Haute Couture, summer 2018: Julien Fournié finds inspiration in Asia

Parisian fashion designer Julien Fournié is obsessed with Asian cinema of the 1990s - especially "The Last Emperor" by Bernardo Bertolucci and "Farewell My Concubine" by Chen Kaige. To pay tribute to Japanese ancestral techniques, he sprinkles his collection with fabric origami flowers. For Fournié, Haute Couture is about bringing together techniques and expertise from around the world seamlessly in a design. FRANCE 24 caught up with him in his studio, a few hours before his runway show.
