Jean Paul Lespagnard -tells TV cameras how his life has changed since winning 2 prizes at the festival d’Hyeres

Dear Shaded Viewers,


Can winning a prize at a competition actually change one’s life? It certainly did for Raf Simons when he won the Swiss Textiles award and for Viktor & Rolf and Jean Paul Lespagnard when they all won prizes at the International Festival of fashion and photography d’Hyeres .

Jean Paul Lespagnard merges the couture with the street and sprinkles it all with a heavy dose of humour not to mention a few Belgian fries. JP did not attend one of the prestigious Belgian schools but got his career started by a school little known for fashion in Liege.

Recently JP styled the music video YELLE directed by Yoann Lemoine.
