2020.03 02 – workshop diary


I will always remember the afternoon of August 24, 2015, when I went to greet Haruka Akasako at Zaventem airport. I had been waiting for months for the arrival of this 18 year old Japanese girl who came to my house to prepare before studying in London. Believe in the marvelous, like Ulysses after his shipwreck in front of Nausicaa, a king’s daughter who will help him and maybe love him? As soon as she appeared in the arrivals hall, I immediately understood the almost magical seductive qualities of the woman who would become my model for 5 years. Her silhouette and her look, her freedom of look and her natural elegance, her whole character and her fiery temperament. (diary of Monday March 2, 2020 Haruka Akasako à l’aéroport de Zaventem)
