A day at Katrin Leblond’s Boutique

On 29th October 2015 I did a fabulous photo shoot with Katrin Leblond. She is the designer who has worked with Le Cirque du Soleil.  Renowned for her flamboyant colors and eccentric designs her boutique is located on St. Laurent Street in Montréal. 

I met the photographer Josée Lecompte and hair and make up artist Amélie Bertrand at L’Achipel studio 909 who got me ready. Two very generous persons and tatented in their fields. I arrived at the Boutique Katrin Leblond looking happy and excited. 

Katrin was working in the back putting her new designs together.  She smiled at me and said “let’s get started”.  I looked around the store and found unique in her style dresses and tops, wonderful skirts with crinolines.  I was amazed by the many colors.

I do recall coming into to her store to borrow a dress for my Video clip Qu’est-ce qu’on fait là in 2013.  That day was so easy.  With one look at my figure, she instantly found a perfectly matching strapless dress with a unique flowery hat and a jacket to match and voila. This was so amazing that she could do that. I loved her clothing so much that I ended up buying the dress and all.  I knew I would go back to see her one day and to thank her for giving me a style.  My original dress and all is now the cover of my album It’s My Dream.

Back to the shoot. I found a great top and she also tried to match my looks and we began taking photos. We laughed and enjoyed posing and making fun of ourselves.  Went around the boutique and took lots of shots. I recall having a great time being silly and yet sophisticated when needed. Ms. Leblond was so generous with her time and I think she too enjoyed the glamor and attention.  A beautiful person inside and out. Thanks Katrin for the day and the memories.

I am glad that I finally have a web site to put this reminiscent story.
