Christian Lacroix and his very first autograph, the request came from Lars Nilsson

Dear Shaded Viewers,

We are working on the edit for Chapter 2 of Mr. Pearl. Even though Chapter 2 is centered around Christian Lacroix, we still have to leave some bits on the cutting room floor. I totally enjoyed everything he had to say and found this bit quite charming, so decided to share it with you. The person asking for the autograph was the designer Lars Nilsson.
