I I was a student in a Fashion school for became a stylist, but I change a direction career because if I wanted my dream came true I needed to move on to Paris, and it was not possible for me because I was too young for that.
So I decided to create my job career in fashion industry .i beginning to work for h&m as sale advisor during one year.
After I had my evolution to became a visual merchandiser because I had a real obsession with the marketing of the product ( how can I give the desire of the customers to get this product? How? How can I create a fashion look with the runaway style of the season only with my h&m pieces?
I work as an H&m VM for 1,5 years, and I changed my job because I wanted to be free in my ideas and creations of outfits on the mannequins.
I begin to work as a coordinator for the F21 brand, it was so exiting and more trendy than h&m, but it was not me.My goal was to work as VM job for a luxury brand, and I did it!I work for Printemps Brand it's very famous all around the world it's kind of mall which you can find a lot of designers department and collections for example in my shop I work with Valentino bags, Chloé, Balenciaga bags , Givenchy I create windows and me dresses all the mannequins in my shop with always some very trendy looks as seen on Runaway designer fashion show .
So with my job I create my fashion blog I writing about the fashion trends on seasons about the different fashion shows in all the fashion week in the world, I'm writing about the must-have, how to wearing the iron pieces of the season .. but it been a long time I'm not writing something new because I don't have time its more easy to post an outfit looks on Instagram than to write a new article (laugh) but I promise its coming..

I really like since I was a kid in a pretty creative guy I draw a lot of fashion collections from my mind, I created some artistic board with some vogue magazine pictures.
My last creation was an artistic board on Ysl theme with the three differents designers ( Stefano Pilati, Hedi Slimane and Anthony Vaccarello) It's very interesting for me to compare them and see her inspirations for her Saint Laurent Stories collections.
I adore the shopping as normal fashion blogger all the weeks I'm looking the news items on Zara and ASOS applications it's very important to me when I have a low budget for my clothes.
When I had much money, it's a paradise for me to get shopping at the designer's outlet.

I remember one time I passed an important interview for a VM job in luxury brand, and I said for won some good points and get the job I writing about her brand on my fashion blog but it was not true.
So when i went home my fist thing was to write an article about her brand very quickly before they had a look on my page!
floyd, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
It was recent, I was to get dressed a mannequin in an outfit I choose, and my boss came to me and said it was possible to dress her like that and he asked me a question: where have you seen an outfit like that?
So I answered him :
Hum last runaway of Saint Laurent Paris it was the same spirit and mix.
He said to me. Well okay, I made a mistake sorry you can keep going ur idea.
Floyd, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Blogger. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want with share to everyone. What is it and why?
It was when I created all the looks for the fashion runaway of my shop.
Normally the boss of the runaway organisation all year she created the looks but not this year because it was my mission. I thought I'm sure she will touch and get modifications on my choice looks, but she doesn't. And she was very enthusiastic and proud of my looks, so she congratulates me on my ideas and outfits
Floyd, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
It was for an old trend to follow (from Paris direction) in all the shop; the concept was to mix and match differents type of prints in the looks of mannequins store.
It was exiting because the idea was relly interesting but hard because it will be smart and sophisticated for made good choice
