5 minutes with Julien Boudet
Capturing the decisive fashion moment. 30. French. Resides in New York. Julien Boudet.
Are you a morning person or a night owl? Definitely a night owl, although I do wake up early everyday.
Why is capturing a moment so important to you? I believe certain moments in life are extremely beautiful and must last for eternity, so people that aren't there at that specific time and place to witness them live can get the chance to admire them, eventually.
4 things that keep you sane? My iPod, running/playing basketball, traveling and reading.

Why should people follow Bleu Mode? Bleu Mode represents my personal vision and through my website I am inviting my audience to a specific aesthetic experience. I don't share random things I see, it is carefully presented the way I want it to be, so they should visit it once to see if they appreciate my taste; if so they may want to follow my work.
Favorite place to eat and why? This might sound cheesy but I can't think of anything better than my mum's place. She is a very good cook and I don't get to eat there often, so these past years it has become a luxury to eat there. Plus she knows exactly what I like...
5 relevant people in fashion today? Haider Ackermann, Joerg Koch, Jun Takahashi, Rick Owens and Raf Simons.
How does your love of architecture play relevance to your job in fashion? Generally speaking, design is wonderful in the sense that it is what keeps us creative and motivated, it is truly engaging. Architecture and fashion do have this common energy that is enhancing people lives. Looking at architecture has helped me developing my photographic vision and the way I comprehend fashion.
Is fashion week still as fun for you as it was before it became as commercialized and overly hyped as it is now? Honestly it hasn't changed that much since I started, my first Paris Fashion Week was only 2 years ago and Milan last year. It's not like I'm an old timer but I've noticed some changes, obviously. There are more and more photographers out there but that's what it is, we have to deal with it and keep working in this intense atmosphere. Fashion wise I still see cool things happening, especially in Paris - so it's all good.
If you could wear one brand for the rest of your life, what would it be? Yohji Yamamoto, looking chic and cozy for the rest of my life.
What’s your guilty pleasure? Watching Dragon Ball Z.
