Judy Blame Interview

The number of interns and young stylists who screech on about Judy Blame, you'd think he was paid by the government to enlist recruits to the industry. Bored out of my skull as a kid, I found myself studying the minutiae of his every shoot in i-D Magazine, wondering what the hell a stylist was and who 'she', Judy Blame, was.

Monsieur Simons, Raf Simons at Dior20/11/2012
Simons was born in January 1968 to Jacques Simons and Alda Beckers in Neerpelt, which was “in the middle of nowhere, a village between cows and sheep.” Both parents came from big families, and gatherings with aunts, uncles, and cousins fostered a sense of community and togetherness that Simons, an only child, was drawn to. “I’d run to the next farm, where they had ten kids, and I would become the eleventh.” It wasn’t a life of privilege or wealth, but it was one of absolute love and dignity.
