk about it here but it was something pretty crazy, I assume GGeisha remembers it very well, and hopefully things are getting better now.
Sounds scandalous… You should do a follow up documentary about whatever happened!So you’ve filmed documentaries in New York and Los Angeles, Will you be covering the fashion scene in any other cities?
Of course. However the NY documentary was more like a presentation of the city itself. I will do another NY video soon, this time focused on fashion, this way we’ll see the difference between fashion on the East and West coast.
As for the other cities, all I can say is that I’ll go to Europe and Asia in a few months. Let’s see what’s going to happen. To find out, stay tuned.
Awesome! Sounds great … I can’t wait to see your upcoming documentaries!
Merci! & stay tuned on Julien Boudet

The Brooklyn Library is filled with books of words I never said and I couldn’t get Lupe Fiasco’s lyrics to “Words I Never Said” out of my head. I agree with his concept of the “Words I Never Said” track, I think that a lot of my thoughts are trapped in my head forced to be only thoughts, mostly because I am too scared to get them out. Too worried about what people will think about me, my ideas, and my beliefs. Every once in a while a good song or album comes along and brings about a topic that so many people have tried to write countless books about.. the truth.
I think somewhere between a well written book and a writer’s thoughts are songs that capture it all, which leads to an album that tries to create a story out of it, that album is Lupe Fiasco’s Lasers. The album touches upon so many relevant and interesting topics (“All Black Everything”) and the album does it in an innovative way. Without a doubt Lasers has a different sound from what we are all used to from Lupe, but the production on the album is updated and current mixed with what most would categorize as “Conscious Hip Hop” lyrics.
However, in my view there is nothing conscious about good music and art.. it just is. So therefore Lasers is a great balance of major label demands with the indie spirit that we all know Lupe Fiasco continues to kick, push and coast with. I definitely recommend this album out today on Itunes and wherever else dope music is sold.
