"What I love about this job is the possibility of working in a team with different personalities aimed at creating a picture or a story together"
Methta Gonthier

What is your signature?

I love perfection and imperfection at the same time…..the interplay of textures, light and shadows. I endeavour to keep make-up sensitive and pure.

What inspires you?

I draw much of my inspiration from music. I find fascinating the idea that each decade corresponds to a fashion. I also find stimulus during my town visits….the special architecture and atmosphere of the places that I have visited. In addition, nature trips help me to recharge my batteries.

What do you see as modern in today's make up?

I believe modernity will always mirror the major influences of the past . The ideas have moved evolved with their times and will never fall out of fashion…modernity is timeless.

What do you find fun about your job?

What I love about this job is the possibility of working in a team with different personalities aimed at creating a picture or a story together. The ability to call myself constantly into question fosters progress in my development.

And the job that you won’t forget?

Making a start at the top with the great Karl Lagerfeld for photography and Serge Girardi for fashion for a Numéro Hommes series in Karl’s studio with that huge library ... I was extremely impressed. An unforgettable occasion!
