In this episode of Fashion: No Filter, Monica and Camille sit down with French fashion documentarian Loic Prigent, who is known for his innovative insider documentaries, narrated in his famous humouristic tone which dissect the fashion world of today. Prigent's films feature fashion icons Jacquemus, Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Jacobs, Jean Paul Gaultier, Tom Ford, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler, Sonia Rykiel and Chanel -- there are lots more, but that makes for a very long sentence.


It seems Prigent was always intended for the unique cross-section where fashion and broadcast journalism collide: his breadth knowledge of the industry and its history is profound, his witticisms are endlessly observant. He has essentially invented his own style of fashion reporting, holding up a colourful mirror to the industry itself, whilst allowing us all to take a step back and chuckle about its absurdities. 


How did the young Loic Prigent growing up on the French Atlantic coast begin dreaming of Fashion Shows? And how, for that matter, did he begin getting invited to them, eventually gaining the trust of the most exclusive houses, to the extent that they invitingly open their doors to his camera crews (a rare feat)


Tune in to find out how he strikes the balance, what it felt like to sit out a season on account of being quarantined, and to hear his take on some of Paris Fashion Week's most dramatic, silly and controversial happenings
