The Angle On Alt: Raquel Zimmermann
By Kamila Brudzynska
A few years ago Raquel Zimmermann was interviewed by Brazilian GNT Fashion. She spent a day with the cameras and talked about the fashion industry. She discussed Inez & Vinoodh, David Sims, Karl Lagerfeld, Grace Coddington, Emmanuelle Alt, and her experience with fashion.
When asked, “A fashion editor who is an icon for me?” she named Grace Coddington and Emmanuelle Alt. “I really like Emmanuelle Alt from French Vogue. She understands what women want today. She’s taking fashion in a young way. Her style, that she shows. A lot of shows is a bit rock 'n’ roll, the seventies. She knows how to show something like disco or paillettes, or metallic. But in a cool, young way.”
Raquel has appeared at least 16 times in Vogue Paris editorials and half of that is her work with Emmanuelle. The photo shoots are elegant, mysterious, chic, punk, rock 'n’ roll — always different. Raquel can find herself in every theme and the effects are impressive.
Maybe it is the right time for Emmanuelle Alt to put Raquel Zimmermann on the cover of Vogue Paris for the first time?
