Melinda is beautiful, Melinda is cool, Melinda is chic, Melinda is funny, Melinda is talented. You got it, Melinda is the coolest girl in Paris. She makes documentaries about fashion, teenagers, Parisiennes, but always in a sociological way. For those who haven’t seen her work, go here! So we met in the 11th arrondissement to shoot her down her new flat. Three hours later, giggles, serious reflection about the world of fashion, image, web, changing clothes in the street, botanical chat (Melinda is newly passionate by botany, and she unsuccessfully tried to introduce me to the fruit trees of the Gardette Park). Discover her fashion spirit with some pics!
