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
