AMAZING, FANTASTIC, JOYFUL, FUN!
I have no other words for describing my first London Fashion Week in 7 years. In few minutes, you will enjoy a tiny sample fo my first day in London and I am sure you’ll enjoy it as much as I enjoyed it.
Daniel Craig : Kamel, didn’t you already attended the London fashion Week.
Kamel : Yes, like I said, it was 7 years ago. One year only after I started my blog.
Daniel Craig : and how was it?
Kamel : fantastic! It was my very first time in London, so it was really exciting.
Daniel Craig : did you take great pictures?
Kamel : that’s the problem Daniel. I met and encounter very great and cool people but the quality of my pictures at that time were so bad compared to my pictures now.
Daniel Craig : how do you feel when you watch these “technically bad” pictures from your first London Fashion Week Kamel?
Kamel : I want to cry because people were so kind to me. They motivated me to explore the humanist side of street style photography, even though less money is to be made in that regards. This stay in London and the Londoners motivated me to humanize fashion like never before.
Daniel Craig : you see Kamel, these pictures still move you because they have a meaning to you, no matter how technically bad they were. Your were starting street style photography, you didn’t have the money to buy a great camera and it’s OK. Because what people you met will remember, it’s not the pictures you take of them, but the quality of the moment you offer them. And that is called Life, living.
Kamel : thank you very much Craig for your support. You are a true gentleman. Even in real life, you behave like James Bond.
Daniel Craig : my pleasure Kamel, I love your work and the humanity in your pictures. Where can we see your “old” London Fashion Week and Street Style pictures my friend?
Daniel Craig : what else made your second London fashion week so great?
Daniel Craig : good question Daniel. You might not know it but here’s a truth: I always refused to promote any brands because up to now, none of them did understand and respect my values and artistic choices. Until I’ve been contacted by The May Fair Hotel in London. They checked my blog and Instagram, read my stories and understood that my work is more about telling stories than showing close shots of bags and shoes.
Daniel Craig : they understood that you try to humanize fashion. Very cool. So rare to see brands sincerely interested by humanist values. Usually they look for influencers with the most followers even if some their content can be amazingly superficial and fake.
Kamel : that’s exactly the pont Daniel. They offered me to stay in their Hotel during all fashion week in exchange of using my pictures in their Instagram and communication.
Daniel Craig : very cool of them. How was the people, the room, the hotel, the food and the Martini?
Kamel : Fantastic! Very kind and helpful people and for the accommodation, just check by yourself. I hope you’ll book your room there next time you come to London.
Daniel Craig : that’s a really cool luxurious hotel Kamel. I’m definitely book a room there next time I come to London.
Kamel : Great! The team even book me an interview with London Live, the local London TV channel. Can you believe it! I have to speak in English and OMG! I hate my French accent. My ITV starts at 4’15.
Kamel : thank you very much Daniel.
Daniel Craig : what about showing us some of these encounters now? I am sure you captured some great and fun moment. And even created them.
Kamel : we never met Daniel but I guess you know me very well through my work. Ok, let’s start the fun! And if you recognize some of these girls, women, men Daniel, please leave their names in a comment.
Daniel Craig : will do Kamel.
Among the nice people I met, beautiful and pregnant Anna Foster couldn’t stop making her friend Mimav laugh,
I encounter beautiful young girls but were too shy to talk to her.
Daniel Craig : I can’t believe that you can be shy Kamel.
I can Daniel, that’s why I love to take candid pictures…
and fun emotions…
Want to know why I loved London and its people so much Daniel? Check this guy! Doesn’t he look fantastic?
Daniel Craig : what a look! Was she made at you Kamel?
Kamel : I don’ know in fact. I think she was wondering what I was doing with my big camera without thinking that she could be of any interest to me.
Daniel Craig : she’s beautiful.
Kamel : Exactly!
Daniel Craig : what did you tell her to make her smile.
Kamel : I say so many stupid things Daniel that I am glad I can’t remember them, lol.
Daniel Craig : ho ho, who is this angel?
Kamel : Damned! She gave me her name but I forgot. Let me update it later. She is an US fashion blogger.
Daniel Craig : I know her. Eimear Varian Barry. is she pregnant too?
Kamel : definitely. beautiful pregnancy.
Daniel Craig : look at these cutes kids. And people behind them, they are all looking at them. What happened Kamel?
Kamel : I got them going out of the crowd and posing for me. People are all watching because I gave them instruction to look very great in front of the camera and add some funny jokes. I also made them jump. So funny. You’ll see that in a new article. Just want to keep some good stories for later.
Daniel Craig : you are terrific Kamel!
Kamel : I love kids Daniel.
Daniel Craig : I know her too. She is the talented swimwear designer Kimberley Garner.
Kamel : bingo!
Daniel Craig : and here’s her stylish friend, Isabelle Koening.
Kamel : I guess you know all the beautiful ladies of London.
Daniel Craig : no. But they know me. lol
Kamel : do you know the German fashion blogger Chrissa Bella?
Daniel Craig : no, but I love her style.
Kamel : and do you know him?
Daniel Craig : wow! Who is this great guy Kamel? His eyes, his tattoos, he looks fantastic!
Kamel : definitely a character for one of your movie.
Daniel Craig : you are damned right. Please, take his number next time you meet him.
Kamel : promise.
Kamel : here’s a person you should meet too Daniel. Tess Ward. She is a food consultant and I guess that the sport man you are need the healthiest food to stay ripped.
Daniel Craig : I will definitely reach at her.
Daniel Craig : who is she.
Kamel : I don’t know Daniel.But I thought that a some point she will pull a rabbit out of her sleeve.
Daniel Craig : that’s not cool.
Kamel : I’m kidding Daniel. I loved her look and she look some emotionally involved in getting her cab that I couldn’t help myself capturing the moment.
Daniel Craig : that’s great stuff that you have Kamel here.
Kamel : and it’s just a tiny sample from my first day.
Daniel : I can’t wait to see more.

Daniel Craig : thank you very much Kamel. You are a great person. Was cool talking to you. See you soon?
Kamel : whenever you want.
